    I did a run between Iowa City and Des Moines that wasn't 1/2 bad either. Not Deals Gap, but so much better than I80 I couldn't believe it.

    The NE corner of the state has some nice stuff around Dubque.

    And following any of the rivers usually turns up some interesting routes too.

    Van Buren County, Keosauqua area-- they claim to still be the only county in Iowa without at least one electric stop light..I believe them.

    Highway 92, east-west through Nebraska is a wonderful ride/drive. Check it out especially where it is north of North Platte and points west on the south side of Lake McConaughy.

    This is a pretty decent sandhills route I use between CO and MN to lessen the tedium. Sorry, no waypoints...just a Google map.

    183 from Council Bluffs to Ute is pretty cool, some of the dirt roads and level 2 maintenance roads are even better.

    I know I'm bumping an old thread but you guys have to check this one out :clap

    Broken Bow area Twisties

    This is situated in central Nebraska, just north of Lexington and a little after Oconto. It is all paved asphalt, fortunately not much LEO activity in this area either but keep your eyes open once you head into Broken Bow limits.

    >20 good curves and lots of snake turns :) and for you DS'ers out there just venture out in the area and you'll find nice hills and short canyons.
