SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA COASTAL EXPLORER SCOUTING
This all-paved motorcycle adventure was created to give riders the ultimate SoCal coastal experience within six days of riding. Day one has us meandering off the direct route in between Long Beach and Ojai in search of curvy roads. We’ll spend two nights in Morro Bay as well as Monterey allowing us to spend more time enjoying the spectacular out-rides and less time on packing and unpacking. We’ll cruise south on the Pacific Coast Highway from Monterey to Santa Barbara with the ocean and the many scenic viewpoints to our right providing the best opportunities to stop for some of the best scenic photos and wildlife viewing. The trip concludes as we return to our Long Beach, California facility.
Road Conditions: This motorcycle tour features excellent paved, twisty tarmac and open highways. This itinerary was curated to feature resplendent roads along the Southern California coast.
