This last Sunday 27 March, I went and scouted out Latigo Canyon Road in my car because I've heard that it's quite a tightie. And it was quite a tightie. I am going to ride it this weekend coming up and it should be pretty fun. Not as much moto traffic as Muholland Hwy because in my humble opinion, it's more challenging and longer of a ride (or at least it seems like the twisties go on forever!!!). Lots of tight curves, lots of whoopdedoos, decreasing radius 90-degree turns, all in all, a very demanding ride. There were quite a few sports cars out there: A bunch of Porsche 911 (turbo and regular flavor), Boxster, Honda S2000, a couple of Lotus Elises, three BMW Z4s (including mine), and a bunch of modified Mini Coopers. But I digress. So, there I was, running down Latigo Canyon Road at a pretty good pace in my Z and I saw a group of crotch rockets (CBR1000s, R1s, Gixxers and one lone Hayabusa) approaching from behind, so I slowed down and let them pass then I followed them down. These riders were quite good, entering the corners silky smooth at pretty darn high speeds (my car was averaging about 40+MPH in these tight corners) and just the way they handle the bikes, it's a beautiful scene to behold. It's also a good thing that traffic was non-existent because I was scared to push my car much faster fearing to run slightly wide and clip a motorcyclist coming up the hill. At the end of the run, I went up to the riders and when they popped off their helmets, they were all in their early to mid-fifties. BadASS!!! I didn't think that the Hayabusa would handle so well because it's a heavy and long bike, but that old pop made it dance like a ballerina. Skills and experiences, baby ^c I'm gonna ride this road but I think that I'll stick to the speed limits. ;J Others will ask why I don't have objections with people riding crazily out here while I was so vehemently opposed to stupid street ridings. Out here, everybody knows the name of the game. You don't have to worry about soccer mom broadsiding you or drunkards pulling out in front of you, or running into children crossing the street. Here is where you do your speed runs and your wheelies/stoppies.
