Most of the people pulling trailers and/or driving monster RV's, seem to be totally against travelling at a safe speed - especially going down the Cuesta Grade (a redundant name if you speak Spanish!). Because of this there are generally several horrific mishaps a year involving them, but it never seems to cause anyone to to slow down. 75 MPH going down a grade while pulling a trailer is not a brilliant plan! Remember when 45 was the limit?
Yep.I live right on the SC/NC state line off of I-26.The gateway to the western NC mountains.People pulling travel trailers convoy through here by the dozens.I ride an adventure touring motorcycle most all the time,a small one at that.I have learned when,where,and what to avoid to keep from being caught in the middle of the carnage.
