Has Law Enforcement been cracking down on motorcyclists out there lately? Because the few times I've been through there, LEO presence was non-existent. There's pictures in the store on the southern side showing cop cars down ravines from trying to catch moto scofflaws...

That said, I bet it's a total blast going through all those corners on a bicycle.

We used to ride up there years ago, and it was a blast. The speed limit was 55 mph, so getting a speeding ticket was pretty difficult, even on a motorcycle. But I quit going years ago. It wasn't any fun dodging the idiot bikers and redneck sheriffs. They were everywhere.

There are other stretches of road up near there that are just as good and not nearly as famous.
