What's the best riding road?

The one you're riding on.

(I just wanted to see if I could write something as fcuking queer as the replies to the monthly question in the AMA magazine.)

Cool list MO thanks.. I think the Colorado to Kansas ride was a bogus choice having done that in a car several times.. Agree with the San Jaun Durango thing..

Nice. I've ridden Four of those routes (or at least parts of them) - Deal's Gap, Cherohala, The Northern part of the Durango loop, and US 1 to Key West (just this March).



I've got a lot of riding to do to catch-up with all these.........

C'mon, a ride through the Alps or around Lago di Como is probably boring as a Saskatchewan highway...

Who could disagree with that list!



Oddball suggestion for consideration: Nebraska State Route 2 from Grand Island to Alliance. Straight through the heart of the Sand Hill Country - Willa Cather land. 100+ miles of hilly grassland. Much more interesting than the run from CO into KS.

I'm sure many folks here know about the Arkansas roads, but last year I had to drive from St. Louis to Longview Texas, and I had the opportunity to drive through Arkansas. I would have never in a million years expected it to be so beautiful. I was on the Scenic 7, but since then I've investigated Ark roads and they are quite notorious for being great riding roads. HSTA has a lot of info.

Check out Harley's new atlas. It's in there.

maladq, you need to ride north off 2 on any of those Sand Hill's secondary roads that run through sand hill lake country. Absolutely desolate and beautiful and no cars. Need to pee, then just stop and do it. This whole area of Nebraska is just awesome, especially if rains have greened up the Sand Hills like they have this year. Go north all the way to 275. Pick one that is pock marked with lakes. Won't regret it.

I had the same impression a few years ago. Those Ozarks are beautiful.



Man, I read a story like that, it's 8 am, I'm sitting in work on a Friday, my boss is already gone for the weekend, the bike is parked out back, she said the commute just ain't cuttin' it...



Palomar here we come!

If it's the Deal's Gap picture he was heading in the other (correct) direction.



Not that that never happened...

I just got back from a weekend on the Durango Loop. That was a particularly awesome ride. Especially the very technical twisty bit after Ouray. Very very awesome. Think they had to knock the smile off my face with a ballpeen hammer. Even got a by from a cop who had me dead to rights on the straight back into Durango.
