Just thought I'd invite one and all to come to my backyard and check out some of the most scenic riding around. If you come to to southern alberta, give me a shout, I'd be happy to show you around.:rotfl

No I have'nt, although I've heard from people who have ridden it that it's one hell of a crazy ride. Sounds like the law around there is really tighting the noose around there!.

U ever ride in straight lines for miles and miles and miles? come to kentucky&ohio
Hey now! Go 30-45 minutes North East of me in Ohio and you'll see some real twisties. Not like the dragon obviously but they are there you just need to know where to look:thumbup My twisty I ride close to me is 45 curves in about 10 miles...I'm not talkin about just sweepers. There are some sweet downhill 25mph S curves and sweeping elevation changes...a couple of 90 degree curves...the whole road is 40mph because there are alot of blind corners and its mostly woods. It's scary driving my truck through there during the day because you can't see around half the curves and the road is narrower then most. The only downfall is theres alot of houses which makes it dangerous. My buddy wrecked last year when a car pulled out while he was coming through a turn. Twisties are in Ohio trust me:)

yeah, if you go towards virginia it gets twisty as hell, but by no means is it safe, lots of logging trucks and coal trucks travel those roads consistantly and use up both lanes.

I agree riding in the city,eh! not so much fun. Hitting the highway, going towards the mountains and such, ya that gets the heart pumping.
