17 doesnt count because theres a ton of traffic and cops.

thats a pretty nice long one. my friends and i were thinking of doing hwy 84 (west of skyline) to hwy 1. the speed limit is 45 there, but the turns are 15.

Take 101 north till you hit Fort Bragg Rd Its 30-45 min streach from 101 to Fort Bragg, Its got turn off lanes for slow drivers Its a drifters paradise, cops rare after 1am absolute no traffic at night. I got the best thrills out of my 6 on that road this summer.

did hwy 84. man was it fun. a little too much traffic on a sunday morning tho. better to do it at night. the car feels very neutral thru the turns. the legacy gt was understeering and the 330i fell way behind. cant wait to do it again. i recommend u guys try it. the first half has sharp turns, the second half has high speed curves. its about a 17 mile run.

who said anything about speeding? the speed limit is 45 mostly, 55 towards hwy 1. the turn recommendations are 15-20mph. going 45-55 through those is still obeying the law. :)

Any country road in sonoma county especialy around geyserville also know as drivers paridise, my private stomping ground. Until my dads job moved my family up to coastal oregon where the fastest you can go is 60mph on 101 unless the road is crowded which it always is. A word of advice if you do decide to come up to geyserville( which will be the best decision you will ever make ) and drive on Dry Creek road : DO NOT go during the day there is at least 50 bicycles on all the country roads( dam rich people ) also watch out fo the Lambos, Enzos, Aston Martins, Jags, BMWs( again dam rich people ) and any other luxoriy car I forgot to mention. Skag Springs road: follow dry creek rd up lake sonoma and make a right .The road is a drifters wet dream, it is the only road to scare the crap out of me(and I didn't even break the speed limit). Trust me after my friend and I did 90 on Dry Creek it takes alot to scare the crap out of me.

Anybody who loves wine and is willing to off the beaten path for it knows about Geyserville. I love wine and those roads, just not at the some time.
