I guess it depends on the bike you are riding?
Road to heaven if I hit this at about ten o'clock in the morning.
Road to hell if I started this at eight thirty in the evening and needed to get to my campsite.
I like to think I'd plan this out and be on it at ten.
Some hairpins flow better than others....
I'm pretty sure this is the
Tian Men Shan Road, Hunan Province in China
And I'm sure it would be Biking Nirvana, providing the GF is not on the back, cause I made her sick going through the Alps, and not one of the passes!
And it doesn't really matter what bike, as long as it goes round corners, just make sure you take the centre stand off - It slows you down....
Hair pin after hairpin... start stop start stop...it would get boring after about 5 corners when you'd be screaming for some flowing runs...
Try Gorge Road or Montacute road in Adelaide. Changes in elevation and risk. different types of corners. and they are only the begining. Head out at 11.30am on a weekday and you'll be lucky to see 5 other vehicles. Going in either direction. Perfect! And of course the weather.. Well it is Australia.
I'm thinking KTM Duke with a good set of boots should do rather splendid
(Oh and I forgot, and a clean change of underwear at the end of a 'timed' decent!)
