    Riding is the adventure but what's your favorite place you have been to?

    There are many each means something different to me. In general it's more about the total experience, the people, the food, the culture, etc. that have left me with great memories. Here a small sample, each have a wonderful experience associated with them.
    Lauterbrunnen Valley, Stelvio pass, summit of Mt. Washington….

    What you Ebeo1?

    Some good stuff already, but I have to say it never really got old to go from Flagstaff to Sedona through Oak Creek Canyon to get gas. that was our default starting point much of the time. Meet up after work,..."What do you want to do? I dont know, lets go to Sedona and get gas....."

    The North Kaibab was also always good. The plateau from Jacobs Lake to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Vermillion Cliffs was also good while on the way there.

    Zell am See, Austria. Beautiful sights, roads & people wherever you go. Another spot, the Dolomites, just over those snow capped mountains. landgasthof-wasserfall.jpg

    Before moving to Florida 15 years ago I lived in the NE, give a look at Connecticut and Vermont, great riding roads and a bunch of covered bridges.

    For me it's the San Juan Mountains in Colorado. I would really like a cabin along the Rio Grande just south of that big loop the Continental Divide forms creating the River. From there I could then ride to my second favorite location, SE Utah. Oh Moab is such a jumping town, yeah.

    But my driveway is ten miles from the start of Skyline Drive so I can't complain.

    Up. And to the right.
    Been to Canada a handful of times and it has never disappointed me.

    Same goes with Vermont. Vermont is like thirty years behind everyone else and I love it.

    I sure liked Nebraska and would like to go back there again, but a favorite single place would be Dolly Sods in WV--there really isn't anything there and a few times nobody but me and my sandwich which is probably why I like it as much as I do. It can feel like you are the only person on the planet in a place still pretty much wild while in the eastern US. Heck DC is just a couple of hours away. WV has a lot of great places.

    I gotta say that I've been to most of the above but remain focused on that next favorite place. BTW, quite a few covered bridges in NE KY, most I've driven by commuting to various schools where I worked. Austria is a fairyland place, almost too clean and too manicured-I'm more of a Hungarian/ CZ fanboy over there but have a Balkans desire right now as it's a new look/see for me. Stelvio was a neat experience but given the need to snail through the hairpins it's not my fave pure riding spot, all of which is to say the Dolomites are a better place to enjoy ones ride.
    Every time I see a mountain vista of either the Rockies or the Applachian mtns I say to myself -'this is neat"... Last time I had that feeling was at the view points on Roan Mtn in TN/NC a few weeks ago-if your not a hiker, you can cheat and drive or ride up to the old hotel site and see them for less footsteps than my route on the AT.
    Given that WV has roads I've still not been on, I'm planning for a couple days over there next time out. I don't ride for food at all as we eat better than all of those places at home. Hamburgers, pies, included, I do like seafood eaten out as it's harder to replicate at home. Not too many groupers, flounders, shrimps or lobsters swimming here in KY?:rofl
    Oh, I cannot leave this topic w/o saying Mexico is calling me...
