For the Western US riders, Logan Canyon in Logan Utah. 180+ turns in 45 miles through the Rockies. Absolutely gorgeous ride, hard technical sections are slow, but have 2 lanes so you can pass. Fast easy sections are really fast, tons of pull offs everywhere, Ski resorts, camping spots, cabins, fishing, hunting, dirt biking, caving, hiking, you name it, all right off the canyon. I actually prefer it to the Dragon. WAAAAAAAAY less traffic.

Cherohala is an easy ride. Fast or slow. First time I went up it we spent 3 hours in the dark looking for the trail that leads to the big fire tower up there. It was really fun. Lot's of pull offs and smooth curves.

Be sure youre not low on gas b/c theres nary a gas station or anything else on this scenic 50 mile trip thru the mtns

Sometimes theres photogs taking pix on the curves. Remember what time you rode past them so u can look up your pix online after the ride

I have some friends from up around that area who've mentioned the Skyway. I may have to run it when I go visit. I love that area. I may not come back.

robbinsville is a great place to ride. in this little speck of a town you are 30 minutes from the Dragon (318 curves in 11 miles) which is fairly dangerous because of other drivers that want to run 90+ mph and just dont pay attention. And 30 minutes from the Skyway which is a GREAT road. awesome views espically if you take a left (coming from the TN side) at the gap where there is a small parking lot and head down the paved road. you go by rattler ford and to what we call the run around. there is 2 roads there, one goes to the left to the run around where you can hike and things and the right goes around avery branch and all the way around santeetlah lake. Fontana Village is a great place to stay if you are a fan of the dragon

There's a avalanche coming and I do not feel prepared
