Clean air - - - I'd be kind, slow, and wave my hand like the queen for that....

It is not the most exciting roads but the scenery is great and the air is clean. All good baby. Come on up!
Please PM me your name to drop if I get stopped.....

W/re summit... The county made the road. The only ppl claiming it's private are homeowners there that are stuck with maintaining it - the county doesn't. But that doesn't mean right of easement no longer applies...

On the other hand, I ride it respectfully. I don't kick up lots of dust and if I see any traffic, I slow down, especially pedestrians or equestrians. I always smile and wave. Spread the love...
I checked with Santa Cruz county, that part of summit is most definitely private. Even Verizon had to get permission to drive/work up there....

Isn't there a statute that allows public utilities an easement to private property in order to service their equipment?

No idea, I can only relay what I was told by the county when I enquired about that section of Summit.

Most of Summit Rd is on the border line between counties. And I'm not so certain it belongs to Santa Cruz County.

+1. Open gates are good to go. Don't skirt around closed ones. Ride slow and wave at the locals. I think a quiet exhaust is a big plus. Primary reason I still have the stock cans on.

No statue needed for this. Public utilities will (almost) always be granted an easement into private property. It has to be applied for and recorded, but if they don't then the property owner will not get his electric/ gas/ water/ telco...etc. Most property owners are hooked to the grid, so it's in their interest to provide the easement. Since the only major restriction on the easement is that you cannot place a structure on it, most owners don't care.

Hey folks. I've mentioned to a bunch of you at some recent gatherings that I had scary crash on my Western TAT trip. No Ride Report yet, but I have posted the video in Face Plant: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=867625

P.S. I'm fine.

Ride to Avila

Been riding with my wife lately and when I heard Larryboy recently bought a Gold Wing, Black just like mine, we joined up for a ride with our wives and two other couples and headed to Avila Beach for some Clam Chowder.

Had a great time. Who knew my first ride with Larryboy would be on a street bike.

Because my wife said she wanted to ride more with me I told her she could pick out the next bike she would be comfortable on. After test riding four bikes, there was no doubt in her mind which one she wanted once she rode on the Gold Wing. Now she is willing to ride with me anytime I ask.

In our group were two Gold Wings, a VStrom and a BMW K100. All four women were troopers and I didn't hear one complaint. What a great group of people to spend a long day riding with.

Peach Tree Road

Avila Beach


There is actually motorcycle parking in Avila so we squeezed into the two spots with a scooter.

Wow Joe. Glad you made it out of that situation OK. Your story is another good reason to not ride alone if possible and carry a Spot. Stuff can happen..........

Had a great time. Just another sun up to sun down day of riding.............

The bikes look more like Bat Wings than Gold Wings.............but they sure are comfortable.
