At a Glance
Pour yourself a smooth blend of Pavement,
Engineering and Remoteness. The only rough edges to this DH’s
Character are the heavy traffic that bog it down and extra-wide
passing lanes that straighten it out as it noses through the
pure forest and rock landscape. The longest straight shot out of
Shasta is a particularly hard to swallow, even though it
provides a long, scenic view over Whiskeytown Lake. The western
third shows reasonable complexity as it sweeps steadily through
refined, but watered-down curves off the Buckhorn Summit. Yet
connoisseurs will find it’s the middle section that will make or
break this offering. If you catch it when the pylons are bumper
to bumper sticker, it can be more frustrating than a bartender
putting ice in your Balvenie. But if you can savor the tight,
peaty, well-banked esses on the climb up the summit without
being cut off, it’s a ride that matches up with the finest
single malts. Now, if only you could bottle and sell it.

'The ends are average. The middle is outstanding with sweepers and tight twisties. Well worth the time. ' --Ron Leonard
'Awesome vidoe clip! The book is fantastic and I like seeing the video along with the written At a Glance and mile-by-mile On The Road descriptions from the book because we just bought a Harley and have no clue where to ride (but want to "Ride like a local"!) Thanks to you, we now have GREAT tools and information for road trips.
