SS7 : Potenza - Matera ( Appian Way )

Basilicata/Calabria > Italy > Europe
June 14, 2007 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

S7 from Potenza to Matera, via Tricarico and Grassana. It follows the Roman Appian Way. One of the most enjoyable and scenic routes in the area. Its a bit difficult to find coming out of Potenza so take the main autovia the 407 and then follow signs for Tricorico. Matera is a very attractive town and well worth a visit.

CA 299 : Redding - Eureka

CA - DelNorte/Siskiyou/Mo... > California > United States > America
October 13, 2006 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.5

Highway 299 is a great ride. To make it even better, join it up with Highway 36 to gie a good circular day out of just over 300 miles.

US 129 : Robbinsville - Maryville ( Deal's Gap - Tail of The Dragon )

NC - Cherokee/Graham/Clay... > North Carolina > United States > America
May 11, 2006 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.4

Deal's Gap is THE twistiest road in the Southeastern US. Their claim to fame is, "311 curves in 11 miles". It is a constant playground for bikers of all kinds complete with a biker-friendly campground at the North Carolina starting point. A variety of hairpin turns will keep any motorcyclist's eyes wide open. People from all over North America come here just to ride "The Dragon". Recently though, it has become so popular that the police presence is heavy. Be sure not to cross the yellow line and they'll leave you alone. The cops are around most heavily on the weekends as there are hundreds of motorcycles that come through. Not only is "The Dragon" worth riding, ANY road you pick in this area will be beautiful with long sweeping curves and breathtaking views.

S429 : Poggibonsi - Castelina in Chianti

Umbria/Toscana/Marche > Italy > Europe
March 23, 2006 - 3 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.0

The lower part of the route is fairly ordinary but the final section is really pretty and great riding. Once you get to Castellina, there are plenty of other enjoyable rides.

E74 / Col de Tende / N204 / SS20 : Cuneo - Tende - Ventimiglia

Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Az... > France > Europe
October 30, 2005 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.1

This road winds through a spectacular gorge, some fast sweepy sections and a great set of hairpins. watch out for the 'tunnel du tende, a long, dark, narrow and bumpy tunnel with artics coming down the middle of the road at you. Apart from that, a blinder of a road and a great way to get to the Med, or even better, turn off at Breil and take the D2204 to Sospel and Nice.

SR80 / SS17 / SS4 : Teramo - Rieti ( Gran Sasso )

Lazio/Abruzzi > Italy > Europe
February 10, 2006 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

Take S 80 out of or into Teramo. This takes you through the Gran Sasso National Park region. Wonderful scenery, great riding and a fair selection of places to stay.

SS65 / Passo della Futa : Bologna - Firenze

Umbria/Toscana/Marche > Italy > Europe
February 9, 2006 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.2

Take the S 65 From Bologna south. This is, I believe, one of Ducati's test routes and if you ride it you'll understand why their bikes handle so well. There are plenty of interesting side roads to investigate as well.

D465 / Col du Ballon d'Alsace : Fresse-sur-Moselle - Giromagny

Alsace > France > Europe
April 12, 2005 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.3

This is a wonderful ride through beautiful scenery. This part of France is no on most peoples touring agenda and is, perhaps, all the better for it. Explore this whole area, it's fun.

D486 : Gérardmer - Le Thillot

Alsace > France > Europe
April 12, 2005 - 3 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.5

A pleasant ride through the Vosges Mountains, links nicely to the Ballon'dAlsace

D417 / Col de La Schlucht : La Schlucht - Munster

Alsace > France > Europe
April 12, 2005 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.8

The Western section close to Munster is fairly ordinary, the best part is the rise up into the mountains to the Col de la Schluct. If you're heading into France from Southern Germany, this is one of the best ways to do it! It also links nicely to another route, Gerardmer to La Bresse over the Ballon d'Alsace.

463 Pforzheim - Nagold

Baden-Württemberg > Germany > Europe
April 12, 2005 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

A pleasant road following a river valley through wooded, hilly countryside. Some nice bends as well. An enjoyable ride!

N103 : Braga - Bragança

Northern Portugal > Portugal > Europe
February 23, 2005 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.5

Route 103 in Northern Portugal runs from Braga in the West to Braganca in the East. About 200 kilometres of absolutely stunning mountain road. Traffic is generally light and the road surface, by and large, is excellent. Chaves, about half way, makes a nice stop off point and the opportunity to refuel self and bike. The western section is largely fast, open sweepers, the eastern has a lot more tight and twisty stuff. Ride it, you'll love it!
