Glad for you my man, that's quite an epic trip.
I've included my favorite way of getting from LA to SF area w/o hitting freeways. It's estimated hwy Big Sur area will be closed until next yr. Pay special attention to the hwy 229 section, I zoomed into it on the map. The locals here call it Rossi's driveway, good luck keeping the front end down. The rest is awesome too! In nor cal, hwy 36 is infamous and cannot be missed but its pure East to West. Another great and I mean GREAT option is hwy 96. Going straight up hwy 1 is OK, but one tires of ocean views after a while. Try to incorporate crisscrossing mountain ranges on the way up and watch out for cops on the hwy1.
Hwy 1 in Oregon btwn port orford and florence is meh... ur far from the ocean, the road is straight,,, head inland.
I think ur wasting space bringing motor oil and a bike cover, ppl generally steal yamazuki's, parking right by the front door of the hotel is best. The coast can be cold, wet and fogged in until 11am, so as a general rule try to wake up inland (warm and dry) and by noonish (when temps get HOT) make ur way to the coast and enjoy the perfect weather.
Hit me up if u like, if you pass thru on a weekend I could ride a ways with you too.
