Now you want to talk about a tight road.... (video)

I'll show you a tight road!

DISCLAIMER: This is not a fast paced video or ride, so if hauling ass and cheating death is your thing, then this video may bore you. You've been warned! This is most definitely not a haul ass road, plus I'll fully admit that super tight and technical I'm not really that great at anyways, so I just took it slow and steady. Lots of debris on this road too, and alot of drop offs so you've gotta be real careful. This is most definitely NOT an area you'd want to go down in, especially when you're by yourself (which I was)

Anyways, was out last weekend riding with some buddies and they took us up this road. We weren't gonna go up it originally but then decided to after all once we got there. This is definitely one of the tightest, steepest roads I've been on in quite some time. Definitely a challenge even at slower speeds, between the steep grades, completely blind curves, and wet leaves and other debris in the road in the middle of a steep hairpin. Still fun though. I busted out the ol' video camera and headed back there yesterday to try it out again. This SR 1151 near Saluda, NC

Sign at the beginning... I told you it was steep. Video definitely does it no justice



This is the road on google maps. Last weekend we came at it from the north-eastern direction and it's just smooth easy sweepers for miles and miles and miles, then BAM... this

SR 1151, Saluda, NC - Google Maps

Going up



And going back down




See why I love living here?? LOL All kinds of roads like this right in my back yard, although I gotta say this one is definitely one of the tightest I've been on in some time!

Yeah, that's a tad bit tight. Closer to one lane than two...

Gawd I LOVE riding N.C and Tennesee - the best roads in N.America i.m.o (oh and P.a - and Cape Breton - and B.C) but apart from that I've heard Cali is nice....and Colorado... and New Mexico...

But no matter where you go this has got to rank as a great f*ckin road
