    Exactly!

    Last week I found a road in the North Carolina mountains that is far better than the Old Murphy Road or the Dragon but I'm not telling where it is.

    I have been riding them for a few years, and I an not telling either. A section with 350 REAL turns, as compared to the GAPs 220, if you are generous (318
    ). And the roads around it have even more.

    How many driveways?
    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

    Very few. Less than the # of oncoming vehicles in your lane at the GAP

    Here is 2/3 of the ride.
