Ride for Dad

Hello all. My father died January this year. He was diagnosed with lung cancer on my birthday and passed 10 days later. He was a true rider, averaging 12-15,000 miles a year. He always said that every man should own or ride a Harley just once. In 2009 he bought his first, a brand new Heritage Classic. When he passed, I purchased it from my step mother. We'd discussed riding up the coast in recent years, but it just never happened. So I'm leaving in January on my birthday with his bike to make that ride.

I'll be starting in Yuma and heading to Cambria/San Simeon Campground on Day 1.
On Day 2, I'll ride up to San Francisco and cross the Golden Gate Bridge before turning around to camp at a KOA in Santa Cruz. On both days I'll ride just along the coast, avoiding any Interstate.
Day 3 I'll leave Santa Cruz and take the 101 to Paso Robles.
Day 4, Paso to Kingman AZ. (highway 46 to I5 to the 58/40 all the way Kingman)
Day 5, Home to Tucson.

Anyone is welcome to join me for any length of the ride.
