I found some I found some !!!!

I have a VERY hard time finding over 200 corners when I run the GAP, or look at the videos, which means someone stole at least 118 of them. But I think I found the answer, in the picture below there are 3-4 of the illusive corners right there in the double yellow!!!!

Every time Bubba, the double yellow vendor of choice, took a swig of his Bush Light and weaved down the road, it counted as a turn!!!

Not for the first timers and flat landers.


Btw: Pete was a Mopar man, hence the 318 curves marketing.

Semantics...........

Technically all of the people below have curves, but some are just not my cup of tea.

318 curves/corners was dreamed up as a marketing tool, or just counted from someone seeing double after drinking white lightning, plain and simple, like I said 220 at most.

Decreasing/increasing radius curves were counted as more than one turn. AS was stated online somewhere, anytime there was an input to the handlebars, that was a curve. I wish I could remember where I saw that.

If that is the case, I know a section with 600 turns in 17 miles (359 legit corners), with NO cops, NO trafic, and NO lowered speed limit

Sounds like Government math to me.
