At a Glance
Mosquitoes have been a growing concern lately. But you’d never think Northern California’s most remote motorcycle road could be a breeding ground for an outbreak of the West Nile Speed Tax Virus. But despite its high Remoteness, a silent killer lurks among the endless S-curves that buzz up and down the rocky ridges and swarm through the thickly treed canyons of Tahoe National Forest. Even though the Pavement and Engineering are well above average for a Forest Service Road, so many squids have left their sneakered and t-shirted carcasses on this famous DH that during prime feeding periods, the CHP has air-assisted speed tax collectors hiding in the fetid swamps, hungry to suck the blood out of any motorcyclist daring to exceed the 40-mph (60-kmh) speed limit. So you might want to wave down a fellow rider (or in a pinch, a pyloneer) returning on this amazing dead-ender to see if anyone’s been stung recently. If so, you’ll just have to turn on the radar repellent and hope Culex errati taxus is too busy sucking on a big, tasty SUV to off you.
