    Chicken, that pic reminds me of this road. I don't have a better pic, but it's a great ride. I stealth camped off the side of the road the night prior to this pic and weathered a horrendous thunderstorm all night. My trip out the next morning was interesting...

    Route 666 in Pennsylvania

    And it had fabulous coffee right on side of the road. I don’t recall any cars passing the whole time we were stopped.

    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

    Combe-Laval, Drôme, (Vercors) France.

    The magnificent balcony road D76 - Combe Laval. Originally carved out of the mountain between 1893 and 1896. And then widened between 1938 and 1939.

    Gorges du Nan, Vercors, France.

    Les Gorges du Nan, and yet another balcony road.
    The narrow D22, between Malleval-en-Vercors and Cognin-les-Gorges. The road was created in 1894.
    You can see the (modern) horizontal metal fencing in place to try and help prevent people and vehicles being struck by falling rocks and stones.
