Well were I live there is two ways to get from my town to a big city, like Sata Rosa or Napa, there is Mt. St. Helena, or Butts Canyon road. Well I havge drivin both, but I generally drive St. Helena since its were mostly everyone drives.

Well today on my way home I decided to take Butts Canyon road home, and this was really the first time I drove it with no one in the car, like my parents or my friends. So i just had a blast. Long sweeping turns that you can take at like 70 or more. some banked turns, some crazy hairpins. It was great.
Then after you get past the windy part of the road(its about 25-30miles, accordig to my oddometer) there are hills and long staright aways, its great. I was cruising at like 85-90 for about 5 min. There are no cops on the road by the way.

Yea so i just wanted to share my great divig expirence with you guys. I loved it, the su was just right, not in your eyes, roads were pretty empty, my car was runig great, and I didnt eve nbreak loose once, i was surprised, even though I was takig turns 20 or 30 over recomended.

Sounds like a lot of fun man.

I just came home from work mad. I was on a straight empty road just about to punch it and then a damn police chopper flew over me lighting my freaking path and my car with it's uber bright reflector light thing. I was like wtf retard you could have showed up in 2 minutes not now. I guess they were searching for something as they were not high up at all.

thats swet dude. I know what you mean. cuz i Have a road like that, but there are cops and other slow ass cars. your lucky man. must have been a blessing. times like that you wish that you had nothing to worry about, cuz all you want to do is just keep driving.

its fun take 15 mph recommended turns at 55 mph (entering at 70)

CHANGE THEM NOW!!! If you don't, eventually you'l have a large sudden blowout and shit will hit the fan!

anyways, I love banked curves, you can take them 2.5X the speed limit usually with ease. Sooo much fun.
