Video of a quick motorcycle ride up Buckhorn

Ran across this interesting video the other day. Highway 299 is the road from Redding to the coast. The Buckhorn Summit is characterized by some tight corners along the mountainside. This rider strapped a video camera to his bike, and went for a fast ride.

For years, I drove this road weekly. Going back to when there were one-lane bridges in Trinity County on 299. The road is much better now, but Buckhorn can be a challenge. Before you try a fast ride, just be aware that the road is particularly unforgiving. Misjudged corners can easily become fatal errors. Not only that, but you never know who, or what, you’ll find in your lane as you go round. You feel lucky?
