Joe, the moto dude that I met on my third day of this road trip, met up with me around the state on his days off. I told him since how part of this trip was about me facing my fears, like traveling solo, he couldnt ride with me everyday. We camped a few nights in Big Sur, had a fun time in Solvang, and checked out Ventura.
When we were in Ventura Joe drove his van there, so we rode double on my motorcycle. I figured since how he's a far more experienced rider and I only had a passenger once before, I let him drive. I am bummed there wasnt time to take a second run on Mullholland Highway, the motorcycle destination road, because I really wanted to ride. Next time.
