Recommend a road with many turns

Hello MH,

I am reading a book "Proficient Motorcycling: The Ultimate Guide to Riding Well," and the author suggests finding a quiet road with many curves to practice transitioning from corner to corner.

What road the local riders can suggest? The bike is a 250 cruiser.

I have ridden Forest (1725), this was a cool road. I felt it was fairly fast road though.

Thank you

3090 is what I meant, it's a road about 25 miles long, and 1725 is just to get to 3090.

Yep, I'd check out some of the FM roads around the west side, just about anything between 90A and 290 is at least decent. Not too high-speed, most aren't too twisty, but have enough curves to give you a good feel for high-speed (45-55mph speed limit) sweepers.
