Tail of the Dragon
This is a Tallahassee classic that moves along US Route 129. The 11-mile long motorcycling route looks exactly like a curved tail of a dragon, hence the name. It is also known as Deal’s Gap and has earned the accolade of being the best motorbiking route in America. There are 300 awesome curves waiting to testing your riding skills. The Copperhead Corner and the Gravity Cavity are one of the most popular spots at this place. The speed limit is only 35mph, but you get to move to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Pacific Coast Highway
Also known as the Big Sur, the coastal highway in California offers you some of the most breathtaking views of the coastline. You can move through the beautiful redwood forests, with trees several feet tall towering over your head or just enjoy the scenic view from the cliffs. It is a 120-mile-long stretch that can offer you a visual treat along the coast. Note that the Pacific Coast Highway covers the Californian coast almost entirely. You will be moving from Oregon border to Malibu. It remains foggy in the summers, so don’t forget to carry a jacket along.
If you are in Texas, it will be a blunder to miss the Twisted Sisters route. It is a collection of some of the best motorcycling roads in Texas located in the Texas Hill Country and Ranch Roads 335, 336 and 337. This route is not difficult at all. In fact, it is frequented by beginners and amateurs very frequently. Don’t discount the beauty of this place just because of the ease of driving. This 100-mile route takes you through the great ranches of Texas and several hills and gorges. There are some great stops along the way, including a motorcycle museum. What’s more? You can glide through 65 curves in a 15-mile stretch along this road.
Blue Ridge Parkway
This route is iconic for a reason- several battle sites of the Civil War days can be found on the countryside. If you are serious about motorbiking, this route is a must go for you. The parkway moves along Virginia and North Carolina.
The scenery is so beautiful you may even want to camp here. However, the sweeping curves will call you for a ride. The speed limit is only 45mph here but you will get awe-inspiring views of the Great Smoky Mountains from here. The ride is 469 miles long and you may take at least three days to conquer the route.
