I have lived in the central coast of California for the last 50+ years and I always feel lucky to live here. Such a diverse landscape and a coast line that matches any place on earth. For the last couple of mount highway 1 has been closed due to wild fires. Along with the fires the air was almost unbreathable due to smoke. This week the fires were under control, the smoke was gone, and the highway was open to the public so I had to take advantage of the perfect condition to go motorcycle riding!
