Rode 3090 for the first time

I am pretty disappointed in 3090. I have been reading on here about how its a fun road to ride, but I don't get it. I was expecting it to be a nice smooth road with some tight corners and twisties, similar to racer's road. It had to be one of the bumpiest roads I have ridden on. It got better after the stop sign, but still not what I expected. I didn't feel confident enough to push it with the horrible quality of the pavement. The cruisers going 20mph didn't help! I think I will stick to RR and F'ville.

I really enjoyed the ride to Montgomery through the national forest. I past a Corvette club with 60+ cars.

Some Mexicans in a van wiped out cyclist and a mailbox on 362. Looked like the Sheriffs had just gotten there. The guy looked to be okay from what I could tell.

3090 was a good road before it was tore up. RR was the same way a few months ago when they were doing construction on it.

Sounds like you were expecting a race track. Bumps and gravel are part of riding in the real world.

You see a lot of us posting about how much we enjoyed our ride on 3090. It's as much the people we ride with, the time we spend socializing, the quality of the food and conversation at Yankees as it is riding the turns on 3090. When you combine it all together, 3090 is a fine place to spend a portion of our day.

It's the whole package for me, for sure......... We have what we have in the area as far as roads are concerned.. I doubt they will be building new ones for us motorcycle riders.

+50. Don't expect 3090 to be as a track. Enjoy it's scenery and NEVER get use to it. Just when you believe you remember every corner and hill is when 3090 will bite you in the .
3090 is never great alone. It's meant to be ridden with others.(IMO) The fellowship and the LEARNING each time I go out with others is what I dig about 3090. I've ridden it plenty of times solo and find it rather boring. It's when I'm with a certain group of riders that I find it exciting and entertaining.

RR and 3090 are apples and oranges. RR is pretty smooth, wide open, and no real surprises. 3090 is a mixed up combination of moderately tight and hilly road.

There are many other tighter, more technical roads around. Fayetteville has some good stuff but isn't the 'end all" of good roads in the area.

any time..

I keep a few of my favs in my back pocket for "personal use"

Who likes which roads really depends on the kind of rider you are.

The more wide open ones like RR aren't truely fun or challenging until you break a ton.. just don't get caught. Then again, my personal rule is my lane is my limit.. some peeps don't follow that.

I like everything from 10 mph marked tight bumpy ones to the "65" yellow high speed sweepers... more the merrier I say!

Plus I enjoy the challenge of "reading" a new road, so running the same route every weekend might as well be a commute to me... gets boring.

3090 was the regular 3090 today; minus bikes lol.

I keep warning the slick tar at the 244/3090 turn but no one listens to me. Two slid completely sideways AFTER my warning lol.

i've been to 3090 but just like the guys up top said^^^......its riding with the other guys an eating together that makes it a great ride. i personally don't like 3090, yeah is not like RR but it just too fart for me to ride up there, too many loose rocks and not as smooth as RR but in the other hand the forest road is a lot better (149) i could ride that road all day!!
