California is motorcycle heaven for motorcyclists. With its year-round riding, superb routes through mountains, coasts, deserts, grand forests, and an enthusiastic and supportive motorcycle scene, it's easy to see why. In this updated and expanded new edition, Clement Salvadori, one of motorcycling's most popular journalists, guides you along some of the lesser-known motorcycling gems in California, as well as pointing the way to the unspoiled places of Mexico's Baja peninsula. Routes are often clustered around base camps, which means you can leave your luggage and explore an area unencumbered for several days. The book is filled with detailed maps, photographs, easy-to-follow directions, and tips on where to stay and what to see and do. Some of the best trips include: The Central Coast and Big Sur Highway, San Francisco and the Bay Area, Lassen National Park and the Northern Sierra Nevadas, Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks, Death Valley, Palm Springs, Julian and Eastern San Diego County, and of course the fabulous Baja California.
