I've had way too many close calls at gmr to really have fun anymore. Between riding through the snow and ice on the duc to having a friend come around a blind hairpin finding to cyclists changing a tire in the middle of the road and having to lay his bike down, to deer jumping in front of us. We should go sometime once u get a project car. maybe miles could take some pics for us?
Nope, and I think that's why I like it. Less idiots, and the drive is more of a cruise. Not to mention it's about 80 miles long. Sand Canyon is up by La Caņada. Similar to GMR, but shorter, and again, less idiots.

I'll try to resist getting a luxury car as a project, although the Merc SEC is...just...gorgeous. And if we take action pics, it's okay to be blurry, because we'd know exactly what was going on...unlike Miles's pics.

What's nice about really tight roads is that ricers know to stay away. It's easy to kill yourself if you get too cocky.

Do it! it's worth it. Did it in the roadster.


So.. the battery died in my key today for the e46.

Yes...that road has claimed the life of many E46 fender liners.

I thought the key recharged itself when you put it in the ignition...

Hopefully it really is the battery and not the transponder itself like on my E46.
