Some west coast classics that were missed:

Highway 99 in BC, 31A in BC, FS 25 in WA, Highway 242 in OR, highway 20 in WA, Highway 224/FS46 in OR.



Some of those aren't in the US, but let's face it, anyone who wants to claim that the US has the best roads probably hasn't travelled much, makes me think they've never heard of the Alps.

341/Push Mountain Rd/the "AR Gap" and its switchbacks and decreasing radius curves, and a general-lack of Enforcement is another one not to be missed if you get to this area. It's just off 7, I've ridden through there many times. Stop for a lunch at The Cliff House; really good food.

For anyone that's in the area, the Ohio River Scenic Byway across southern Indiana between Evansville and Louisville is a great ride. Not much traffic, lots of curves, great scenery, and excellent pavement make it a nice trip.



I ride parts of it when I have to head to the Louisville area for work, though that will be on hold for a while since a lady pulled out in front of me this past Monday and took out my new (to me) 2002 Suzuki Bandit 1200. Oh well, at least I got a good two weeks out of the bike before the accident. On the bright side, that means I get to go bike shopping again!

Florence Avenue between the Harbor freeway & Aviation Blvd.



Don't forget to stop at Oklahoma Smokearoma for the hot links.



Reginald Denny gives it four stars.
