the dragon isn't that bad, unless you consider the no talent assclown centerline crossers that flock to it.

Judging by the picture it looks to have a lot of dirt on it

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

Why are all these roads out west? (Except for the NC and WV ones)

How is I-15 scary and not 90/94?

This list was also on the Yahoo main page.

The intersection of Rt50 (cicero)and 94 is rated as one of the deadliest in the country.

We offer three kinds of service @ Resurrection
GOOD - CHEAP - FAST
You can pick any two
GOOD service CHEAP won't be FAST
GOOD service FAST won't be CHEAP
FAST service CHEAP won't be GOOD
and cold beer.

I'd love to help but I don't chase parts.
Please contact other forum members and supporters for parts.

Devils Triangle ... Right by the dragon was twice as hairy as the dragon.. the dragon is nice.. the turns are all cambered and smooth.. Devils Triangle was tighter, with stone walls for run off and tons of blind gravely switchbacks.. my ass didn't unpucker for a while

Most of these pics look like the dragon.. did a quick search for Devils Triangle
It's a great bit of road.. and it doesn't have 3 cops per corner waiting for you to go 1 over
