At a Glance
“Yreka!” – ancient Greek for “I got it!” – was famously exclaimed by the great Syracusean thinker Archimedes when the solution to a thorny arithmetical problem suddenly hit him when getting into his bath. Being a mathematician, he'd certainly appreciate the TIRES algebra that you get to immerse yourself in on this, the Klamath River basin’s second most famous DH. The western fraction of this road is between the sedate Siskiyou and Marble Mountains, so the Scenery doesn't equal the alternate Klamath ride. But it does divide nicely, gradually becoming drier as you click on the miles heading east towards the Shasta Valley. This road is not as twisty as its derivative cousin but it does have superior Pavement that permutates just fine with its invariable Engineering. Tragically, the recurring buildings do subtract from Remoteness, though Character still adds up nicely and is remarkably similar to that of DH12. And because it is a state highway, you can probably count on speed tax professors checking your speedo numbers. If you manage to get a passing grade from them, it’s mathematically certain that you'll "get it" too. And like Arch, end up a happy camper.

    'There is a perfect section of esses which is so long you almost begin to think you might get bored, except you are grinning too widely. A group of eight sportbikes passed us going upriver, followed not too long after by an LEO going very fast with lights off. His cruiser twitched a bit as he passed us, but we figure that eight was a bigger prize than two, and we saw him no longer.' --scritch

    'Decent, winding road through the mountains. Watch out for Dopey! Expect a friendly gesture if he approves.' --Shaun Gallant
