Actually there are some BAD THINGS about "toasting the coast"
I had the misfortune to be driving that route northbound on 'race weekend Friday' from Santa Barbara along the coast a few years back. Granted I was riding a GW tourer but doing the speed limit, sort of ..thru the 'twisties' along Hwy 1..that is, slowing to about 45mph in "Slow to 30" curves with double yellow lines and 50 in slo to 35's etc..
It was during these times, at least 6 TIMES, groups of 2-3 crotch rockets would SCREAM past, around BLIND CURVES, Double Yellow lines, WRONG SIDE at crazy speeds...time and time again.
I know that this is just someone's way of cleaning up the IDIOT gene pool but, it seems its just not working FAST ENOUGH.
SAVE the RACING for the track !!
