AR 9 between Allison, AR and Melbourne, AR. AR 58 from the intersection of AR 69 through Guion to AR 14.
There's so many. And a lot of great gravel roads in between 'em all.
I'll be back later, gotta make out a route for this weekend.
I live in Tx and my absolutely favorite state to ride in is Arkansas.Its about 450 miles from Dallas and when we get there its like a totaly diff country. I want to move to Clarksville really badly but I dont think I could find any work. I envy where you live, I couldnt imagine having the Ozarks in my backyard!

US Cal-180 from Squaw Valley into Kings Canyon NP and on to Kanawyers. On a warm empty-road weekday, when the Kings River is running hard.

route 250 west of Charlottesville, VA is cool, Little traffic, twisty, through the mountains, and nice little places to camp, eat, etc.

Going-to-the-sun Road is not a good riding road. It would be in the top 10 for sight-seeing roads, though.

Strike Pennsyltuckey from the list of potentially fantastic roads.

In spite of what you'd THINK might be really great motorcycling, with all the rural and mountain roads, little traffic, and scenic routes, with long valleys, and all that farm country...

It sucks. May as well fer get it. If I were y'all, I'd stay in Tennessee/North Carolina.

Totally agree. The first time I went through I was like ten years old or so. It left such a mark on me that I went back as an adult and spent lots of time solo hiking the backcountry - which, in it's own right, puts Going To The Sun to shame.

GNP is truly one of the most beautiful places on Earth and the only place I've ever been to that compares is The Himalayas in Nepal.

(Thank God everybody goes to Yellowstone and Yosemite instead. LOL.)

All the jobs are in NW Arkansas. Fayetteville, Springdale, Rogers, Bentonville.

You'll still be only minutes from some fabulous riding.

If this were Sport Touring Network site I could agree with many of these roads but it is not. My ten favorite roads are all DIRT.... Such as FR143 Adamo to Patagonia AZ. Gage-Separ rd., Gage to White Signal NM. That kind.

Some of my favorites....


221...parallels the BRP from G'father Mtn to Boone NC. (and most of the roads around that area)

421, 133...The four corners at Shady Valley Tn. (Not far from Boone NC as well) have spent many days riding that entire area, to Bristol, Damascus, Elizabethton, etc.

Upstate SC Area, to North Ga, & NC including Warwoman Rd already mentioned. One of our favorite stops up there is The Dillard House. http://www.dillardhouse.com/

Used to have a place just outside of Gainesboro Tn, Hwys 85, 135, etc, in that area are fun, and little traffic. Can't remember all of the roads we found up there but some between there, and Knoxville were really fun.

The ride between the places I used to own (ex wife don't you know) from Gainesboro TN, to Westminster SC included the Cherohala & Dragon. As others have mentioned there are roads just as good and less populated in those areas as well.

Looking forward to finally getting out west and riding, will definitely be using this thread for our adventures out there.....
