East Bay twisties - where do you stretch your legs?

I have one or two back roads in the east bay (east of oakland) where I love to row the gears and listen to the magic coming out of my rear end (especially with the top down), but I'm looking for alternatives, particularly roads that are less frequented by bikes (the pedal kind). I'm not looking to go crazy, just interested in stretching the E93 legs a bit (w/SSK, pulley and exhaust!).

This may be a question best answered in PM, so feel free...

You can try the back roads of Crow Canyon between Castro Valley and San Ramon. Theres lots of Twist and turns thats pretty fun. The alternative is Castro Valley hills near Lake Chabot. I think that road hits Oakland, I'm not 100% positive but give it a try.

I am sorry but these two roads that you mentioned are packed with cars and cops ...
