The best one of those I've seen is at the entrance to the Lolo Highway (eastbound or westbound).......says caution, curvy road next 99 miles. Years ago Montana didn't have any posted speed limits and a large portion of that road is in Montana and the rest is in Idaho. Two hours of curves and unlimited speed...........what more could you ask for?

FIRST time I rode in Montana was '63, on the return from riding to Eureka, CA from Alberta. We came into it from Washington, I was 'racing a thunderstorm' so heading NE at about 80 mph when I had a police car go by going SW. I nearly 'crapped myself', expecting him to do a 180 and give me a ticket, but it didn't happen. Later on I found out about the "no-speed-limit".

Another 'fun-time' was around '95 when I took my Taurus SHO down for a visit. I recall being in CRUISE-CONTROL at 100+ mph for several hours on an interstate.

We have this one down in Tennesse, where we spend time in the summer, as you drive up McCloud Mountain. View at the top is out of this world....

I don't believe that we have one of those signs in the entire state of Texas

Our curve signs tend to have warnings that "X" motorcycle accidents have occured in the past year over the next "X" miles. I guess we just don't get enough practice at deviating from a straight line

The 130 is on my bucket list. Also Mt. Lick observatory.

How much traffic does that road see?

I think I saw 3 cars from Patterson to the observatory, then 2 or 3 bikes and a couple more cars until I was a lot closer to the bay area. After that there were dump trucks and pickups with trailers and stuff.
