Malibu is great, just depends on when you go. Those are my backyard roads. I was ditching classes almost every day back when I went to Santa Monica high school with coke cans duct taped to my knees for knee sliders almost 30 years ago. Would take of after 2nd period, ride up Fernwood, Saddle Peak, down Piuma, to La Virgenes, the PCH to Latigo, Latigo to Kanan, down the Snake continuing on to Mulholland up Cold Canyon, up Piuma, to Schuren/Saddle Peak then down Tuna (always with the engine off) then PCH back to school. Would always make it back before 5th period English class. It was like my own private race track nobody was there.
Up Latigo and up Piuma are my favorite roads period. No amount of skill makes up for knowing every turn bump and crack and dirty spot on those roads and I love the technical nature. Bike like the Ninja 1000 you can just leave it in 2nd or 3rd and it's like a big scooter. The Crest, 9 mile, even all the way out to the 33 all just way too much time knee down over 100 (if you're doing it right) and if something goes wrong it's gonna be so much worse that tucking the front end at 45 on a tight canyon. My last crash going really fast was at Fontana going over 150mph and the track was probably the only place you're gonna walk away from something like that.
