    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 :D

    Sounds like Government math to me.

    2011. I ride just far enough to get the photo and then return to the store for lunch and watch "the show". I don't have this Vee anymore but it was set up pretty nice for trips.

    I normally get annoyed when people constantly quote the WHOLE message - hi res pics and all - just to comment on the comment.

    Here? I'll make an exception.
