If I had enough money, I'd move to the Bay Area in Northern California. To the North you have the coast breaking up until you get to Vancouver with lots of isnlands and ferries. Watching otters play is the best. Salmon jerky in Oregon, Seattle is gorgeous, Redawoods that are like sitting in a cathedral, and varied roads from mountains to seahore.
Plus, there is a huge vintage snene all the way up the coast, especially in San Francisco and Seattle. Highest cioncentrations of good restaurants, bars and coffee, too.
To the South it gets warme and there's more mountains, Venice Beach, movie stars, desert, etc.
Or- Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia are all in the mountains and a whole new culture. Asheville is a concentration of art and craft, and believe it or not- motorcycle things. Lots of people retiring here, actually- but please don't bring your Northern big city attitudes with you. People who carve a hunk out of a mountain and build a trophy home are hated by natives because we want to see the damn mountain- not your house. Plus, it creates more run-off below that the city council pretends your engineer will prevent but never does.
Otherwise, there is a lot of outdoor activities and sports, art, food (just different), and live musoc- some of the best "pickin'" you can imagine.
Motorcycle-wise, there's everything from Jamie James to vintage BMW shops. Lots of DP places to ride, and even the freeways aren't too bad (except around Charlotte and Atlanta)
