    Awesome ride report!

    Good to see you were able to find one of those medical marijuana stores while you were on your trip!

    Truly enjoyed the video in post #14. Honestly it's a first for me to view a 5 minutes plus video in its entirety. Why? No music, no chatting, no wind noise, just the engine. Nice landscape and good surface for this riding.
    Luckily few cagers in your lane or being stuck behind a hay truck! :evil

    By the way, how did you avoid wind noise? I have an earplug pasted on top of the mic but still get some noise through.
    Thanks for a refreshing report.

    yeah the video is low quality, too long and not fancy enough for most folks but i think it imparts what that road is like for us motorcyclists. so beautiful, all i have to do is mention 14A to my brother and he smiles.

    thanks for the kind words.
