Mt. Pisgah Highway. Route 151. North from the Blue Ridge Parkway in NC. Not near the death defying road that some others have posted, but better than the Tail of the Dragon.

How about this one, Historic route 66 !





Wifey, she always looks good next to a bike, and great fun on a ride !




A view of the road.





Final destination, Oatman .



05 Road King, rented off the strip in Vegas. $200.00 a day but the memories priceless ! Not to mention the look on the attendants face when we brought it back, over 1200 miles in 3 days ! Apparently most people only ride them up and down the strip a few times !

Short but sweet. North of Sister Bay Wisconsin. All of the rest of the road around there was mostly straight and I didn't see any reason this stretch shouldn't have been straight. Well, other than it would be boring to ride.

Yep, Shafer Trail Road. Nearby is Potash Road and the White Rim Trail.

Here's another view of Shafer Road. Could have spent weeks riding around there.
