Good to see you out and about. White Oak Mountain Drive looks like a twisty ride up the mountain. Thanks for sharing.

Very twisted and hard switch backs. As you go up you canít see which way the road goes until youíre at the next turn!

It is better coming down but still very sharp.

Ah, "mystery corners"! More fun riding with an elevated pulse rate.
Lovely scenery, thanks.

We came across some mystery corners in Ireland and I snapped a photo of the warning sign. The road looked just like it and was very narrow to boot. I doubt that a full size car could navigate the turns without "borrowing" part of the other lane.

So that Irishman appearing to stagger down the road may just be because of the road ?

Lee, those foam slip on grips you gave me are working great. Really like them. Thanks again for letting me have those

A better grip means less griping.
