Any road outside of a city is a good road as far as I'm concerned. :bom_antlers:

Talking Mo bettah up norf

My vote is for WNY and north central PA. I used to think the best riding roads in the country were out west but the east has some phenomenal riding you just have to get out and do some exploring. There are some real jems out there waiting for you to discover them.

[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]K7 Wee, rebuilt like new and then some after collision with deer and mildly farkled.

Hey Brian, I'm from the Hudson Valley area and ride Harriman, Bear Mt area all the time, shoot me a PM when your up for a ride. I normally get a group ride together on Sat/Sun mornings every couple of weeks, the group typically goes out for 3-5 hrs and travels throughout the Hudson Valley area and beyond, fun twisty scenic rides.

I'll tell you this, no eternal reward will forgive us now for wasting the dawn.

Nah, that honor goes to AZ-191 (Old Devil's Highway, AZ-666) in eastern AZ.:tongue_smilie: Deal's gap is "318 curves in 11 miles". The Devil has 1800 in 90 miles, 425 of which are hairpin. THAT'S a sick road! Given it's located in nowhereville, there is an absence of any circus-like atmosphere (often found at DGap) and traffic is a non-issue.

n.y.roads

well (A) girl , you sound like a hard core tourer , whats the name of the town rt 191 is in , i was out in az about four years ago , west of flagstaff , i forget the town or the road ,but it was basicly a zig zag cliff that went strait up and when you got to the top you looked strait down at the town below . ive gotta mapquest it to remember where it was , but i agree with you az has got some of the sickest & most senic roads ,aside from deals . the only down side to my ride out there in az was i borrowed my buddies indian which was a real nice bike , but compaired to a strom in the twisties it was like ridding a brontasouras .
