And the one to Australia.:biggrin: Can the last person to leave New Zealand please turn the light off.Well down in my neck of the woods I love SH73 fromChristchurch, New Zealand to Greymouth, then SH7 from greymouth over the lewis pass to the east coast again and back to Christchurch....a good range of terraind from coastal to alpine passes with heaps of good corners and a few good long straights...I truly live in the best country in the world (imho)
+1. PCH, aka Highway 1. Pretty tough to get tired of cruising along the coast of the Pacific Ocean (Malibu, Santa Barbara, Carmel, Big Sur and points between). Ocean on one side, mountains on the other. Oh yeah, it sucks! :lol:
Would have to agree, wholeheartedly. In adddition, Hwy 7 North from south of Russellville to the Missouri state line offers a very wide range of turns, twisties, vistas and views for just about any rider. (Roughly 130 miles)In Arkansas it's HWY 23 from Ozark to Eureka Springs, 70 miles of twisties and beautful country.
Haven't ridden all of the roads in Alabama yet, so I am not sure which would be considered THE best. Here are a couple I really enjoy:
1) AL Highway 178 - the Little River Canyon area. There are several overlooks along the scenic drive. The road is paved with winding curves and hills and very little walking is needed to enjoy the views from the scenic overlooks.
2) AL Highway 281 through the Talledega National Forrest to Mt. Cheaha, the highest point in Alabama.
I don't think either compares to many of the scenic routes through northern Georgia,east Tennessee or North Carolina though. There are some absolutely gorgeous rides in them thar hills!! I especially liked the Cherohala Skyway - that is one beautiful ride! :-D The Dragon was just a ride to say "Been there, done that!" - once was enough for me.
Thank you, "900classic" this is one of the best websites I've seen about motorcycle stuff.
