Re: West Coast in Sept.

Will probably need to help with some maps but things I would try to do on the way down (when I have people form out of state that want to ride, these are the places I try to get them too):

From the Oregon Border
Oregon Caverns
Lost Coast Highway
Avenue of the Giants
Hwy 36 (Maybe a 299/36 loop)
Skaggs Spring Road
Farifax/Bolinas Road
Golden Gate Bridge view point on the North Side
Conzelman and Bunker Road for a view of the GGB from the west side.

South of the Golden Gate Bridge
Skyline (Hwy 35)
Carmel Valley Road
HWY 58 to HWY 33 through Ojai
HWY 2 (Angeles Crest Hwy)

From there heading inland, there are lots more options. I will leave the Oregon stuff to those locals.

The Rock Store if you're there is worth the stop just cuz it is pretty cool on the weekends.

What's the other one on the coast? Neptune's Net? Another big biker spot.

PCH (Hwy 1) is better midweek although Sept you won't have the summer winniebagels slowing things down.

+1 on 33!!

Re: West Coast in Sept.

Astoria is a nice town to visit. The north coast is more expensive and touristy. South on 101 is Newport. You could go inland on 20 and the head back to the coast on 34. 34 is a great road. Cape Fowlweather has a great view and you might see a whale too. Yahats is a good stop.
More later; when i get home. I'm up at Crater Lake doing my ski patrol duty.
