Used to love that road back in 2001-2003 actually all of them , Grant, Rosehill they were great, but as the area grew it got way to crowded to ride the roads that way.

This happens to me on the way to work constantly, a nice off ramp exit that's a tight left then a tight right onto the street. 75% of the time there is a line of cars in front of me....but those few times when there aren't, oh yes.

I've also heard it's hard to commute when you're just going in circles.
But that's probably just a rumor too.

My favorite curve coming home from work is the ramp from 59 south to 45 south..

Most times I get blocked by slower vehicles, but the days that I have it to myself I make that 1 pass worth it!

Nearly every time, but I try to take advantage whenever there's not someone going 10 under the speed limit right in front of me.

Off of Telge coming from Tomball if you get on grant out there, there is a couple good curves. I used to live right there in Rock Creek and used to hit those things ALL the time. In my time living there, there was 2 incidents caused by some moron trying to follow me through the turns. One was a truck and one was a car.
They tried to follow me through the turns and carry the same speed i could carry. I wasn't going hard at all, just doing a comfortable pace and they tried to follow the same speed and realized they are going to fast and mash brakes mid turn and slide off into the ditch. I pulled both of them out ( turned around, laughed at them and told them ill go grab my truck) got paid $100 by the car, and the truck guy was just embarrassed.

I feel your pain. I used to love going around the 610 curve passing by 290 as I headed to PP1. Nothing crazy but would come through at a good speed. Every now and then there would be several cars in all the lanes. I would just slump down like a kid who was told "no you can't have that candy bar" at the store.
