    Nice! I was on 666 for a bit myself this past trip.
    Last year I was blocked by a downed tree (had to turn around in fact) when taking the Blue Ridge Parkway down to the Tail of the Dragon. I had several days of heavy rain. Good thing neither of us were clobbered by falling trees!

    Don’t I know it. It was a picture perfect day with little traffic on an unfamiliar road with temps around 70°. I was tempted to stop and get some non-gopro shots, but I was just too dialed in, and being on a new steed didn’t help.

    One of my favorite roads: Oregon's McKenzie Pass highway. I took the two road photos Sunday while in motion on my bicycle, approaching the pass. The other is a view from the pass.

    If that doesn't make ya want to go "off-road" what will? :thumb

    Like a dummy I rode into the Valley of the Gods on my Super Hawk with no extra gas, not much water, no repair kit and no first aid. Not smart ... but I'll never forget it. :smile6

    Burr Trail from Boulder City Utah going east and down the switchbacks into Capitol Reef national park. The first 50 miles are paved and look like this.

    The Hahntennjoch Pass in Austria, between Elmen and Imst. Today July 4th. (Congratulations USA). I had never heard about this pass until I looked at the map a few days ago. Summit at around 1900 meters. Narrow, twisty roads. A pure delight!
