Here's some shots of one of my favorite local rides. Old Mill Rd on the northside of the San Bernardino Mtns.

Of course the Big Daddy around here is Angeles Crest Hwy. 55 miles without an intersection to speak of at elev. up to 7900ft. I've done it with everything from painter vans to sportbikes. It's even a cool cruise in my 65 F250. No shifting required!
