It's only briefly mentioned in there - but for us San Diego guys, Highland Valley Rd off of Palomar (at the 15) kicks ass!!! If you've never driven it you need to go out tomorow and make the run - it can be a quick 20-30 minute trip, or an all day thing if you keep on going al the way out to Palomar.

Look out for crazy bikers and cars that don't know how to stay in a lane though! I swear some biker was layed over right on the divider, his helmet must have missed my mirror by no more than a foot...

im sure it isnt mentioned but the 14fwy leading up to the antelope valley from the 5fwy is great when there's no traffic...uphill most of the way with lots and lots of curves...my se wasn't the fastest going up but alot of others dont hang in the curves for very long

coming down is fun but more scary...u can hit 90-100 easy with lots of curves and chp

Busy in the summer, thus not always great for driving fast, but the view sure is great on Hwy 1:

I just got home from a great drive in San Diego. Take Hwy 94 East from Rancho San Diego and go all the way out to Potero near the Border across from Tecate. Also Hwy 78 from Escondido all the way up to Julian and South to Cuyamaca is another of my favorites.

I drive that freeway every day. Too many CHP and not all that fun. Boquet Canyon between Santa Clarita and Antelope Valley is much more entertaining. You'll gain 10 pounds of muscle on your left leg too.

The only problem with Bouquet now is more cops than ever since so many people moved up here. I'm personally a fan of the 210 and the 118, at the right times. Zoom zoom
