What sort of roads do you prefer?

I prefer tight technical corners over the fast sweepers (racer road). The north end of fm 3090 has a few good switchback corners.

I enjoy riding the country side back roads (plenty of shade, peaceful, no cops, no traffic)..

Don't care for racing around on highways...straight --fast---

I know some riders prefer sticking to major roads (2-3 lanes, wide shoulder)

Also know folks that like parking lots..

Just thought this poll might help folks find other riders with similar ride preferences.

gotta love the quick fix of finding a wide open piece of highway and cranking the throttle all the way open. I do love my twisties too but top speed is the key

Anything that is not straight and highway.. tighter the better.

224 is much better than 3090

1725 puts RR to shame

Hill Country beats anything around here

Deals Gap area trumps it all... Arkansas yet TBD

It depends. On a weekend a trip out to the hillcountry is nice, I have all day to enjoy the roads and the setting. After work, waiting till the sun sets then cruising on the highway is nice too, cities are particularly beautiful when lit up. Both are good, but for different reasons.

i like a combination, its all got to be in the country, the shoulder is not too important to me, i like some tight turns but I also like fast sweeping turns. I cant say i prefer anyone over the other, I just like them all at once.
