112 is a great road, just watch that odd intersection near the rock house, and the spring in the curve.

it aint too bad..coming in from the north to that area, it is a down hill approach with a sharp curve at the bottom so watch your speed or you will end up in the yard of the rock house as it's right there !

the curve is the easy part, check out the google maps street view, and sat view of that intersection..

lots of traffic!

And there is one with a too tight chain. Very hard on the sprockets and countershaft seal. The chain on Stuckin's XR4 is just about perfect.
