    we have so many better roads than Mulholland. The twisty section is only a couple miles long. And the section you see on the videos on youtube is literally about a half mile in length.

    everyone just goes up, turns around and comes back down..... repeat, repeat, repeat.... then something stupid happens.

    the mulholland riders guy named rnickymouse on instagram and youtube filmed us.

    for those of you who think you'll die without going to ride mulholland, don't lose too much sleep over it. It's a typical SoCal hollywood illusion (delusion).

    The area below on the map shows you the route that everyone rides, and it's literally 1/4 mile long. Its the section between the two red dots and red arrows I put on there... Up, down, up, down. People just ride it back and forth about 6 times then they park and watch everyone else do it.

    Its really congested and a little on the dangerous side with all sorts of would-be squids and fame seekers who just want to hit that one corner and be on camera.

    Powerhouse, tollhouse, auberry. Our roads smoke this one.

    Looking at the map, you would of felt "CHEATED" from the hype! The Little Dragon looks better with far less traffic...

    we met that rnickey mouse dude, and also the rockstore photo guy. THey are both pretty cool. While we were there a cop stopped right in the apex of that corner and just sat there for about 5 minutes. nobody could ride or do anything .


    there's always wrecks up there too. cars going over the edge. drunk idiots at night mostly

    in the video we look incredibly lame and slow, and that's because we were. first time up on a new road, I wasn't about to drop my new RG500 on the hill just for the cameras. Leave that to the tentacle boys....

    Ha so funny. 10 seconds of fame..... guess my son and I are now "mulholland riders". conjures up images of guys riding along with clint eastwood with a 6 shooter on the hip. It was fun seeing the whole circus. Kinda glad it was a low turnout day, there are so many people watching everything that you do it can really mess up your riding focus and you then bite the big one on that turn.
