Southern California has roads just like that in the Panamint mountains by Death Valley. I've been over them in jeeps. I think I would rather have been on a bike!

Last time I was there I ran into a few guys on Rokons. Out riding and camping in the back country. The perfect bike for that.  Great place to go riding, in the winter.

That looks like some hellacious fun!  There are some roads here in Colorado that are like that.  One in particular outside of Idaho Springs that I used to takes my Suzuki GS 550 enduro conversion on.  I'd pack a lunch and ride up there and eat it at this old mining camp right on the edge of a cliff.  I love those kind of rides.  Makes me want to put enduro tires on the 58 Trailblazer and REALLY blaze the trails!   ;)

A friend and I watched it, and the only thing we could do was ask:

Who built that road... and fer f*ck's sake, why?

That was a neat ride but it was on a highway.

Been there, done that. A very similar bridle path on Casper Mountain beckoned a couple of us one day when I was riding the old 250 Matchless. It wasn't as rocky as this one, but it was a lot tighter because of switchbacks every few hundred yards. It was so tight that we had to drag the bikes around the switchback corners. We made it up and back down, but I never rode that one again!
I rode some bridle paths in Griffith park one day with my ex on the SR-500. Those were a piece of cake. Fairly easy, but still fun!
