Hwy 89A in Arizona. Prescott to Jerome to Sedona. Once you are through Prescott valley and start up into the mountains it is fantastic. I'll post some pics when I get back from Tellico Plains as I'm traveling through there again.

Oh man, I've done 89-A three times by car but not on 2 wheels yet. Every time I get into Jerome and see the t-shirt that says "I survived 89-A, XX curves in XX miles" I want one. But I won't buy it until I've done it by motorcycle!

Zion Nat'l Park, Redwoods Nat'l Monument, Lassen Volcanic Natn'l Park...Lassen and Zion were unbelievable

Doug-In-Skamania and I did 89A on Honda Valkyries a few years back, peg scrapping on every curve!

The Redwoods as soon as my arm and Strom are back on the road!

Going to the Sun Highway at Glacier Natl Park. Try and ride from east to west if dropoffs with no guardrails bother you.

Highway 61 from Duluth to Canadian border along shore of Lake Superior in Minnesota. Highway 61 from St. Paul to Iowa border along Mississippi River.

Almost anywhere in Alaska near the ocean. And near Denali Park.

Banff Canada area and Lake Louise. Jasper and Calgary.

The entire Tuscany area of south central Italy. Sienna, Florence, Rome, Assisi, Pompei and the countryside.

West Coast from Seattle to Northern California and the Redwood Natl Forest. Yosemite and Sequoia Natl Parks. Also Lake Taho area.

All the Natl Parks in Utah.

And....if you can rent a cycle-----Maui, Hawaii.

The Nurburgring

If you're a driving enthusiast of any sort, and you happen to be in northern Europe, you should really take an extra day to get yourself to the Nurburgring in central western Germany. I haven't had a chance to do it on a motorcycle, but I have driven it a couple of times in rent-a-cars, and it is AWESOME! Not only are you working through 70-some-odd curves over 21km (with the longest straight being only about 2.5km), both climbing and descending, but you're also traveling through a really picturesque wooded area.

I drove this in my pre-motorcycling days, and I gotta tell you, I gained immense respect for motorcyle riders as I was doing everything in my power to keep my rented BMW 320i from losing it around these corners and the bikers are passing me like I was standing still! Didn't ruin my fun, 'though. After each lap I was sweating and shaking - had to rest about 20 minutes in between each of my five laps.
