Over the course of my 25 years riding a motorcycle, I’ve traveled a lot of amazing roads in the western part of the U.S. My favorites have one thing in common: they all encompass that magical formula of incredible scenery combined with pavement that twists and turns enough to keep a motorcycle rider excited, and a photographer in their glory!
I’m often asked which roads are my favorite to ride on a motorcycle. Well, here are four that I recommend you do sometime in your motorcycling life. Take my advice and add them to your bucket list if you’ve not done so already. I’m a scenery gal so these are rated in order by which has the most incredible vistas witnessed from the motorcycle saddle. Hold on and pay attention to the road though!
