Copy list and add road, google link if you have it so i can plot a route, and description.



1. FM 3090 route from Highway 6 to Hwy 244 ----------- from Navasota 18 miles total 30-45mph rated curves. Low traffic, low enforcement, no patrol noticed in 3 trips.
2. Highway 149 all the way through forest,---------- 40+ miles of 45m, mph+ turns, mostly sweeping turns. Beautiful scenery with moderate traffic, no heavy patrol noticed.
3. FM 1736 from FM 1488 to Highway 6. Remote, low traffic. Highspeed sweepers, mostly 55mph +, low enforcement
4.1489. road is in great shape and have never seen a cop out there.. and avoid 3090.. that road is SH*T

I agree, posting the maps is a terrible idea. that's how they get all squidded up. it's bad enough as it is.

Wow. I'm guessing you think i'm screaming through these roads. No, top speed averaged around 70-80. But on 55mph roads, that would be a ticket for DPS who isn't too friendly.

I'm referring to good roads that you can cruise on without having radar traps.... Why is everyone assuming i mean 130 mph runs?!?! I'm just talking about not worrying about radar traps, and hitting 70-80ish without fear of fines......

I'm on a ninja 250 anyway, its kind of hard to break the speed limit on it!

If you want to avoid speed traps, you need to avoid the better known roads, which are the ones that are posted in this thread..

No. You guessed wrong.
Keep trying . You may catch on yet.

Personal favorites and they are in the Greater Houston Area.

1 - Memorial Dr. between 610 and Beltway 8. The area around Bunker Hill Village between Blalock and Gessner has five 90 degrees curves. (two way road, so be carefull not crossing the double yellow line).

2 - The loop formed by Memorial Dr and Allen Parkway between I-45 and Shepherd Dr. (a favorite from the old timers) Be aware that this area is heavely enforced by The Man.

3 - "610 in 10" another classic from the old times!! Most likely the Hayabusa crowd will be able to do it. I never go above the "ton" so is out of the question for me to met the goal of "610 in 10". Watch for debri in the road in East side of the 610.

4 - Belway 8. Great track but also heavely enforced by The Man (Constables and Sheriff's Dept. you do not want to mess with the first ones).

ok.... I admit my bad. I was thinking of just finding new roads. Didn't realize what reception would be to this... How about you recommend by PMing any special road you think i'd like if you care to share it. I'll avoid posting online right now. Thanks.
