Not US, but have to mention the Cabot Trail in Nova Scotia. Wow.

I'm sure a few of these have been mentioned.

Hwy 36 in California from Red Bluff to the coast may be the best motorcycle road in the US.

Though the 2 lane from Hanksville to Hurricane Utah may give it a run for it's money. It goes through so many National and State parks and monuments I lost count.

The Blue Ridge has to be up on anyone list. Try it in the spring when the dogwoods bloom and the tourists aren't around much.

Any of the Alphabet Roads in the driftless area of Southwestern Wisconsin will blow you away. Every county has thousands of miles of paved roads winding through the farms, hills, valleys, coulees and little towns and we owe it all to milk.

Hwy 26 from Copper Harbor to Eagle River Michigan in the Upper Peninsula. Curves and incredible views along Lake Superior shoreline.

Goodness, I forgot the 36! Add the 85 mile highway 211 down to the coast then back up into the mountains and through Humbolt Redwoods State Park and you have the most scenic trip on the planet.

Man, this is becoming interesting. What a bunch of great ideas for future rides. Makes me want to ride them all-someday.

No particular order for the rest but I have to vote Hwy 1 as numero uno.

Hwy 1 <----------- Heaven on 2 wheels - my favorite section is up from the coast up to Leggett

Lolo Pass
Beartooth & Chief Joseph
Anywhere in UT
89 in AZ
AlCan from Watson Lake to Whitehorse
The scenery on the road to Stewart/Hyder
CA 58, 36, 33, 89, 96 and many more
BRP mid-week in the off season
101 Oregon Coast
Maine coast
Lots of cool roads in SE BC as well

I have to say one of my most favorites ever was the road between Watson Lake and Whitehorse at speed: 258 miles of perfect sweepers(and no Mounties):

That's a sweet road. Reminds me of some roads in Austria.

And I'd like to second that the Alaska highway is a boring motorcycling road, and it's mostly not in the US. I mean, the interest isn't the technical aspect of motorcycling, it's the scenery.

335, 336, and 337 in the Texas Hill Country - the Three Sisters. Loved it.

My absolute favorite road right now is Vanocker Canyon Road. It's mostly sweepers and isn't real technical but it sets my heart on fire every time I fling the KLR through it (so long as there aren't any Harleys in the way )

I am amazed a rider would call the Alaska Highway as boring. Apparently you drove it with your eyes closed. Agreed, alot of it is is Canada, but over-all as a ride it is pretty nice in my book. The part in Canada is also some of the most beautiful but you know that already.
