What are your favorite windy roads to drive on?

Hwy 68west, Hwy 1, Mount Hamilton drive, Hwy 9, Hwy 154 to Santa Barbara, The windy road from San Diego to Julian

What kind of car(s), motorcycle(s) do you drive/ride? (note: we don't discriminate against any kind of vehicle. Bring what you brought! (as long as it's safe) )

Right now I drive a mid-engined Pontiac Fiero. (Sometimes known as the poor man's Ferrari, or a ball of Fire, depending on who you ask.) It's GM's Red-headed step child. Before this I've often drove a MINI Cooper S, which is basically a go kart with a license plate. (well this side of a Lotus Elise) I've also driven too many cars to count from mini vans to exotics, and I found many cars have thir own distinct personality. If someone asks me what's the most fun car with the greatest price-to-fun ratio, the answer would be Mazda Miata. (I venture the Scion FR-S, Subaru BRZ will soon join ranks.) Before this I've owned a Mazda 626 ES V6 (which I later found out was a "kissing cousin" of the Ford Probe, but with a 4 door sedan body.)

What is your driving skill level? Did you attend any driving/racing schools? If so, which one(s)? (Note: while we don't require prior attendance, we strongly encourage/recommend it as it'll make you a better and safer driver/rider)

I'd like to say I know enough about driving "to be dangerous". I've done several track days, track day schools (Hooked On Driving, Mazda, GM, T.E.A.M. Racing). Later I've learned (the hard way. R.I.P. Mazda 626) that track day's don't teach you what to do, when "things go wrong". So I've added driving clinics by Hooked on Driving, and Skip Barber High Performance Driving school. Lately I've enjoyed rally type driving on dirt roads, so I figure I'll add a Rally driving school to learn additional skill, so in May I'm doing Dirtfish Rally School up in Washington State.

How would you like to participate in the planning/group activities to make this a better experience for everyone?

I'm still new to the Bay Area but I love driving windy roads, and I love to put together fun day trips, which don't require months of planning.

How did you find out about this group?

I started it. ;)
