Simple'around the block' ride, start anywhere along the route.
Tons of twisties, elevation change and views.
Back roads to BRP Arron Sylvia
Great Curves and Stunning Nature along one of America's best motorcycling roads Approximately 500 miles of some of the best and most scenic twisting tarmac in North America. Enjoying the beautiful nature and the stunning curves all the way from Asheville, North Carolina into Roanoke, Virginia. This is very nicely maintained road with lots of grip but there can also be wildlife (deers, bears, etc) so be on the lookout for those! Highest section between Soco Gap and Wagon Road Gap a particular highlight Note: Some sections of this road are closed in winter.
Lots of twisters
The Cherohalo Skyway is very scenic. Most any rider of any skill level can ride it. The Tail of the Dragon is very technical and is best for experienced riders or thrill seekers. There are several riders killed each year on the Dragon. Pay close attention to your riding, speed and what is up ahead
Just a fun ride I like that's not quite as long as my others. Lots of twisties and scenery.
alternate 2 day ride for day 5
the foothills is great

Use monkey butt.....stop often. Great riding .....only experienced riders
Enjoy this frickin ride. Stop often
Fun mtn roads from Acworth Ga to Asheville NC. One night of camping.
Great curvy mountain road. Gravel in roadway at some corners due to cars. Hardly no straights.
You will definitely want to travel this road South to North so you will be pulling uphill in the twisties. This road has lots of elevation change, very tight corners, switch backs etc.
Don't take this road lightly, it contains some very dangerous curves.
Now that 226A has been repaved, this is an excellent motorcycle road if you in the mood for twisties!
226A has very little traffic, and trucks over 30 ft are banned. The 226 (NOT 226A) does have more traffic, including larger trucks, but that road is also wider and more open, allowing for better visibility than that tighter and narrower 226A.
A nice loop ride from Dillsboro, NC through Nantahala Gorge, up Wayah Road into Franklin, NC (for lunch) and back down 441 returning Dillsboro. Ridable from the Asheville area in a day.
Some curves in Wayah Road does have loose gravel kicked up from the roadside.
Several switchbacks in here, but all in all just a nice curvey mountain ride.
The entire Copperhead Loop route is just a bit over 77 miles, which is an easy afternoon jaunt for most riders. However, to get the most out of your experience, we recommend that you plan to spend at least half a day or more exploring the various Points of Interest along the way.
There truly isn’t a better combination of roads for a motorcyclist or sports car enthusiast to enjoy. The loop starts just minutes away from the Asheville Regional Airport. The Biltmore Estate and other area tourist destinations are within easy reach.
Since the loop is comprised of only three roads, remembering the route is quite easy.
Tight twisties. Road had some narrow bridges with some gravel on them. Watch out for Dump Truck traffic on the road. Used by locals and not much motorcycle traffic. Challenging road through an area used for white water rafting. So watch out for their busses.
A very scenic route from Maggie Valley to Gatlinburg.Plenty of curves with light traffic and a good place to see wildlife - deer,wild turkey and even elk,near the Blue Ridge Parkway and Hwy 441 intersection.(Pay attention to the fields in this area). The temperatures remain cool on those hot summer days in August making it a very good ride in the summer.
Maggie Valley is a good center location to stay for a week on a motorcycle (stayed there more than once)been to Cherokee,Dragons Tail,Blue Ridge Parkway - both south and north,Mt Mitchell State Park with a restaurant on top on the mountain and numerous other places to visit from this location.
Nice ride to see country scenery and experience interesting turns and curves. You can continue on 268 to W Kerr Scott Dam if you wish and then return and take the loop shown...or at the top of the loop you can continue up the mountain toward Blowing Rock and Boone. There is even a campground available in the Ferguson area exclusively for bikers.
