through cold and cloudy California Highway 1 - April 2015

I needed to visit San Francisco for a business reason, but taking such a long trip from Europe for just one day would be crazy, so I decided to add 3 more days, rent a bike and finally cross California Highway 1 off my Bucket List.

So I picked Harley Davidson Sportster 1200 (back at home I am riding something completely different (F800GS), but I thought "hey, when riding on California hgw 1, you need to do it on a proper American bike, right?") and this bike was a part of this adventure... for a moment I was sure that the gearbox is broken, but then I was told that's the "beauty" of it ;)

My route was rather simple - from San Francisco through Half Moon Bay, Santa Cruz, Carmel, Big Sur down to Morro Bay.

Weather was a surprise too - it was cold as hell. I was putting almost all I had on me to stay warm. California, man.
... but I liked it anyway. I liked it a lot. Here's a little video I took, enjoy:


Riding F800GS feels now like flying in the air ;)

Cheers,
rfk

Thanks for sharing your adventure!

It looks cold but the views likely made you forget the chill
Nice video thanks for sharing it and enjoy your west coast trip.
