    Not exactly a hairpin, but close. This is somewhere on CA 190 heading from Springville toward Camp Wilson. A great ride if you're near Sequoia National Park, BTW!

    Pigtail on Iron Mountain Road in the Black Hills. Disregard the road that I was standing on to take the shot, that's just a service road.

    You're on the Passo di Gavia, south ramp. Passo del Tonale is at the far end in the valley below and just to the east...does that sound familiar?

    Oh you Lucky nan, yes I'm pretty sure that is the area.

    No wonder so many great motorcyclist come out of those mountains.. :ricky:ricky:ricky

    Global do you have any trip reports on that area...!?!?

    I can not wait for the day of my return, those roads are the closest thing to a "Bobsled" track I have ever carve.
