Swiss Alps?

Nope, lookout Mountain in Golden, CO. Around 15 miles west of Denver. The road starts in Golden, and goes up 5 miles to Buffalo Bill's grave.

Here's a photo of the front tire on my old CBR, showing what that road does to tires. It's a Metzeler Sportec M1. The front always wears out before the rear, and the sides always wear out before the middle. And the only cops I ever see on that road are responding to accidents.
