F-- that....no way....hell no.....never would go on any one of those roads.

 
Not only do I not know what's going on, I wouldn't know what to do about it if I did.

After seeing that, I'll try to not complain so much about construction zones and pot holes.

Not as scary as those . . . except that people try to compete for record times, lol. Motorcyclists and sports car buffs, mostly. 318 curves, many of them hairpins, in just 11 miles.

I'd love to try it on that Wraith I posted in the Christmas thread, lol.

I've driven on the Taroko Gorge road in Taiwan.  It was a small car, so it didn't feel so bad, although you had to try to predict where best to pass oncoming traffic.  Some of the bus rides we took in the area were terrifying.  Thought for sure we'd become another "Bus Plunge" story in the New York Times.  Stunning scenery, though - if you dare to look out at it while driving.

The Salian highway is not quite as full on as those roads, but not far away when the rains come as there is no drainage for the whole of the country other than run off.

Some of the highways into the mountains are 4 wheel drive only, although its unbelievable to come across a Lada or Volga coming in the opposite direction when you have been struggling with a 4X4 for hours.

There are roads of death and roads of death, and that Bolivian road is way off the scale.

 

Cool thread.

I've read articles in sport bike mags about this road, serious testosterone rush, and adrenaline is brown aparently.
