This is part of the road going up to Paradise Lake, near Vernal Utah.
Nothing fancy, but this is Hwy 40 between Duchesne and Heber. It's a great ride.
this is called Nighthawk Hill. This section of the gravel road is a 15% grade. The first time I took this road was on a 1991 Yamaha FJ1200. That kinda freaked me out. But now I've been over it so many times I took my wife on it 2up on the KLR last Sunday.
Missouri Gulch Road, Gilpin County Colorado

Highway 97 near Ellensburg, Washington. Great ride between Ellensburg and Leavenworth, Washington.
I was there yesterday, took the day off work for my birthday, and me and a buddy did the cascade loop. Quick little 500 mile day ride. Only saw 1 fire, quite a few elk, and almost NO other riders. Gotta love riding at 6am on a Tuesday!
Keep the pictures coming!
Road 381 in Quebec, Canada
And this is nothing really special, but it's not too far from home, and I enjoy having some fun there from time to time. There are not enough twisty roads in my area...
I live in a pretty good part of the world when it comes totwisty roads. It's about a 40 minute ride to Deals Gap (aka The Dragon) but I don't go there any more. If I want to spend an afternoon leaning real fast, I go to Highway 116, just north of Knoxville. But we have lots of good choices around here.
I don't have any pictures of 116 (and as far as I'm concerned, all you jerks should just stay away - I like it empty and without LEOs, and I want it to stay that way) But here are a few from the road I take to get there. It's Highway 61.

I don't like Florida. For the most part, we have flat, straight roads. I get bored going in a straight line.
I see a curve in the road..... I get excited. I might even turn around and go through it again.
Highway 36 near the top, about halfway between Red Bluff, CA and the coast.
Cabot Trail, Cape Breton
Gotta second the vote for the Beartooth Pass.
This road is between Beverly and Bemis WV. Doesn't look like much in pictures but it's rough as hell and a blast to ride fast. Even blew a fork seal once. Very few cars and trucks us it because it's too rough but lots of locals on 4 wheelers and side by sides. Surprises the hell out of them when I come up behind them on my V Strom.
Rt. 12, Utah
Somewhere in Germany near the Mosel river
^^^^ WOW, that looks like PERFECT pavement :eek1
