ST1300s were flawless and comfortable
We picked up the two ST1300s on a fine morning in February, and once Scott was happy we could handle RHD bikes, we set off on a great 4 days down the Big Sur coast, taking in Carmel, Santa Cruz, Monterey, Pismo Beach, as far as Santa Barbara, which was closed at that time of year. Then a great road, the I33 (the best I’ve ridden) up through the mountains and back via James Dean’s junction. Yes we had a spot of very cold, very wet riding, but the bikes were flawless and comfortable, and when the sun shone, it was a magical experience for a couple of Brits. We knocked off around 1000 miles, and without question would do it again. One thing about February, you can haggle some great deals at the top hotels, or travelodge for $20 each!
