I vote southern Utah. It has it all, and for any style of riding beit sportbike, cruiser, tourer, dual sport or single track.

Good thread Jim. I'll toss in a multi day trip on US Rt "sweet" 16 through WV. Pick it up at St Mary's, OH and then south to Mouth of Wilson, VA. A good stop along the way is Hawks Nest St Park. At the. southern end, I scoot over to the BRP on Rt 58 for a stop over at Willville Moto Camp, In Meadows of Dan, VA.

The Ozarks in Arkansas has some pretty good roads. The only negative is that you should plan on burning through a set of tires. There is something about the roads there that just love to eat rubber.

UTAH is one of my preferred choices, you can go around Utah from either west to east or v s, and go north to south v s, and be sure to take your time because there are more places to visit than you have time specially if you off road.

Upstate SC. Within striking distance of WNC but without the hillbillyness and high gas prices.

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.

Only Half of Arkansas looks like that... Get over in the Ozark area... there are some hidden jems there. One road nicknamed the Arkansas Dragon is pretty good. Just as tight in some sections as the dragon and long legged sweepers in other sections plus its much longer... 50 miles instead of 13. Great Ride!!!

Peel Ferry and MO-125 is probably my favorite road in the area. Along with Scenic 7 in AR - Although it can be busy with tourists, it has some great views.

Leaving out of Pueblo, CO (that sounds great all by itself!), take 96 West to Wetmore. Stay on 96 West up over the Wet Mountains towards Westcliffe, CO. As you crest the last hill past the Wet Mountains, hold on to your handlebars, because the horizon opens up into an incredible grassy plain with the next range of Rocky Mountains streched from north to south. Really, I have trouble keeping it on the road.

After you get to Westcliffe (a lovely town with a few good shops, restaurants, and bars), take 69 North (really runs north-west) towards 50. From the intersection of 69 and 50, you have a choice: west towards Salida, or east to Canon City. Either way is cool, because 50 follows the Arkansas River as it makes its way out of the Rockies. Plenty of twisties and sweepers. And both towns are stunning.

For the more adventurous, take 50 East towards Canon City, and just east of Canon, find Phantom Canyon Road (north), an awesome dirt road through incredible rock formations and tunnels carved for the small guage railroad of yesteryear. PCR will run you into Cripple Creek, and finally, to I-24, if you've had enough and want to make your way back to Pueblo.

Have fun.
