My picks:

West: The former Rt 666 is known today as the Coronado Trail Scenic Byway in Arizona, you get twisties and view in one LONG ride, 265 miles, you can start at the bottom and it is 70 degrees and hit mountains with snow at the top. Some of the views just took my breath away, and my bikes breath away too, carbs dont like thin air lol.

In the south: the Snake or Cherohala Skyway, nice sweepers great for cars.

The Dragon is great if you have a little roadster, not a lot of views, but a lot of technical turns, my SL felt like a boat, so I ditched her and took the bike. I think a newer model would have been fine though, have yet to see a Benz on the Gap, but the vette club, mini club, miata and a lot of Japanese little cars are always out there messing with us motorcyclists, and some of them little cars are FAST!!

East coast, VA has some roads that take you out to places where you think you would hear banjos playing!! But the views!! The roads out in the Midlothian area are great, you see some great scenery, beautiful houses and the roads are in perfect condition.

You have missed the Bornite 500E.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
