    Probably not paved, judging by these Panoramio street level pictures.

    How about this... Right here in the US. Posted speed limit ranges from 55 (low) to 70 (high) - if you dare...

    (click here for oversize version)

    Google Maps link here. Follow the road off the upper right of the map for a few screens worth. There's also this one (relatively) near the first one.

    Speaking of challenging roads, anybody see last night's Top Gear America? I was saying to myself "wimps - I did something like that in an Atom" as I was watching it. Look at the directions between waypoints 2 and 3 on this map. I actually looked at that area in Google Maps after watching TGUSA, and they don't show it as a mapped road at all, so no chance of a StreetView for it.

    Yeah, this is all I got. Atom speed limits are probably between 30 and 100 mph (traffic and LEOs permitting). 3200' in 14 short miles.



    Also fwiw the AAchat uploader castrating the image size isn't very nice.
