Good for HD and it's riders, but to me good roads are kind of like your secret fishing spot.



I'm not telling anyone about'm.

It's a great idea and a good start. The site is easy to use, offers good information about each road in a clear manner, etc.. (e.x. travel times and amenities, etc..)



Only thing it needs is more and more roads. It looks like it's got less then 50. If it had 1000 it'd be priceless, and maybe it will in time.



This is a great use of the web, and a great contrast to say HRCA, which stupidly puts very similar information in the magazine but leaves it off the website. (Which I then throw away!)

The beauty of motorcycling is not about being told where to go or whatÂ’s best, itÂ’s about the adventure and the personal discovery in getting there.

I had a great time riding the skyline parkway over the shenendaoah valey, (I think its misspelled) anyways the only silver lining to sharing this increadable road with 30 some odd harleys and their deafening cacaphony of 20 mph rolling road block was I could hear them coming in time to exit whatever scenic vista pulloff I was enjoying and be on my way before I got stuck behind em. I was by no means driving recklessly, but I think to enjoy those kind of curves you got to be doing 40 through em, i see no need to decelerate to 10 mph to make it around a corner, just as it is foolish to accelerate to 100 between corners, fun as it may be.

I guess had I really been flying it would have not matered, I would have blown their sadlebags off around the next blind curve, but then I allways wonder if karma will be waiting with a buick to spoil my day. guess I will continue to pull off when trafic impedes my fun factor.

Oh, I almost missed my point, If you have a great road DON'T TELL ANYONE!!!! before you know it, it will be drowning in cruisers and squids, and the cops that negative attention atracts. enjoy it for yourself, maybe a couple of friends, and go ahead and forward those road sugestions to me.



Before the HD crowd lights off their flame throwers, do not missunderstand me, I have nothing against you or your right to enjoy the same roads I do, I just prefer to not be crawling along behind you sucking exhaust. besides the only thing my bike does well at 20 mph besides stop is accelerate or wheelie, sometimes both at once.

Hmmmmm.... I can't figure this one out.



"Maybe if we make them think they're actually participating in something that actually requires them to stay on their bikes longer! Longer rides! Higher odometer readings! Faster trade-ins!"

I think this is a great idea. Knowing where the good riding locations are when you are taking a trip far from home is nice.

And maybe all the previous arrogant harley haters will check it out too so they can stay the hell away from me when I'm out enjoying a ride.
