    Wish I'd seen this before your trip.

    Indian Highway in OK is curvy, scenic, and has very little traffic.

    OK 259 from Three Sticks to the Talimena Drive is nice. This bisects the Talimena Drive, which isn't nice.

    I love the Ouachitas. They are my home. The Ozarks have better pavement. Jasper has awesome roads in every direction.

    Northern NM and SW CO have really great riding also-for 4 months a year.

    The next federal holiday you can take advantage of is Labor Day in about 6 weeks. Recommend you repeat the process, but this time go south and pick up some of those Hill Country routes suggested in the other thread. Same time frame, distance, etc. - so you have the logistics cold.
