Post 1 updated with (almost) everything mentioned so far. I'm bored and sick today. No more updates to that post are promised

Also this makes me really want to go riding.

This thread is giving me major ride wood. So many roads I haven't yet traveled, even in Northern California alone.

Hairiest road I've encountered lately: Baja, Mexico, the dirt road off Mex 2-D on the way into Guadalupe Canyon. Rock gardens, water crossing, small steep uphills and downhills, and that section with the 6" deep sand and cholla cactus lining both sides to catch you if you go down...and this year that road was in great shape, apparently. If I had more skill in dirt, no problem, but this was a learning experience! Being alone, too, and knowing that I couldn't go down (I was on my way to get medical help for my buddy, who had gone down and gotten hurt a few miles back) surely added some spice, too.

Can it get anymore challenging than mines rd. I'm watching a YouTube vid of this 250 vs R6, as we speak and I'm like wow. Outfuckingstanding you two. I've never been on mines rd. It looks like I've got a lot of research on my hands here. And if that means going out there slow as a turtle on my own to learn the turns so be it.

Edit, it may not be mines rd. lol. Just looked at the title. The search did bring this vid out so that is why I thought the way I did.

Fuck but a good vid nonetheless. Talk bout adrenaline rush on a couch. I feel like riding out right now.

Searched entry: barf mines rd

Imma throw two of my more recent favs out here that aren't so close to home.
Before that tho, I'm gonna have to say Skaggs-all of it- is definately still near the top although not as seemingly epic as it was when empty and not as well kept more than a decade ago.
Hwy 155 from Glennville to Wafford heights, never ending switchbacks!
Hwy 168(#1 in my book) E from Big Pine all the way to 266?, then right, where you can avg. 150+ all the way to Hwy 95 in Nevada.
Don't forget to turn left at the top of the White mountain range(11,000ft.) and visit the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest!
Bring big power and good tires-Most Epic!

Oh I know White mountain and the Bristlecones. 168 is pretty awesome.
Camping at 11,000 feet. Bring Whiskey and a lot of layers. Nothing to burn up there, and it's effin COLD.


The ride back down on Labor Day




Bristle Cones!



I'll add these roads to the first post

Let me know when you get out there. I was sick this weekend, and took the time to get my bike back in order. I completely understand.

I think Kyle customized his D675 on that turn.

Also I dun haz some good friends who live on Brandscomb. That road is fun. Also, you do not want to hike away from the road on those roads.

Did you ride down Silver Canyon Road to Bishop? I have driven it twice but not yet on a bike. Will be doing this in June 2013!!!!! I have a vid of it from the hood of my truck last July. Slow drive...LOL

We skipped that, but I was drooling at the turn off. One of the guys had a rented bike with no crash bars and was feeling a bit skittish.

I'll be back up that way. They open the observation station twice a year and you can get higher up the mountain than usual. The trip was fun so I may do a repeat this year. Post that vid

Agree with the Banjoboy. Leesville/Ladoga is absolute shit. Rode it last year and it's as close to off road as you can get on a paved surface. It's tight like Mt Hamilton but 4x as long and the whole thing is full of cracks and pot holes. Actually some pretty nice views along the road though.
