    And add Dolores Canyon in far western Colorado, canyon carving in a red rock dream world through Gateway is outstanding.The list is getting longer.

    Riding on the beaches of the east coast of Florida provides alot of scenic curves as well....:evil (and some not so scenic...:lol3 )

    Can't say what the 10 best are, but take Deal's Gap off that list. Loved Cherohala, but not Deal's Gap.

    I second those who nominated 33 in WV - hilarious fun that more than made up for bailing like a wuss on the Shenandoah 500 after Sunday lunch. Isn't that the one they call the Baby Dragon?

    Arkansas does suck, nothing to see there. I go back 3 times a year just to remember how bad it sucks:puke1 :evil


    While on the CDR in '07 we found NM Hwy 152 by accident. We had bailed east to I-25 and Truth or Consequences due to mud. Took 152 back to Silver City to catch the CDR route.

    ------ My short list -----------
    California:
    -Piuma
    -Schueren
    -Stunt road
    -Saddle Peak
    -Tuna Canyon -- a one way barrel of monkeys!
    -Las Flores
    -Latigo Canyon
    -Decker Canyon
    -Deer Creek / Sycamore Canyon road -- on a supermotard
    -Mulholland Highway

    -Glendora Mountain / Ridge roads
    -Baldy road
    -Highway 243 from Banning to Idyllwild, then down the 74 to Indian Wells
    -Highway 138 through Crestline, then down Rim of the World highway

    -Avoid Angeles Crest Highway like the plague! Far too many stupid drivers and squids on sportbikes.

    Pretty much any road near a national park in Utah

    I agree, Cherohala is much better than Deal's Gap. A dirt favorite is the loop road around Linville Gorge in NC. My quick homey ride favorite is Bear Creek Canyon road up to Squaw Pass road at Evergreen and on up to the top of Mt. Evans at 14,000+.
