North Fork Road

AK - Denali/Southeast Fai... > Alaska > United States > America
July 2, 2020 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

Part of this road is gravel/dirt, but should be fine for any street bike, as long as you don't mind your bike getting a bit of dirt on it. A nice road with flowing corners and scenic views (rode this during the summer). Highly recommend if touring into Homer.

Top of the World - US side

AK - Yukon-Koyukuk/Fairba... > Alaska > United States > America
July 1, 2020 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

This paved section of Top of the World Hwy is accessible only by 20 miles or so of dirt/gravel road. For that reason, i'd say it's a great route for ADV bikes. But once you get there, it is outstanding - amazing views on incredible smooth blacktop. This was one of the highlights of my ADV trip to Alaska.

East End Road

AK - Denali/Southeast Fai... > Alaska > United States > America
July 1, 2020 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

The upper portion of this road is outstanding pavement, with incredible scenery of the mountains across Katchemak Bay. However, the last few miles down to the beach are absolutely for ADV bikes ONLY (or dual sport) - this last stretch is slippery gravel roads around many sharp corners, and then a very steep descent to the coast. Honestly there's no way I could have gone back up the hill on a sport machine or cruiser. But ride the amazing road until it turns to gravel, then turn around at that point. ADV/dual sport should absolutely continue to the beach.

Lower Rock Creek Rd

CA - Santa Cruz/Santa cla... > California > United States > America
May 24, 2020 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

If you're on a motorcycle and you're not trying to make time, why would you bother riding 395 when you can take this epic, curvy scenic route. Super fun, open corners, and beautiful scenery.


Rock Creek Road

CA - Santa Cruz/Santa cla... > California > United States > America
May 24, 2020 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

Very pretty scenery on this out and back run - highly worthwhile if passing through the area. Could have a lot of tourists up there but still worth it. May be closed seasonally.


South Lake Road

CA - Santa Cruz/Santa cla... > California > United States > America
May 24, 2020 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

Very scenic and curvy out and back off CA168


CA168 Lake Sabrina

CA - Santa Cruz/Santa cla... > California > United States > America
May 24, 2020 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

Fast, mostly open corners, and great scenery. This is a great quick out and back to a scenic lake if passing through Bishop. Weekends during high season could be crowded.


Fv207 Haroya to Finoya - breakwater roadway

Sor-Trondelag/More og Rom... > Norway > Europe
January 18, 2020 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

This road is not easy to get to, but very scenic and you drive along a roadway built on top of a breakwater that connects the island of Haroya to Finoya. Incredible biking road. One of my favorite sights in Norway.

You take several ferries to get out there and return. If you like Ferries, this is a must.


Gorge De Galamus

Languedoc-Roussillon > France > Europe
October 15, 2019 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

This short section is built into the side of a cliff - fantastic motorcycle road, a must see.

Buffalo Pass (Indian Rte 13)

NM - SanJuan/McKinley/Cib... > New Mexico > United States > America
September 15, 2019 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

This route is incredibly varied terrain in a short distance. Red Valley is red rock desert to start, then suddenly the road goes from 70mph straights down to 25mph sharp corners climbing up the mountain (buffalo pass), very scenic mountain road with a few views at the top. Continuing west you drop down the back side of the pass, and right into a Arizona red rock canyon. Fantastic rocks and walls, amazing. If you're in the Four Corners area, I highly recommend this stretch of road. Road surface was very good, no gravel but obviously keep your eyes peeled if it's been raining.

Check weather before going, I rode in September and assume it would be snowed in or closed in the winter.

US64 Carson National Forest

NM - SanJuan/McKinley/Cib... > New Mexico > United States > America
September 15, 2019 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

Beautiful stretch of mountain highway, up over 10k' elevation, so maybe only for spring, summer, early fall? The highway passes through many mountain valleys and by beautiful meadows. it's very scenic through here, my favorite part of US64.


Harris Grade Road : Mission Hills

CA - San Luis Obispo/Kern... > California > United States > America
February 28, 2019 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

Great brief section of 2-lane highway that goes over the mountain, fun curves and nice scenery also.


Nacimiento Fergusson Rd : Hwy 1 - Fort Hunter Liggett

CA - Monterey/San Benito/... > California > United States > America
November 23, 2010 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.7

This road is the only route east from PCH1 between Carmel and Cambria. From Hwy1 it climbs and twists its way up the mountain giving the most spectacular Big Sur coastline views imaginable. On a clear day, it is stunning.

For the most part, Nacimiento-Ferguson Road is a wide single track with switchbacks leading over the coastal range into a winding canyon to the Army Fort Hunter-Ligget. To ride on the base, you must show motorcycle license and proof of insurance. The road has no police presence unless you are on the base and are US military, not State.

On the base there is a great place to stay, the Hacienda and value for money, excellent bar, breakfast but no dinner. Bring some deli eats and there are microwaves in the rooms.

There is a cafe within walking distance (closes early), bowling and cinema plus a well restored Franciscan Mission. A bonus is one of 3 petrol stations in the entire Big Sur region and government prices per gallon the cheapest in the state.

One my favourite rides in California.

Leaving Grangeville on ID13 it quickly joins ID14 for a fun, twisty climb to Elk City.


Sherman Pass Road (Kernville to Kennedy Meadows

CA - San Luis Obispo/Kern... > California > United States > America
March 10, 2018 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

This is a great route through a high-elevation mountain pass (9200' elevation). Probably best for Supermoto, sport bikes, or touring/adventure bikes, but you could ride anything if you are up for a lot of curves. When you start up the mountain, it is all curves and somewhat narrow. The road is probably closed in winter (likely through May or June), so check the season and weather before you go. But it's great views, almost no one up there (when we went in October), and a fun route! Kennedy Meadows store has gas too.

Gravel/Sand: we encountered light sand on some corners, and slid around a bit, so be careful and watch the roadway for hazards.

Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest

CA - Santa Cruz/Santa cla... > California > United States > America
July 12, 2017 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

This fun out-and-back route is the road to the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest - a twisty, steeply-climbing mountain road, with a drop-off on one side. Scenery is amazing, but keep your eyes on the road! Corners sneak up on you, but a very fun, entertaining route. You may end up behind a slow-moving tourist car, but it is still worth the views on the way up. Take a short hike when you get to the top, around the Bristlecone Pines. Very nice route.


Benton Crossing Rd

CA - Santa Cruz/Santa cla... > California > United States > America
July 12, 2017 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

Benton Crossing is very scenic, and not a lot of cars out there. Nice cruiser road, high speed and fun corners, and gorgeous views!

July 28, 2016 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

Scenic country cruise through farm lands, then into Silver Falls which is dense Oregon forest. Lots of great twists in the park, but a fair amount of tourist traffic to watch out for. If you are willing to take a short hike to North Falls, it is simply stunning - you can walk in a cave behind the falls (see photo below).

Passing over Lake Oroville and round Flea Mountain, this scenic North-Eastern heading route is worth a look.

NM24 : Weed - Dunken

June 1, 2016 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

State Hwy 24 in New Mexico is not to be missed. I stumbled upon this on my GPS screen and decided to check it out. The eastern half is country roads through high desert landscape, and the western half (closer to Cloudcroft) is forest and curvy mountain road. Super fun for any type of bike, and gorgeous scenery. A+

Mount St Helens Highway

WA - GraysHarbor/Thurston/Pier... > Washington > United States > America
June 28, 2013 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

This ride out to Mt St Helens and back - either for northbound or southbound riders on Highway 5 - is very scenic and a great road, practicallly *made* for motorcycles. Nice long curving corners, nothing surprises you. A gorgeous ride, and beautiful views of Mt St Helens when you get to the end. Go all the way up to the visitor center and go in and watch the movie/see the exhibits. Incredible place - the volcano is amazing!

Port Angeles to Cape Flattery

WA - SanJuan/Whatcom/Skagit/Sn... > Washington > United States > America
June 28, 2013 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

Very nice coastal run up to the tip of the Olympic Peninsula. Curvy road mostly in the forest, be careful if roads are wet - there is moss growing on the roads near the end of the route.

When you get to the end, you definitely want to hike out the Cape Flattery Trail out to the lands end where there are amazing views of sea caves, the island, birds, seals, etc. Gorgeous area and a nice hike through dense, lush rainforest. Dont miss it!
