17-Mile Drive......Anyone?

Hey folks, I'm fairly new to this community so I don't know many of you here. My friends, who are also enthusiasts, and I might be planning a Sunday morning drive along the "17-Mile Drive." I have not been to this location before but I have heard that it's a blast to drive there. I've never held events like this in this in this board but if anyone is interested, please let me know. It's also a good chance for me to meet some fellow enthusiasts here in the Bay Area.

If you like driving 15mph, go for it.
  1. It's full of tourists
  2. It's a residential area
  3. Yes the roads are nice.
When you see the no motorcycles sign at the entrance gate, you can thank me for screwing over a lot of bikers. Actually, I don't know if it is still there. Back in the late eighties I used to ride an old, and very loud KZ1000 through there late at night on my way back and forth from a friends house. Shortly thereafter the no motorcycles signs went up. Doh!

There are so many great roads around the Monterey peninsula, you can use 17 mile drive as a break from everything else. If you've got a wad of cash to burn while you're in Pebble Beach, you can stop at Roys for something to eat.

Hmmmm, I don't plan on driving 15mph hahaha. After seeing the road, I had the impression that it was meant for "spirited driving." Maybe start early so we don't catch any traffic.

the 17-mile drive is made to be a slow, scenic drive. it's stop and go most of the time.

this is a slow drive road to enjoy the scenary. there are other great drivers roads in monterey county. as said before, you can use 17 mile drive as a nice cruise rather than a spirited drive.

Yeah took a drive on this road while I was breaking in the M. It's a nice drive with great views but if your thinking of driving aggressively then this isn't the road for you.

Hmmm, I guess this isn't the road for me. Can any of you suggest any stretch of road that can offer the best of both worlds? Scenic and twisty with no traffic/cops? I've been in the San Jose area for about a year so I don't know many good roads. I've been to skyline but there's always traffic there. Highway 9 is nice but the views aren't that spectacular.

Look at this thread: Best driving roads in the SF bay area?

You should also come to the dyno day this weekend in Santa Clara if you want to meet other M fanatics.
