wow! 3 of my favorite roads around here are ranked #1,#6 and #9 on this list...#9 is just up the road from where I live,and I go by the turnoff every day.

#1 was like an inaugural ride on the new RGU.I'd only had it a couple of days when My wife and I rode it.

I'm very lucky to live here.

Thanks for sharing. I was fortunate to get to ride #2 and #3 on the same run. Kinda strange they didn't mention they're almost connected. The southern end of 469-mile Blue Ridge Parkway is very near the Tail of the Dragon.

Of course that's a subjective list. I've ridden 10 of those 15 and rank half of those as very high on my list. The Natchez Trace has it's moments but at 440+ miles at 50 mph there are stretches that almost put me to sleep. Same with the BRP.

Beartooth and PCH make my list of top 6, as does Oregon 3 up to 12 at Lewiston. What's not listed are Utah hwy 128, US 95 from Blanding UT to Hanksville and TX hwy 170 between Presideo and Terlingua.

But again, that's all subjective.

'03 Deuce: 90k miles and counting, '11 RGU: 80k miles and counting.

I would drop the BRP way down the list. Yes, it is pretty but crawling through the Park sucks.

3 of my favorite to ride. We are lucky to live in Montana even with this white crap on the ground right now.
