What are great places and states (OTHER THAN CA) to ride?

Just so we can actually get a little information about places other than California on great riding roads, put yours here.

Personally I have a couple loops within half an hour of Northern Virginia that I love year round.

Post your own, except California, there is a thread for that state!

I don't know why. All of Arkansas looks like this:


Nothing to see here. California is the best. Everyone should ride in California and not waste thier time here in fly-over country...

The problem with regional forums is that I don't just ride in one region.

I don't hate CA, I just am tired of one man's crusade to convince everyone it is utopia, even though he doesn't live there.

This thread gives everyone a chance without being attacked!

Idaho

Pretty much anywhere in Idaho except I84 from east to west. The ride from Idaho Falls up through the Bitterroots to Northern Idaho/Montana is breathtaking. The ride from Idaho Falls through the Driggs Basin, over the pass and into Jackson Hole will be worth it. If you like long-distance off-road riding, you can ride for 200 miles through the Owyhee Mountains in Southern Idaho, best in the fall when the roads are dry and the rattlers are cold. A ride up Highway 95 from South to North is well worth it, but watch out for deer. A ride from Boise or Twin Falls up through the Sawtooths - simply a must before you die. Be careful for deer and elk, though. I actually saw a guy die who hit a deer on that road. Very sad for him and the deer. Wow, I need to ride more. I'm making myself depressed thinking of all the rides I still have not done in this amazing state.

I live in S.E. Idaho, and while we have some great DS riding, NORTH Idaho is where it's at if you want twisty pavement. Just pick about any non-superslab road, and it's good (but even I-90 from St. Regis to Cda is pretty good). Just watch out for logging trucks.

Don't forget Hwy 12, Lola pass, One of the most spectacular scenic routes in existence, and the Lola motorway for the more adverturous.
