10 best motorcycle roads in the U.S.

Nice list, I've only ridden the Big Bend road myself. Not sure why Route 66 is included, 2200 miles constitutes a really long road where I'm sure some parts are better than others. Same for the road #10.

She left off any Hill Country roads and Arkansas roads, I can vouch for the AR roads, it's pretty nice all along the west coast of the state.

I think it matters who defines "best" and what criteria they use.

Most scenic
Most historic
Most turns in fewest miles
Most bars in fewest miles

FZ1, Ducati Monster, R6, Gold Wing, Seca 2, TTR230, EX 250 and Metropolitan

I have done half of those roads listed so far and every one of them is far better than anything offered in Texas or Arkansas.

All the heavy RV traffic on the Pacific Coast Highway made my ride lame often.

The ride from Valdez, Alaska to Anchorage, Alaska should be in the top ten.

Interesting list and I'm glad that they stated much of the Appalachians on the while rather than just freakin' Deals Gap. Still, it doesn't stop at the Gap. Some arguably better roads are just south and west of there. We used to make trips to the dragon, but it had as much to do with what other roads were in between there and North Georgia as it had to do with riding the Gap. Man I'm missing those roads these days.

Maybe a trip back there this fall is in order...

That which did not kill me has only made me a lot more stiff and sore the rest of the time.
