Indy Road Dog wants to know Dino or Syn?
I'll throw in a few great ones: US 129 (Dragon), Cherahola, Going to the Sun Road Glacier NP in Montana - doesn't get anymore scenic than that, 93/35 loop around Flathead Lake in Montana, TX170 along the Rio Grande, The "Threes" in Texas Hill Country, TX166/TX118 loop west of Ft. Davis, New Mexico 152. There are so many roads to list and most everyone knows of some great roads in their area. That's what I love about everyone throwing them on here. Now, I've got more roads to checkout. Please keep 'em coming.

sublime is reading this now saying WTF is this?
Face it... This is a beautiful country with so many interesting places to see that I doubt ANY of us will be able to honestly make a fair attempt at a top ten list. I have ridden most of the West Coast, some large chunks of Nevada and Idaho.. Two routes to Sturgis (one there and a different coming home) and I have to say I have barely scratched the surface on two wheels. Maybe by the time I am 60 I will have scratched the surface. I doubt I will have the time on this planet to see all of the US from the back of my motorcycle. I am going to try... I'd love to take three months off and ride up to Alaska, down through Canada, down in to Michigan then over to New York / Niagra falls, down the East Coast to Florida, then back across the Southern states to get him.. That sounds like a beautiful dream to me.

Hwy 101 I would say anywhere north of Legget.

Hwy 299 from 101 to I-5 the entire ride is great.

Hwy 36 is also a beautiful ride.
Eric, are you going to redwood run?

Hwy 49 from Jamestown thru the backwoods past Angels Camp to Hwy 88 in Jackson then up to Lake Tahoe is one of he most beautiful rides I've seen. Also coming from Virginia City then over Hwy 50 to Lake Tahoe is awesome!!

If you like curves and beautiful country to boot (Sonoran Desert to high Alpine country) Highway 191 (the old 666 Devil's Hwy) from Clifton, AZ to Alpine, AZ, is hard to beat...makes Dragon's Tail seem tame (I've ridden it)...over 450 curves in apx 95 miles...very little traffic. After overnighting in Alpine, AZ you can head over to Show Low, AZ and either head down Hwy 77 through the Salt River Canyon to Globe, AZ, for more twisties fun, or you can take Hwy 260 through the Mogollon Rim country to Payson, AZ and Hwy 87 down into Phoenix, AZ, for a nice ride through the sweepers, Ponderosa Pines and back to the Sonoran Desert. It's a GREAT ride for those that like outstanding scenery and challenge along the way! I'm treating a buddy from Palm Springs to the ride this weekend...can't wait!

Without mention of the Beartooth Highway in Montana/Wyoming and the Blue Ridge Parkway, not much of a list . . . .

I'll have to say that the riding here in the middle of the Arkansas/Missouri Ozarks is awesome. Have a bro in Maine and it's georgeous up there too, we just have a longer riding season here in north-central Arkansas. Come see us!

I don't know enough about the whole country, but Highway 49, 299 and coastal 1 are absolutely unreal rides out here in California.

Some of these sure look interesting though, it might be time to go one some longer rides.

Those are some incredible rides. Not to mention 120 in to Yosemite via Tioga Pass and up over to Nevada. Spectacular views abound.

Ride up the east coast into Maine and out to Acadia National Park in the fall ... it's beautiful.

Adding on to one of Indy Dog's routes, Route 93 along Flathead Lake and right into Idaho...Rt 93 traces the Salmon River for miles through some amazingly beautiful gorges...there should be a sign at the Idaho border that reads, "Welcome to Idaho, America's Best Kept Scenic Secret"...Glacier was amazing, Beartooth is always incredible as is Chief Joseph...
