Big Tujunga to Newcomb's is one of my favorites! I like the chicken quesadillas. The ex-girlfriend lives a little too close to the entrance in Sunland though so I've been avoiding it lately. I'm always afriad she's gonna mow me down.

Do you mean 19 to 60 to 180 to 129?



One of those great places is T.W.O. (Two Wheels Only). Not to be missed, if you're ever in that area. Grab a Big-Assed Burger(tm), then sit on the porch with the rest of the monkeys & benchrace motorbikes whilst watching some of the rarest and most-interesting bikes (and people!) on the road roll through...........

I live in LA and here's one I ride 2 hours just to get to. Take the 10 east out to Banning. Get lost and find out for yourself - that's what I did. There's a loop out there from the 243 to the 74 that it heavenly. The 74 especially going up the mountains in Mountain Center is crazy good. Fresh asphalt with the roads slightly banked. Oh sweet Jimminy! I dream of being on that road. My nightmares involve the same road and RVs that won't pull over however.

If there are so many fantastic roads in the USA, why the obsession with cruisers ??

Because to get to them, you need a cruiser. Otherwise, your tires will be gone by the time you arrive.



I went through 2 rears and a front by the time I got to California. I could have waited another 1200 miles to replace them, but then I would have been in Colorado, who knows how availablitly was, and then I'd have bought tires just to go straight through Nebraska and Iowa. May as well spend now and enjoy to fun, right?



If I were to make a cross country trip again, I do it on that Moto Guzzi California Vintage. That's a good looking bike if you ask me.

Default Best California MOtorcycle Roads

Sacramento to Foresthill, Mosquito Ridge Road over to French Meadows to eleven pines to Wentworth springs down to Georgetown. 50 Miles of isolated bliss.

Well, there's always Ortega but so many LEOs. I ride about halfway up, then enter a private drive towards my sister's horse ranch. Climbs from 1000' to 2700' in about 2.7 miles. VERY technical, with blind switchbacks, and only 1.5 lanes wide. Paved, but stick to the rignt most 3', since the inevitable SUV will suddenly appear coming right at you! I know that I don't want to the new hood ornament!



KTM Duke is the weapon of choice, mostly 2nd and 3rd gear action...
