I don't mean the 11 mile stretch of the Dragon or that sort or ride, I mean long range like what our bikes are made for. I'm fortunate in that I live close to some very good if not best roads for bikers in my part of the world and have been on many of them.

I nominate the Skyline Drive -Blue Ridge Parkway -Cherohala Skyway continuum. It starts at Front Royal in Northern VA, passing through North Carolina, ending in Tellico Plains TN totaling over 600 miles of the nicest scenery and curvy roads on the East Coast.

I'm sure there are lots, I'd like to hear about some others so I can start planning which one to choose next.​

I've made that trip several times over the years, and without a doubt I'll be doing it again. It's a great ride...

Hiway 20 in Washington State, the North Cascades Hiway, from one side of the Cascade Mountains to the other. That area is refered to as the North American Alps. Beautiful scenery, great curves and elevation changes make for an unforgetable riding experience.

Oops... just noticed a detail error in my original post braymond. I should have said...

Hwy 1 along the coast from Ventura to Northern California and THEN 101 on to Seattle.

Is that the way you prefer too?

US Rt 2 from Bangor Me to Burlington VT.
Then take 3 days to come home on the backroads. White and Green Mtns, Kanc, Mt Washington, Laconia/Winnpesaukee, Molly Stark highway, Lake Champlain, fantastic place to ride. We go out at least a couple times a year.

For us poor wretches that havent made it out West. Yet. :cool:

The Coronado Trail - Arizona
Hwy 12 - Utah

Talimena Scenic Drive - a National Scenic Byway in southeastern Oklahoma and extreme western Arkansas from Talihina, Oklahoma, to Mena, Arkansas.
Pam's Hatefull Hussy diner in Talihina is a great place for breakfast before starting the ride.

Plenty of others but they would be duplicates of what others have posted

I believe it Hwy 16 f that runs from Buffalo thru Ten Sleep and then to Worland. My son and I rode this in 2008. This was one of my favorites as well.

I am probably spoiled with the roads around here.
Teton Pass 100 miles from my house. Yellowstone Park 100 miles away. Bear tooth pass down Chief Joeseph Highway into Cody and back home a long day. I like to do it in two. Stanley, idaho to Kamiah and up the Lolo Pass down to Salmon, Idaho. Two to three days, four if I have time. We call that one the Idaho tour.
Wife and I head to Canada every summer. Try to do 2,000-4,000 miles. This year we did about 3,800.
Going through the Canadian Rockies is awesome.
Hwy 200 out of Missoula by Lake Pende Orielle (ponderay) And up the Priest River into into Washington up 20 to Canada. Stop in Nelson B.C. eat at the outdoor cafe and head to the Water Falls. Get on 6 up to Nakusp. Catch the free Ferry ride to Revelstoke. Run down Kamloops and up to Valemount over to Jasper through the Ice Field Parkway to Banff onto Radium Hot springs. Down into the USA to Libby over to Kalispell, Montana.....Bomb it on the interstate to home......ahhhhhhhhh how sweet it is.
