only photo i could find to show the hills and water

When do you go to Deals Gap? I go out with a large group every June, and try to make it back out during the autumn (love the rides when the foliage starts to change and open up).

Ah... sorry, I misread that.

Might be best to trailer there and enjoy the roads on the bike. I go at least once a year and trailer two or three bikes (I enjoy sight seeing out there more than riding with my knee on the ground).

Definitely a lot of good road out there to explore.

The best curves I've ever riden... are GMR. Around southern california, everyone knows it. Pretty intense place to ride. Lots of fast cars out there and lots of riders. If you youtube it, its pretty easy to find crashes and cruises up there.

Grattan Raceway outside of Grand Rapids, MI!

I don't usually drag a knee on public roads (what could go wrong?) but the best roads I have ridden are the canyons around Boulder, Colorado. Buena Vista, CO also...hell, anywhere in CO!

Also, route 202/9 between NH and VT is awesome. :-)

Tough question!
