Ride from SoCal to Big Sur for camping

My latest trip from Newport Beach, CA to Big Sur for camping overnight. Next trip is camping in Sequoia NF, then Road to Hana in April, then in May epic trip from LA to Purdhoe Bay, AK.

Thanks for the video, looked to be a nice ride for sure. You are right, the now is all we have, so savor it!

Riding requires a lot of decision making and attention, and that helps many riders forget their worries and stress of life, while they ride. At least that's how it works for me.

Great Video. When did you do the ride? I accompanied a buddy of mine and rode down PCH from northern Oregon this past May back to LA. What a great area of the country to see on a motorcycle. How long did it take you to ride from Newport to Big Sur?

Thanks for watching the vid. This was two weeks ago that i recorded it.
From Newport to the camp area was about 7 hours, 350 miles taking my time to take video and pics. It is quite a beautiful place and even better off-season, less tourists.

Ak trip

Perhaps I will see you on the road. Leaving for the Dempster Highway, Yukon Territory, May 23 from Pahrump, NV. Thought about the Dalton but I think I will fly to Anchorage next year, Rent a Bike and do Prudoe. Planning on being in Dawson for DtD June 19,20, then head home. Want to be there and back before tourists descend en Mass. Have a great ride.

After watching the video, I'm inspired to start doing short overnight trips. Your photography is great! I am really contemplating just hopping on the bike next week and heading for Big Sur with an overnight pack. Thanks for posting again. What was the overnight temp up there camping?

Im glad I could inspire a few people with my videos. I have a few more videos up on YT that are longer and a bit more exciting.

Im leaving for Purdhoe Bay, AK on May 31st, 2014. Ill definitely check on Advrider often as time grows closer, to find out if I could link up with anyone along the way. Im planning 2 days from Newport Beach, CA to Vancouver, Canada. Then 3 days to AK/Canada border, then 2 days to get to the Arctic Ocean

Road to Hana is first though, Im renting a Vstrom in Maui, HI in April...ill be recording it and hopefully edit a decent video out of all.
