Every motorcyclist has their own list of the best roads they’ve ever ridden, as well as some ideas of some great roads they hope to ride some day. I mean, you didn’t buy that Suzuki Boulevard C50T to let it sit in the garage, did you? That bike wants to go places! Wouldn’t it be nice to have a definitive list of the best roads in the country so you might even make some plans to hit them?
Well, thanks to the folks at the American Motorcyclist Association, that list has been compiled. They asked their members to vote on which roads they consider the best and a list of the top 15 motorcycle roads in the U.S. is what resulted.
Many of the roads on the list are what you would expect. The Tail of the Dragon in North Carolina is on there, in the No. 3 spot, and the Pacific Coast Highway is there as No. 5. Voted the best road of them all is the Beartooth Highway up in Wyoming and Montana. I’ve been on the PCH and the Beartooth and I can confirm they belong there. But there are some roads you’ve probably never heard of, and that’s one of the beauties of this list. It gives you new destinations to dream about.
