    straight roads are for fast bikes, curves are for fast riders.

    That ride from 19-28 past Fontana Dam to Deals Gap is definitely one of my favorite rides of all time.

      That's what all the fuss is about? It's all right I guess. I gotta get one of those little cameras so you guys can see some of what's here in Arizona. We have places with actual hairpins, 1000 foot elevation changes, gnarly rocks and a tunnel through the mountain. Nicely maintained roads too. We got trees too. The largest stand of Ponderosa Pine anywhere is up around Prescott with 2 lanes, divided, running through it as you climb from 800 feet to 4500 feet. Salt River Canyon, Devil's Canyon, hell, South Mountain Park right in downtown Phoenix has some super-tight stuff to negotiate. So many other places I know of and I'm sure there are some I don't know of. It has to be seen to believe.

        You can’t tell what it’s really like from a video. The elevation changes and the curves are completely lost in the video.

        That ride is a higher speed ride with longer sweeping curves also. There are extremely tight hairpin turns with huge elevation changes on the mountain pass roads (like the tail of the dragon). There’s a reason this place is a very popular motorcycle destination area. It’s just lost on video for the most part.

          I know the camera leaves a lot out. It's like looking at a picture of the Grand Canyon. It's just a big ass hole in the ground until you step up to the edge. Then, it makes you feel very small and insignificant.
