NER Notes

One of the most famous motorcycling roads in the country. 318 curves in 11 miles. This is a riding mecca and can get crowded, so best time for riding it without the crowds is off-season and/or during the week, early in the morning.

Pro photographers stake out some of the curves to get your photo, which you can later order online for a memento.
