Plenty of good roads you just have to get out of the city to find them.

Welcome to MH

They're here, but you have to be willing to travel a bit, and be content with turning around and riding back the other direction. . .over and over. Whatever ya find won't last terribly long.

If you like twisty roads, you shouldn't have moved to a mosquito infested, swampy coastal plain.
Like the others said, there are twisty roads but you have to go somehwllwhere else to find them."

Of course the best twisty around is MSRH or GSS.

like others have said, there are twisty roads out there, just outside of the city...the roads in town are a little too uneven to take with any speed confidently...nothing like gettin' yo lean on, and bouncing over a pothole to make your pucker up

I know a really really twisty road off HWY 521 if your interested. I've never taken my bike on its for the fact that its so twisty. Every single 100 feet almost your in a bend. Its a long stretch of maybe 50 miles, its a really nice drive in the country.

I only recommend going during the day to avoid wildlife at night.
