    Tim riding sweep.



    David at Ragged Point - first on the Ducati



    Then trying out the feel of the K1200S - his bike felt like a child's toy compared to the big 1200.



    And together

    50 / 50 - Sportbikes, Harleys, Ducati's, the Drifter in the back- that's Pashnit.



    A little bonus loop at the end of the day was Turri Rd. This is a short ride outside Morro Bay- quite swoopy, deserted, and you guessed it- Beautiful. Nearby is another fun ride- Perfumo Canyon Rd, but not enough daylight left for that one.

    The sun began to set, and I got the right light I needed to shoot this road. Everything glows in this light.



    Plus I finally got the light I was waiting for to shoot the BMW K1200S.

    Just beyond these hills is the Pacific Ocean.




    These low hills are called the 'Seven Sisters' for their close relations to one another- a series of low peaks up to 2500 feet tall that surround the San Luis Obsipo area.




    Add in a bike.




    Always shoot at least two. On the other side of this hill to the right is San Luis Obispo.

    Last shot of Day 1 - watching the sun go down. Just enough time to high-tail in back to the hotel and jump in the Jacuzzi!

    Day 2



    Tepusquet Rd is a personal favorite. Think goat trail with brand new silky smooth pavement. Dreamy stuff. Give you a general idea, this is this ascent on the northen end.

    That Pashnit Guy. Hey, normally I'm the one taking all the pics.





    Conferring with Kevin on attempting to get some moving shots of the bike. You get a sense of size of this K Bike from this shot.

    167 Horsepower crammed in there.



    Handling is superb!




    I think it fits me.



    Time to mosey

    Re: Beautiful. A Pashnit Tour of Coastal California.

    Destination: Solvang to check out the Motorcycle Museum. Quite a few of the riders had never been there. Here's Mark checkin' in. Could spend hours in here just photographing bolts and speedos and valve stems. You always see something new.




    No, the Triumph Speed Triple is not the first one to use two bike headlights out front.

    The plaque reads: "1932 Brough Superior. in the early 30's, the best and fastest motorcycles were my by George Brough in England. Lawrence of Arabia was killed on a Brough Superior SS100. This model as a small JAP (no, not Japanese - J.A. Prestwick of England) engine - 680cc instead of the 1000cc. In 1936 Vincent came out with their own V-twin engine, and relegated the Brough to #2."




    The plaque reads: "1957 Maico Typhoon. Maico, a German manufacture, made mostly off-road motocross bikes. This is a fairly rare (I haven't seen another one) road model with a 400cc two-stroke twin engine. Notice all the art that went into the fenders, engine and enclosure. The engine castings are even made to flow into the bodywork."
