If a better place in the world to ride a motorcycle exists than along the Southern California coast, you'll never hear a local rider admit it. Great weather, great scenery and inviting highways make Encinitas and all of San Diego County a mecca for motorcyclists.
Although you and other riders would sometimes prefer otherwise, you have to share the pavement with motorists operating much larger vehicles. No matter how careful you may be, interactions with cars and trucks can't be avoided. When motorcycle accidents do happen, the results rarely go the rider's way.
