Best Ride Yet
Yesterday was motorcycle heaven (or at least sportbike heaven) as far as I was concerned. A few members of my riding club and I went on an incredible 300+ mile journey covering four counties and three of the best roads I've ever ridden.
Riding a great road in perfect weather is every biker's dream day, so imagine riding three great roads back to back to back in perfect weather. We started in Ojai, California and took highway 33 north through the mountains of the Los Padres national forest. That was followed by Lockwood Valley Road with its mix of twists, dips and wide open straights. Next came Cerro Noroeste, probably my favorite road so far even after riding it just once. We looped around and took highway 33 south back to Ojai, a nice treat to end the day.
It was over 300 miles including getting to Ojai and back from where I live. My R6 isn't exactly built for comfort so I was definitely in a little pain at the end of the day. No matter; it was still the best ride I've been on and well worth the soreness. I can't wait to do it again.
