If you do HB, start near cathcart and then take that left after the twisties and go over the bridge. Go to the end of the road near the coffee shop, make a left and make that first right (I think it's BH). When you get to the stop light at the end of that road, make a left and then go up a little ways and make a right onto Old Owens rd. Those roads back there are clean, clear, little to no traffic, and houses are like 200 yards or more apart. Brother went out there on Sunday and had a awesome time hitting the turns and exploring those roads.

I rode it on Sunday. The north end by 522 is still full of gravel. The south end is fine.

Your buddy upgraded bikes to one good enough for Highbridge...? Did he used to ride a riding lawn mower?

Maybe I was heading south so maybe we ran it in different directions. 522 crosses the north end of high bridge btw.

rode high bridge today, still a good amount of gravel down the center of the lanes. especially in the corners. Oh, and there's a lot of illegal mud on elliott rd, in front of Bob's Corn, on the way to high bridge from the west/north end.

Lols, illegal mud is right, with a little bit of illegal manure in there as well. And then a good ol' monsoon to finish it off...

maybe that illegal water will wash off the illegal mud and illegal manure. Although, it's likely to actually cause even more illegal mud on the roads

High Bridge and Ben Howard on 10262012
I drove both of them in my Fiat 500 Sport last Friday - I needed a car because I was laying out the route for a charity ride I do in November where I need exact directions, and I wanted to check on Ben Howard for a Team Ride West ride out there in two weeks.

Both roads had an expected degree of difficulty due to wet leaves, water run off, and gravel at hairpins and driveways from careless car drivers, but the actual paved surface was so good I am not sure what paving work others were referring to.

A Fiat 500 Sport is not a motorcycle, but on a tight and winding road in the wet with gravel and leaves it is a lot of fun. Had to wash it off when I got home because it was truly filthy!

I think what you were trying to say was, if you crash your motorcycle while riding like it's a race track in someone's neighborhood, and you were upset by the expected gravel near the driveways, you were just being a typical retarded careless motorcycle statistic.

Right? That was what you were going for?

No, I do not think there is such a thing as a "typical retarded motorcycle statistic." I was comparing the condition of the road before paving (and it was worked on this summer ) to now, and trying to point out that there is ALWAYS going to be gravel on the corners of Ben Howard, and that is just the way life is, the anything to do with any repair work
