The roads look great, but very little chance I'll ever get any of them off my "to ride" list....
How about a recommendation for the 5 best paved twisty roads in the US?
I've got a better chance of clearing that list.
Thanks for sharing.
Recommending the 5 best US roads is a tricky task. From what I have heard over the years, the two most popular types of roads are -
* dozens of miles of big sweeping turns (like the 130 miles between Red Bluff, CA and Fortuna, CA, or the 75 miles on TN 68 and GA 60 between Tellico Plains, TN and Suches, GA, or the 46 miles between Bishopville, OH and Caldwell, OH
* a few miles of tight turns such as the 11 miles of the Tail of the Dragon/US 129 near Deals Gap, NC, or the 14 miles of the Snake/US 421 near Shady Valley, TN, or the 20 miles of the Back of the Dragon/VA 16 between Marion, VA and Tazewell, VA, or the 22 northern most section of the Pacific Coast Highway/CA 1 between Leggett, CA and Hardy, CA.
There are much curvier roads than any mentioned above, but they are too slow and too technical to be as fun as these mentioned roads, and I am sure there are more scenic roads than those roads mentioned above, but IMHO all of the roads above will bring a smile to the faces of just about all motorcycle riders. Fortunately, there are way too many wonderful roads to mention all the ones that are truly fun.
