Cool Angeles Crest Hwy So. Cal.

Angeles Crest Hwy., and itís tributaries including the Upper Tuhunga Canyon Rd., more affectionately known as Nine Mile, to us CA locals, always makes my heart beat with a fervor that is unmatched, excluding some of the more incredible sexual adventures of my youth. I take great pleasure at the expressions on the faces of those who experience this adventure for the first time. Through deserts and mountain canyons, this E-ticket ride will satisfy the most avid thrill-seeking sport bike rider with itís abundance of twisties and switch backs; and itís sure to enthrall the curser crowd with its incredibly majestic scenery. The lack of significant four-wheeled traffic greatly increases the pleasure of this, my favorite adventure spot.

All Hail Great Surgeons and Gear Manufactures!

... and a stop at Newcomb's Ranch.

Road that with R6Steve last summer, and a few more times myself. Very nice road.

Another specific couple of roads I liked were 142? heading south out of Grand Junction Colorado and 12 heading down towards Bryce and Zion Parks in Utah. In early June, those roads were deserted and could be run at obscenely fun speeds.

If you're ever out this way, take a Sunday West Virginia ride with us. 500 miles+/- of solid twisties that'll knock your socks off!

Do you ride it often? I rode the crest once recently down to the 210 and came back up on the freeway. I have not taken the other roads that break off from it lately.

Which way do you start from?

I am home from Iraq for R&R 14 days. I get back on the 9th of Sep. If any one is hitting up the Crest let me know.
