As anyone who has ridden this road knows. Its extremely technical, and needs to be thought-out before you take off like a head-less chicken, thinking that you are Gods gift to motorcycling. It takes extremely good observation and positioning skills, and a lot of knowing your own limitations, and your machines. If you ride with a group, it can be a rewarding blat, and there is definetly a feel-good factor at the end, especially if you have the confidence to go via the Torr head route, which is NOT! for the faint hearted! Ride the road that i believe is probably the most technical in the U.K. A good Enhanced Advanced ride: If you dare be that progressive.
This Antrim Coast Road or the A.2. does exist, as we took 21 people over it in the summer, and also the PSNI used to train their pursuit car and motorcyclists along it at; I know this, because thats were i got my instructors certificate..eventually! ha! ha! (So it is there.)
