Default SF Bay "drivers" roads

I'm starting to get bored with the local selection of roads in east SF Bay Area. Not trying to pretend to be Schumacher or anything (keeping that on autocross courses) but looking for a fun road. I've driven Mt. Diablo a bunch, Mt. Tam a couple times, but mainly go through the Oakland hills (Redwood Road and Pinehurst, not residential areas).

Saw the new episode of Top Gear last night and was drooling...wish we had passes like those around here.

Mt Hamilton is a fun one. Go a little west and go through the hills on the coast side for a bit of fun.

84 from Alice's to 1 is one of my favorites. Bonny Doon Rd to Empire Grade is another. Del Puerto Valley is probably the best road in CA. If you've actually driven all of these and you're still bored, there is no cure for the disease you have.

come a little south and take hwy 25 from Hollister to King City. Fun hwy to run, lots of open areas that one can test WOT, so I hear

If you like the twisties again down to San Juan Batista, and take the Fremont's Peak road to the observatory. 364 turns from the base to the top (not as fun as you might think).
