We have a few here too. One in particular has seamless new pavement, no tourist-idiot-squid culture on the scale of the 129 and big trucks are BANNED.

A very helpful woman in a Grand Cherokee we talked to while deciding which way to go next steered us that way. Before that it was some guy walking his dog on a gravel road. That is why we don't carry GPS. Getting lost and asking for help is how you find where the locals ride. That ride was, God help me, a 30th reunion of our first upstate SC ride together for a bunch of old friends. If we all manage to get together agian next year you might be getting a PM from me.

BTW, we liked your rock.



Also nice to get back down to upstate SC for what I think of as BBQ, too.

Izzat up the hill from Highlands? There is a similar big slab of rock there from which you look down on the town.

Cheers,

Before Mitt shuts down Sesame Street, better turn it on and watch the "Count". 318 my a$$, 220 maybe.

The Drives are a valid point, but virtually NO traffic and NO cops on roads that are just as twisty, more than offset that fact. But I do know of a 10 mile section that has just one or 2 drives at best only 1 side road that I recall and NO traffic.

We found one road that was six or seven miles of nothing but turns then an eyeblink sized berg followed by another five or six miles of empty twisty road. Which was a nice warm up for the rest of the day spent exploring. Since we ride dual sports we only wanted half asphalt anyway.

But the best part was that I would be surprised if we passed a dozen cars all day on pavement. On gravel and two track roads we passed on Jeep, one pedestrian and one dog. The two people were very helpful in getting us even more lost. The golden retriever just thought the bikes were cool.

We took a late afternoon break here after a bunch of gravel roads before we started dead reckoning our way back towards the truck along fun and nearly deserted highways.

It is not. This one is ~20 miles northeast of Highlands (as the crow flies). I know the one you speak of though.

Damn, I thought we were on virgin ground.

Great spot to stop for a few minutes off the bike.

Jesus.

You whine about me trolling, and here you are being a prick in a nonbasement thread with a half assed threat.

Grow the fuck up.

So if your hypothetical "those" admit they were wrong..... can they call it a speed trap?
