Oh yeah the good ol' Fort Ord. Nowadays just a shut down piece of government land but your right on being a awesome place to ride. Carmel Valley Rd., Hwy 25, Coalinga are some of my favorite routes......especially Coalinga. One of the fastest straights and long sweepers routes that Ive done. Smile from ear to ear after I was done! Plus dont forget that Laguna Seca is right around the corner.....phenomenal track to do some track days on. Too bad you moved away. :deathmetal:I was stationed in Monterey on Fort Ord mid 80's,used to cruise Salinas,Monterey,Carmel,Big Sur,Seaside occasionally up to San Jose....those were the days.
I have the same color g4, the '13. Got the black, too, but the '11. Blew out a bearing on it. I do the same loop I've done for years here that I did from Belmont, only 50 miles longer for a total 200 miles, about 5 days a week, weather permitting, sometimes everyday of the week.@ scout- where did you move from? Not to many white and black 4th gen zx10rs in this area so chances are if you see one rolling around its probably me. Usually out on the weekends with a couple local riding buddies hitting up some of the well known Central Cali riding roads.
Nothing gets your skills up like lots of seat time. That is a great loop, a real good mix of everything and very challenging. Especially the traffic, lane-splitting, learning to be patient.I have the same color g4, the '13. Got the black, too, but the '11. Blew out a bearing on it.

So go thru tires.
This is my loop: wats start; 1;17 to 880;237;calaveras;84;mines;hamilton;quimby;101;san juan to home
4 hours time unless traffic light. yesterday and today were in close to float zone. 17 kinda jams me up with traffic but cagers are pretty good. Been doing this loops since last Sept, which is when I got this bike delivered. I did not want the white but only thing the dealer had without abs so took and just learned to like it. Wasn't hard at all. lol
