You have it all: Giants trees, hairpins, Elevation at the pass, Coastal cliffs, Evergreen Forests, Wineries, and some rolling desert like terrain, all on beautiful grippy tarmac with no traffic.
Ditto - I've ridden damn near everything in NorCal over the past 10 years...on every bike imaginable 1200GS, 70's superbikes, Goldwings, and a ZX14 with hardbags. The road from Leggett to Fort Bragg is as good as it gets anywhere in the continental USA. I've ridden that stretch at least half a dozen times...BOTH WAYSS. 20+ miles highly tortuous tarmac through the "Sherwood Forest" with little to zero traffic. It just doesn't get much better than this.
