This 36 mile stretch of road is touted to be the #1 road in America for its beauty and driving. I couldn't agree more. I have driven the skyway on a R1, Harley, and in a Trans Am, all 3 experiences were great. I have been driving on it for years for leisure and entertainment. I highly recommend this stretch of highway to everyone. Plenty of pull offs to stop and take photos or take a break and chat and meet up with your group. If you are pulling a trailer you have plenty of chances on each side of the mountain before reaching the top elevation @ 5300 feet to find a pull off if your brakes get too hot. Unlike the Dragon the skyway has several straightways in it where sport bikes and get up incredible speeds. It is not recommended to be passing or not paying attention as some get up @ the 140-150 mph mark in the straights. Don't want to meet up head on at that speed so stay sharp and enjoy the ride! As always everyone be safe.
