If you are racing on a closed course on Pikes Peak, you can ride 100 mph and use the WHOLE FREAKING ROAD! Check it out for some freewheeling fun.
Thanks for your reply. Yes, we are scared of heights, but we managed to ride up Mt. Evans to 14,264' twice without an issue. Once in the car (I think that I was the only driver to use lower gears on the descent, despite many signs suggesting to do so, as I smelled burnt brake pads from cars in front of me), and once on my Goldwing, several years later. Because I had more room to maneuver the Wing in my lane vs. my car, I felt safer on the Wing.It is paved all the way, but probably the scariest road I have been on. Few guardrails, and it looks like infinity off one side of the road all the way up. If you don't like heights (and I REALLY don't) think seriously. OTOH, if you make it up (I did) the view is spectacular. Now, the ride down........Oh, boy!
