Re my second trip to So Cal

If you are here at the end of the month, go to Monterey and GP race!
Or if the timing is wrong, Santa Barbara and mid coast (Hearst Castle) is a pretty place to spend a day or two!

E vs ADV

E model works very well. Seat can be replaced by either Renazco or for less than 1/2 that get a Komfort seat from the dealer.
200 miles on a tank is not a problem, engine parts are interchangeable....
