Errr...Hwy 1 goes through Oxnard (it becomes Oxnard Blvd) until it hooks up with the 101 at Wagon Wheel.

It does not split off and become its own hwy again until after Gaviota (Gaviota Pass).

No pictures of the Peach at Mugu's Missile Park?

Great photographs

Reading your ride report is like taking a photography class. Beautiful work. Keep posting those photos.

oh those sun photos hurt my eyes, but they sure were pretty. I think the mirror shot was a really nice touch.

Glad you made it home OK.

Those guys at South Bay Triumph build some GREAT bikes. Really small shop, hard to find, but a real jewel when you do.

You evidently ran PCH all the way up from Laguna. Probably not the best way, as you found out. It goes through some not so nice neighborhoods. I'm surprised that your tour guides didn't show you the really scenic route. You have to weave around a bit but the plus is some seriously great scenery & ocean views almost the whole way.

Been following this since the start. Very nice pictures & writing.

Hey DP,
Your shots from California are making me miss it a little, even my daily commute from Rodent Park to Foster city back in the 80's on my bike.
Head on up to Oregon sometime, we have some great roads and more than just a few sights......
