This road goes from here to there. It's better than a paved road because there are not cars on it. But, I mean, it's just a steep ass road with no other redeeming qualities. I mean there's a little undulation here and there - my friend cracked his frame on this road forcing a jump at 20 mph on this. Dumbest crash ever.
