Super Thread.

Wouldn't it be cool if someone had all this info as Garmin GPS routes?

Saturday I'll be doing 36 From Fortuna California to Red Bluff. I haven't ridden it before. Robert frost, when asked what his favorite poem was replied:"The one I'm working on."

I drove Hwy.36 in Ca. this fall and I am still sore from all the twists and turns to complete this epic road. A classic ride. And I was on 4 wheels. Would love to ride on 2.

Far from anybody's favorite, but if you find yourself in S. Indiana, ride Hwy 62 from Madison East. The "Chief Whiteye trail"

except they lower the speed limit to a crawl to save the lives of the dipsticks that can't keep themselves out of the ditch....much more fun after Sturgis is over

Ooo yeah, Leggett 101 to 1,that's a fine road, so too is the 20 from Willits down to Fort Bragg, and the Skaggs Springs.
Here's a video I took of them.

+1 on the Dragon - not at all enjoyable to ride anymore.

Many super routes from the Ceasars Head State Park area to Hot Springs.

If you're from the area you know what I'm talking about: if not, stick to the Dragon and keep the POPO busy.

Yet another list (of redundant votes)

1. And another vote for CA State Rte 36 (Hwy 101 to I-5) - for giggles, west to east, turn around and ride east to west.
Same road, two great experiences. I've already told my family I want my ashes dropped along this road.

2. CA State Routes 299 & 3 - Redding to Weaverville to Yreka (ok, two roads, but one route

3. CA State Rte 128 (Hwy 1 to Hwy 101) - with a stop or two for tasting the better things .

4. And another vote for Utah State Rte 12

5. CA State Rte 89 - end-to-end (unless it's fire season)

6. WA State Rte 20 - end-to-end (watch for the speed traps around Republic and the traffic headed eastbound to Winthrop on Friday and Saturday )

7. BC Hwy 6 (from US/BC border to Vernon, BC) - jawdropping fun

8. CO State Rte 550 (Durango to Ridgway) - time this one with the Horizons Unlimited meeting)

9 & 10 - TBD

Rt. 100 Vermont should definitely be on the list. Nothing like it on a sunny day in October when the leaves are peakin'.

May I also add Fish Rock Road, Sonoma County, CA?

Probably 205, but MN Hwy1 from Ely to Lake Superior. Hurry before they straighten it out.

I plan on riding across the country in May and I am going to try to hit up as many of these roads as possible, so keep em coming guys. Some one already said mine but 144 in PA is probably the best ride I have been on so far.

Might want to avoid the pass roads in May, most would likely still be getting snow that early. Or dress warm.

Be sure to post your pictures to the "Pictures of Cold Rides" thread...
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...=408528&page=4

This is June 07 going from Walden Co. through the pass to get to Poudre Canyon and on to Ft.Collins. (not me, just stolen from the above thread)

I am leaving from maryland in mid to late May so hopefully by the time I hit the rockies it is a bit warmer. I am planning on taking lots of pics and making a ride report as well. I already called all the states I plan to hit and got a free state highway map. gonna do it old school with no GPS.

If you want an adventure use a map. If you want a spread sheet mentality use a GPS. I still believe wandering off the beaten path beats the heck out of a planned/plotted computer voice telling me where to turn. IMO.
