What is the best place to look for nice routs?

I tried Google and it gave me some OK websites.

Anyone know where I can look up "Bike Roads" or "Bike Routes".

you know what I mean.... Winding roads, elevation chages....

What's this FOREST RUN I keep hearing about.

I'm tired to Regular Roads.

PLEASE HELP!

Google maps is your friend. Just look on the outskirts of town for windy roads and go there.

Yeah, I wish more people would add routes to it. I can think of several around Houston to add, just never seem to have the time.

I'm actually using that website to make a state-by-state file routing all the stuff they list as "best" by category. I'm starting with LA-MS-AL since that's my next trip, but I hope to eventually get a lot more done.

When I want to go somewhere, all I'll have to do is connect the dots between the "good" routes!

Oh - and mapping software is your friend. Whether you use a web-based version like Google Maps or software-based like Microsoft Streets & Trips, it's worth taking the time to learn how to use them.

your local big bookstore (barnes and noble or whatever) should have books on the subject... I read em all the time.
national geographic has a list of "scenic drives" listen by state/region, most of those are pretty good bets to be memorable riding trips. there are also tons of specific motorcycle route planning books and lists of great roads, with suggested lodging/dining/sightseeing excursions and etc. If youre on a long trip you might want to try to find someone from the area for their feedback. I know that a lot of the roads that are "famous" in my neck of the woods and that people come to ride from far away, are also "famous" with LEO's and usually heavily patrolled, so if youre on a long trip it might be a pain in the to find what you thought would be a great ride choked up with cops and you averaging the 35 mph speed limit.

Just get a map.

Except as you know and Miss Teen North Carolina pointed out, many US Americans don't have maps and therefore such as The Iraq and South Africa and the Asians...

You best bet is to hook up with some of the guys that do SMR's on here.
