Looks like a pretty good place to ride. I've been riding the 84 (between 280 and 1) at least once a week for a few months and love it. I'll have to give this a try if it ever stops raining.

9 has too much traffic. In the east bay, there's Calaveras, Palomares, then Redwood. All of those are a blast and have a bit less traffic.

I have only ordered my WRX, but the drive in my retired police interceptor yesterday coming back from Ben Lomond. I always take 17 from the bay to Mt. Hermon Road to get to my destination quicker, then on the return, head back to 17, down to SC and then up 9 for the drive back. I have gone north on 9 probably 40-50 times and south about 3 times! What a fantastic little piece of road!
and @ pmccut, 84 is great as well, especially when you stop at Alice's for a sandwich in La Honda!

Please as a Subaru owner and a Motorcycle owner. Be very careful on these roads. I have lost a lot of good friends over the years.

Couldn't agree more. Safety should be everyone responsibility before anything else. Driving is a privilege, and we must treat it as such. That being said, I wish I had a nice street bike for 84. Seems like the perfect motorcycle road to me

That's a sweet ride, I personally enjoy Old Santa Cruz Highway right off of 17.

It's fantastic.

(Wait... is Highway 9 also called Old Santa Cruz Highway?)
