    Thanks for the photos! Looks like the weather was in full cooperation for you guys! Wish I'd been there, but the weekend up at Elkin's Flat was similarly steller:D

    I love fall in California :raabia

    Thanks for the pix. That's my old stomping grounds. Last time I rode the ridge road was after a fire, (don't remember which one tho), and everything on the ground was black or gray. And the sky was an incredible blue. That was also the first time I saw the bald eagles up there...... Thanks for bringing back that memory.

    I'm planning on taking a group from Hwy 1 up Plaskett Rd to S Coast Ridge Rd to Nacimiento-Ferguson and then down to Hwy 1.

    I'm familiar with N-F road, but not the rest. Will Plaskett and S Coast Ridge be okay for R1200GS's (i.e. reasonably graded etc.)??

    Plaskett road is gated a few miles up. It crosses private property
    and the property owners only allow USFS vehicles for emergency
    access.

    You can do the same loop starting at Los Burros rd. off of HYW1
    five miles further south. Look for the Treebones resort, Los Burros
    road is to the left.

    You should not have any problems on the 1200GS's, I rode it a
    few years back with a friend who was on a 1200GS.
