+1 on the Sea to Sky Hwy (99) from Vancouver through Lillooet. It is guaranteed to wow you. A word to the wise: I think it was July or even August when I did it- I was uncomfortably hot around Vancouver. Stopped north of Whistler in Pemberton. Continued north before dawn the next day and got a frost warning light and frost on my windshield. Taught me to pay closer attention to elevation year round. Note to self: The west has some serious mountains. The road and scenery were great. Very little traffic north of Whistler.
Vancouver island is closer to home so I've seen more of it. Not a fan of cities but I like Victoria. Good place to park the bike and walk a bit. Going west through Sooke, Port Renfrew and across the island past Lake Cowichan is a good loop. It is 100% pavement; a recent development I think.
Another island favorite is between Parksville and Ucluelet/Tofino. This is a very fun ride, particularly if you are an early riser. I like to get on this road early so I'm not looking at the back of an RV and hoping for a passing zone the whole time, at least on the way over.
That being said: From what I've seen, you can't go wrong in BC.
