Anyone interested in a Ride / Meetup in Morro Bay?

I am thinking of taking a ride sometime in October (most likely the 2nd, 3rd or 4th weekend). Leaving from Sacramento. I most likely will take HWY 1 down there. Considering other routes home. Leave on a friday and come back on a Sunday. I was curious if anyone is interested in riding along or maybe doing a V-strom meetup in Morro Bay. I did this before when I had my ST1300 with the owners group and it was great. There are plenty of inexpensive motel options as well as a nice campground if you prefer camping.

I'm likely to be free, currently I have scheduled a Tech Day on the 16th but so far the 1 person has responded that they can come the 23rd (?) the following saturday so I may move it to then.

I too would have thought the CA group would be more active, given the strom population, usually good weather and variety of destinations/roads available. I figure most don't want to commit too far ahead and as it gets closer will chime in if all the planets come into alignment in their work/home life.
The 3 "events" I have been able to go too have been great. One was with just 2 other people and we a a GREAT time , so it doesn't even have a be a big thing to be successful.

I didn't write this guide. It magically appeared. You didn't read it. Knightstrom didn't write it. Knightstrom doesn't endorse it. In fact, YOU wrote it.

If you don't agree that you wrote this guide for your own use, do not follow this guide.

If you agree that you wrote this guide for your own use, and your Strom doesn't work after following this guide, its your fault.

Do you have a prefernce on which weekend? My father in law may come along on his ST1300. I am sure you are right on more people chiming in as we get closer to the time. I am actually probably not going to make any reservations and just find a place when I get down there. Theres a ton of places so I am not real worried about not finding a room.

2nd weekend of the 9th and 10th probably works best. Weather is still generally pretty good . if not there are places inland some that are good rides too.

Sounds good. I was leaning toward the weekend of the 9th and 10th. Where are you located at? I will be riding down there on that Friday the 8th. I will probably ride to half moon bay and go down the coast along Hw1 the whole way.

I live 30 minutes away from Morro Bay- i'll keep that weekend open and can recommend places to eat and roads in the area. It's been a real mild summer - meaning in the coastal areas the marine layer "June Gloom" shas bee around all summer. It's just now starting to stay offshore and getting pleasant in the coastal area's . Hoprfully it continues. If not coming into the North County (inland 20 miles) over the coastal range, the weather has been nice and not the usual 100's that regularly occur - in fact this weekend it's supposed to get to 90 again instead of the 70's we've been having.

Knightstrom, that would be good. I am somewhat familiar with the area. My grandma used to live in Morro Bay and as a kid, I went there alot. However, I am not completely familiar with all the great motorcycle road. The restraunts seem to change a little every time I go there as well. I suppose the flying dutchman and Harbor Hut are still there. My father in law is planning on riding with me, he is on an ST1300. I just need a little getaway right now and Morro Bay is a nice ride.

I'm interested. I'll keep that weekend open. It's a straight shot for me down the 41 to Morro Bay, or... Monkey Man, if you're interested we could meet somewhere along HWY 1 in the Monterey/Carmel area and bomb the coast together to the bay.
