That dang logarithmic spiral curve somewhere on dewatto-tahuya that makes you keep slowing down until you are doing a delicate balancing act while still cornering at the end of it.

Personally, I think a public bathroom is not the place for any sex, including unisex.

THis section.




Landstar Ranger is a "Holishit!" intersection right at the outlet of the first good right, heading southwest, because once in twenty times there is an old lady pulling out VERY.SLOWLY across both lanes and you can't see that far ahead. But the turn and setup for the next left is so sweet you, like, HAVE TO hit it hard.

Oh, and sometimes there's illegal gravel.

It's my favorite R-L transition.

I've seen a couple riders in the guard rail here. s you come down the hill
the corner tightens up right as the guard rail comes into view. There is another blind corner just north of here that I've also seen a few riders blow. luckily never with oncoming.

This corner and the one just after it heading north. I haven't ridden that road in years but it never ceased to scare the shit out of me every time.

Forgot to mention that this is the price I paid for a bad line in the rain on T4 at PIR. I ran wider than I normally do and high sided and that's about all I remember

So just did Windy Ridge. Going up, you clear from the forest and get out into the “blast zone”. There are these 20mph right hand turns where I always have to concentrate looking thru the corner and have these heebiejeepie feelings of flying off into the barren baby tree landscape. Because there’s often gravel and stuff and I always recall a pucker moment from years ago doing that run on a gsxr750 in one of those corners that have gravel and gave me a fixation moment where I found god and had to consciously look where I wanted to go.

It will probably be that kind of corner someday. My focus will be “off” due to dehydration, hunger or some such distraction and.... weeeee!!!! oh fuck...
