Ahh, western North Carolina. Precambrian gneiss, schist, and granite folded and upended to form mountains. It's said that they were once as tall as the Rockies. Must be some great twisty roads around there. Oh, and your Gixxer looks good too.
I worked in the Arizona desert for years. Just about any road coming off the Colorado Plateau (covering parts of southern Utah, northern Arizona, western Colorado and western New Mexico) will be twisty. One of my favorite roads insnadamo said:I know where youre talking about, but I couldnt tell you what its called. I just remember the ride from phoenix to Flag can get twisty, especially up from Fountain Hills to Payson. Elevation changing twisties.
