That route works for me - I have done it a couple times (with a few variations) in the last couple weeks - the only thing I think we need to point out is highway 1A for those who haven't been on it - is not a perfect ashfault service - it has bumps, potholes, etc - but it does have curves.
 
The other thing to watch for on that highway is Cops - there was photo radar out there the other night - as well as a lot of reserve security vehicles.
 
I have no problem with the ride - I actually quite enjoy it - just a few points to consider.
