    It's MPH.

    Slow or not, that mountain had already claimed 3 lives the year I made that video. There's absolutely no room for error on either side. I believe I stayed in 3rd gear for it, plenty fast enough for me.

    You're more than welcome to come ride it faster if you want, I know others that have.........I don't really want to unless I would have to for some strange reason.

    yeah I dunno if the framerate of the camera was fast or not, but that bike sure was flying across that mountain. It has claimed several lives. I know there are only 2 spots on the mountain that I could reach 100 mph in the 06 Mustang.

    Nope, it's a JVC GR-D93 or something like that....a normal MiniDV type cam.

    YouTube compression probably has the biggest effect on how it looks. That and the road has loooooong sweeping turns and the field of view makes it seem slower than normal.

    Past Beckley, through Eccles and there's Bolt Mtn....RT99 I believe it is.

    Basically, if you get of the interstate at Harper Rd and go towards Ruby Tuesday and then just stay on that road down the hill you'll end up on Bolt Mtn.

    You can get to Oceana that way too.

    I live about 8 miles from the bottom of bolt mt. on the rt. 85 side. It is rt 99 and part of it is rt85. Like promod said there is only a few spots you can hit 100mph in a mustang then you have to slam on the brakes to get slowed down to make the curve. I have pushed my mustang a couple of times going across it.

    There's been enough people killed on it for it to be haunted....I'd hate to have to walk it in the dark!

    I heard of a story from my friend, where his dad was driving in a company truck (he worked for a mining company) over the mountain one night when his truck just died. He had got about a half a mile up the mountain and couldn't get it to run. So he walked down the mountain to the gas station you pass just before you start heading up. The on duty gas station attendant drovehim back up to help him with his truck. When they got to he place where he thought he left his truck, it wasn't there. They keep driving and found it on the side of the road in one of the corners abound two miles away.
