Plans for riding out to Santa Barbara starting out east of the 57 / 210 with stops along the way+an overnight stay. I'd like to hear from all who have made the trek from any where in SoCal. Like to hear experiences/thoughts etc.

IMO it's better to take your bike on the train to Santa Barbara and then ride south: you're riding on the more scenic (and IMO safer) ocean side of the road, and you're more likely to have a tailwind.
I've made this trip three times. And once from Paso Robles. Sorry my link below no longer has the pictures, but it's a majestic ride. Makes me patriotic about California.
