"101 south to 580 East to 5 South"?

Not the route I'd take. I'd head out of Arcata on 299 towards Weaverville, take the 3 to connect with 36 and take 36 back to 101; Nice big loop with some fantastic riding. Just for the fun of it....

Unless you really need to make time, I'd avoid that stretch of I5 from San Francisco to LA. It's the most boring bit of road I've ever traveled.

Interesting

I wonder if the increased success of competent independents has pushed BMW to move toward greater market coverage?

Whatever the motive, good for BMW owners, I suspect.
