    On dragon pc cropped.jpg On the High Speed Racing Edition '97 Honda PC800, (The High Speed Racing Edition differs from stock by the addition of the HRC sticker) This is a nerdy motorcycle. Its the only windshield bike I own, but it is a total hoot in the twisties.

    Not my bikes but I took these pics on a road that used to be the site of an SCCA hillclimb.

    So what was this road? I found this description while researching the SCCA races on this road:

    "Crow Mountain Hill Climb serves up a challenging 1.85 mile uphill course with a 720 foot elevation change featuring 7 hairpin switchbacks nestled between a ¼ mile twisty drag race to the first turn, a ½ mile section with 3 separate “S” features, some 1/8 mile sprints, and a 6/10 mile high speed curved section with two blind left-handers. The course is fully lined with ditches, granite rock faces, and large trees which offer no margin for error. Most drivers say it was the fastest and scariest two minutes of their life."

    The first time I rode that road, I wondered why there was a line across with the word ' start ' on it. I, too, looked up the race. Would have been fun to watch. It does have some very sharp turns with no room for error.
