Thought it might be nice to have a thread on the best ride in your local area just for fun and for reference for future trips. I'm in North Vancouver Canada and the Best local ride here is the 99 (Sea to Sky Highway) north to Sqwamish or even up to Whistler. This road was twined for the 2010 olympics and its twisty and Fast. Lost of Sport bikes and Few 9's. You have to watch out for the Mounties, they always get there Man or at least they try :D

Hey bud,

Just south of the border in Bellingham you have Chuckanut Drive... twisty along the water. Then you have Hwy 9 from Bellingham down south as far as you want to take it.

Then you have the run over to Winthrop, and you can make it a loop around to Wenatchee and back across Steven Pass then back up I5 to home.

Just a couple I can think of right now.

Good luck!

My favorate ride is the Little Dragon

Crossing the Corydon Indiana bridge from Brandenburg, KY you take your first right onto Rt. 11. It's VERY Curvey and you parallel the Ohio River. The road has corners that sneak up on you so you have to be really careful, lots of hairpins too. It also has some whoop de do's and if your not careful and going too fast when crest some of them you come right out of your seat. I've been airborne a a few occasions. There are a few straights were you can take your beast to redline. I've had mine up to 147 MPH with some throttle left. You go through a few small towns that date back to the 1800's. It also takes you past the boat in Elizabeth, Indiana. It's a good place to stop and take a break, gamble or just get something to eat.

If you continue into New Albany, Indiana you take your first left going back toward Corydon. It too is VERY CURVEY with a beautiful scenec view of the Ohio River. This road has ALOT of long sweeping curves and you pass through yet again more small towns where you can take a break. When you eventually get in Corydon you pass through the historic town and continue into Leavenworth, Indiana. When you get there that are a number of places to stop, take a break and eat. My favorate is the Overlook Restrauant. It's a Restruant/Sports Bar about 800 feet high off a curve in the Ohio River, very scenec.

When your ready to go home you turn around going back into Corydon taking your first left. This a 14 mile straight stretch that takes you back over Corydon Indiana bridge and back into Brandenburg, KY. Here again it's 14 miles of straight road allowing you to open the beast up and she what she really has. The whole trip from start to finish takes a few hours. It's a blast. If your ever in the area give me a call at (270) 766-7711 and I'll take you on a tour of the Little Dragon.

Doesn't it suck to have to ride 500 miles to get to a good road to ride?:dontknow:
But I have to agree, other than US 1 there just isn't much around PSJ.
As for here, I really enjoy and little loop around the Keystone area, From 315 and SR100 in Grandin, go north to 214, left to SR 100, left to 214, right to end, jog right to next left, follow around Lake Sante Fe. Then back to 100, right into Keystone. Great ride, nice elevation changes, good curvy roads, light traffic and decent speed limits.

Yeah it sucks, (640 miles not counting the ride into TN). Occasionally I ride over to the nearby airport road that has a few 90's so I can scrape off the chicken strips; my 12 year old sons says if feels like I'm going to scape the mirrors off when he rides with me.

Oh well - cheap thrills. At least I can ride year-round. :joke:

Next time we post a ride up this way you should try to make it. Contrary to popular belief there is some good riding in FL.
It is about 100 miles from here to Dixie Crossroads.
We have some cool rides, I like to go to Micanopy thru Crosscreek, these are areas near Ocala. Good twisty backroads.
