    Sunday road down to SLO (San Luis Obispo) to attend a family event (Dad's 90th Birthday). Due to time limitations took Highway 101 all the way down. Had to come back next day and took a little detour on the way home. Since Highway 1 is still closed I headed inland. Quick stop for a pic in San Miguel. Parents eloped and were married here around 70-years ago.

    Took the advice of another inmate and headed to Indian Valley Road just outside of San Miguel.
    No traffic and 70 degrees, what's not to like.

    Basically only cattle ranches out here and not much else.

    Then it was time to take Peach Tree Road which offered up a nice smooth surface and great scenery.

    Then it was onto Highway 25 to Hollister (only took 1 photo on Hwy 25)

    After that 101/85/280/ and back 101 to home. Thankfully San Jose/Bay Area traffic was light. But from Hollister all the home it was really windy. KTM 1290 SA-T a great bike for a trip like this. 550 miles over 2-days with an average of 38.7 mpg. Usually mpg is better but between the wind and having the side cases on mpg suffered a bit

    Just did this trip (Indian Valley, Peachtree and Hwy.25) last Saturday after camping in San Simeon for a couple of nights. On the way headed south we had to take a detour into King City for some great tacos:) Great ride!

    Tacos La Potranca and the Guadalajara are both good and nearly next to each other. They are both on the east end of Broadway closer to where you come in from Hwy. 25.

    My then girl and I were just walking around downtown, had lunch, etc. I recall saying, “I could live here”. She agreed. We both just loved the vibe and flow of the area. I felt peace and comfort.
