After having had a bit of fun this afternoon, I'd like to know which kind of road the average a.netter prefers for some "recreational" driving:

A



or

B?



B for me, all the way!

"A............................dont ask why"

probably because you're already sick from what you've seen in the other thread...  Laugh out loud


In case it has something to do with a former signature of yours, I'm sorry.

I think B, providing there are no idiot Tail-gaters trying to ram you off the road and over-take on blind bends thus carving you up.

Where's the nearest airport?

Ooooooooohhhhh. "B" definitely.
That looks like you could drive nice and slow and appreciate the view.
The other one is gorgeous too but I don't think I would enjoy zipping past all the scenery. Especially if I am not familiar with those roads. I want to look at things!
Wish we had any roads like either of those in Florida  Smile

Aloges, it does not look like Brazil, is it ?

Oh, it sure isn't Brazil. I'm German and changed my 'lil flag to the Brazilian one after a rather strong flashback of my year there.

Besides that, who said you can't drive a bit faster than normal on B, provided you're alone and know your car?

Edit: SWA TPA, those shots are not from my area, but there are roads very much like these near here. I'm sure everyone is able to find something like B in their area, you just need to leave the common tracks and drive for the sake of it.

(Assuming 'b' is a picture of a winding road - it wasn't showing when I looked):

All American a.netters will say 'a', all Europeans will say 'b'.

Why? 'Cos the US can only build cars that go fast in a straight line, they usually corner like a canoe on ice. Take for example the Dodge Charger, outrageously powerful but as soon as you try and change directions it all goes to sh1t.

European sports cars are fast in a straight line and even faster round corners.

I'll go for B and buck the prediction of Bristolflyer. I prefer country roads for aimless driving, but freeways if I have somewhere to go.

I'll take B.. unfortunantly since I am in south Texas, we pretty much only have A..

I can set the cruise and not touch it for 3 hours on most road trips around here

I'll also go for B, for one to throw Bristolflyer's idiotic and nationalistic ASSumption out the window, and for another because I love the peace and serenity in driving winding country roads.

I'll take 'B'. Simply because if there is too much of 'A', I fall asleep behind the wheel..


Caution wake turbulence, you are following a heavy jet.

B- much more fun. Throw in more hills and bigger twists (a'la Pittsburgh) and I'm even happier.

A, it just feels better  Big grin I don't know, everytime I travel a road like B, it always seems to be pissing down with rain and it gets the cra real dirty, as A does not.
