4. California State Route 58

011515-top-10-places-ride-04-Hwy-58

What Highway 58 loses in scenery it makes up for in thrilling, near-racetrack-like cornering. The middle portion through California’s Central Valley is comprised of long, triple-digit straights with a set of roller coaster hills on the East end that’ll test your bravery. Both ends are capped off with miles of undulating, serpentine pavement with minimal traffic and law enforcement. This is part of MO’s annual route to Laguna Seca for attending the MotoGP races – when there were GPs at Laguna Seca (why aren’t we going to WSB?).
