Thumbs up

Giants Despair is a mountain in Wilkes Barre, Pa.. Turns ranging from 10mph hair pins to 105mph "S" turns.. It's the perfect road.. Every year they have the "Giants Despair Hill Climb" race.. Everything from Pan cars to mustangs and camaros.. You just need to watch yourself on this road cause one side is a cliff with a 40 to 70 foot drop and the other is a cliff wall.. Very few cars and hardly ever any cops.. No side roads or hidden drive ways for cars to pop out of...

Talking Must Agree !

I'm from that area as well and MAN , great road ! Just wish I had a bike when I was still in Pa. Live in Cali now, won't EVER give this riding weather up ! But lived 10 minutes away from there and my g/f lived even closer ! Did MANY runs on that road !
