4. Shady Valley, Tn. This area easily
gives Deal's Gap a run for it's money.
Not as well known, so mostly just locals
(a couple of ex-WERA guys)riding there.

My favorite, since I live 25 miles from there! US421- Over 250 curves in 20 miles. Not quite Deal's Gap....

I second the Ohio twisties. There ARE some sweet ones down here. Route 691 in Nelsonville is 11 miles of nothing but 30 mph curves, freshly paved and no gravel. I bet it doesn't compare to the Gap, but you make due with what you have.

Pete: Move it to wherever you feel it belongs. Thanks for the heads up.

Cool

Best place to ride in the Youngstown/Boardman, Ohio area:

Mill Creek State Park -
Radar jammer/detector required

Mill Creek is where I do most of my peg-scratching, wheel spinning, excessive leaning, and scaring the s**t out of my girlfriend ...hehe Just gotta watch for the "park police" when doing 65 thru twisties in a park with a 25mph speed limit...! Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that pavement sealer in the rain SUCKS!!!

For those in San Diego area, try Sunrise HWY to Julian to Mesa Grande to Palomar MT South Grade rd then come down the backside or Eastgrade road, back to Santa Ysabel then south to Ramona where you'll turn left to Wildcat Canyon then finally out to I-8 for ride home. Bitchin Ride...

For out here in South Eastern PA there ain't
much. But about 2 hours away in Shamokin PA
there is a road 125 the runs up and down a
small mountain. IT IS A RACETRACK ON THE
STREET. Hairpins right into triple s' blah
blah blah... Check out Geoff's post in
Tales from the Street about "A weekend of
Sunshine" it's really well written and it's
a good true story too.

125!!!!!!!

In TX, I'd have to say that 46 is too easy and that 337west and 336north from 16 out of Bandera and 16 north from Medina to Kerrville are much curvier and way more challenging to even experienced riders.
But then again, I do like those tight curves and not so much the 100+ sleepers I meant sweepers

Thumbs up

The ride up Hwy. 82 over 12,000 ft. Independence Pass in Colorado is as close to riding in the Swiss Alps as I've ridden. twist, turns and kinks, awsome views and pure Rocky Mnt. greatness. Probably not as "twisty" as a lot of the mountain backroads in the South Eastern US but the combination of everyhing make it a road I try to ride "every year".

I know you mean public roads but I got on the track at Road America!Was supposed to be a "parade lap" but quickly turned into a free for all when the pace car never materialized.Beautiful 4.5 mile track with elevation changes and 14 turns.My favorite was Canada corner....your coming off the back straight at 100mph(175 on a race bike) and sweep into a sharp right hander....sliding the back end then back on the gas thru an uphill s turn....under the bridge into the last turn and NAIL it up the front straight!
