    Nice. I wish I had a place to drive like that around here in CT.

    The tail of the dragon is awesome, the Mini club does an event there each year and they get close to 1000 cars, would love to make a trip with all the Cadillac People!!!

    Drove that route on my way home from the Corvette Museum pickup of my 2008 Corvette. Don't have anything like that in S FL.

    I'm sure you guys have some sort of winding backroads!

    This weekend was Z Days, but honestly the best time is to go with one or two cars middle of the week. No traffic, no cops.

    Bleh I couldn't live in flat-ville. I love my mountains and curvy roads.

    There are some winding roads but not 11 miles long. Up north more there are some nice roads to choose from. Believe me there will be a cop every mile if it was in CT. There is a lot of crazy people up here with fast cars. More money for the state to pick them up. There are some nice back roads around here but the pavement isn't that great. Not to mention the deer hanging out ready to jump out in front of you even in the middle of the day.

    It's on the boarder of NC and TN, mostly in TN. You should check it out on a web search, Tail of the Dragon or Deals Gap. It's something like 111 curves in 10 miles. I'm planning a trip out there in the fall (but on my bike).

    I'm not that good with metric. So triple digits is like 62 MPH, right?

    There. Saved you from sanctions for posting illegal acts OR flaunting you can afford to rent Blue Mountain.

    You weren't a moderator on FocalJet were you?

    Years ago, a long time forum member got banned for posting about something that happened while he was going over 100 on the highway. Turned out he was talking KPH, not MPH and was going less than 65 MPH and below the limit for that road. LoL

    I'm sure transam00 must have also meant KPH because no CF members would EVER break any traffic laws.
