    The Snake River and the Tetons, so it'd be US89.

    And the answer is...

    Tennessee state road 66 between Sneedville and Rogersville.
    A really fun road to travel that makes the curves of Deal's Gap pale by comparison.
    This road certainly doesn't have the number of curves that 129 has but the relatively
    few that it does have are tighter, steeper and way more crooked!

    Guessed it in post 77, but went by memory on towns name (robbinsville vs robertsville)


    And yes Visian,you missed a much better piece of pavement than 70 in that area.

    well, the ride was actually fairly easy. hint: new mexico. and if anyone reads my articles, this road was mentioned in "Shakedown, breakdown."

    clue: rider is the Veg.

    on edit: the Veg is not the subtle clue....

    That's funny. I have a picture of my GS next to that sign posted just above my computer screen. Yours is kinda hard to read, but the yellow sign warns 'HIGH CLEARANCE VEHICLES ADVISED NO SERVICES NEXT 120 MILES' Nice. My kinda road.
    That road heads north from NM35 between Gila NF and Mimbres. Spits you out near the VLA.

    wrong state... the mountains in the background are too big. think a little "north" of there.

    but it is a state highway.
