  • Motorcycle Roads

    When planning a weekend ride I've tried a few spots to see what decent roads are around. The place that does OK for me is www.motorcycleroads.com but there must be other ones also.

    Just wondering what other sites people use.

    I never plan a ride. I just get on and go! I try and stay to roads with the least traffic.

      I like the dog. If he can't eat it or f**k it, he pisses on it. I can get behind that

        Out here in the west of Canada and USA we have an organization called Destination Highways who produce books specifically for the motorcycle rider. The books are dedicated to areas such as British Columbia, Washington state, Northern California etc...The books are written by riders who travel the routes and offer information about the routes including road conditions, points of interest, food and rest areas, etc, etc. The books are $45.00 Cdn. and worth every penny. I have three and will use them again this year. You can visit the site at www.destinationhighways.com ...

          Hey G, normally I just use mapquest for some directions and head out. Do most of my miles in Michigan, and have become very familiar with the northern part of the state.

          The link you posted looks like a great help for some "new" riding areas, and I just may put to use.

            When I head out of Chicago it takes a good hour or two of riding just to get to some decent areas. We normally head up to Wisconsin but one year we head down to southern Indiana and this site gave me some good areas to spend some time. If I'm just heading out for the day I'll just ride for a while and then head back but if I'm planning a weekend I like to find some nice areas to get to so I can get the most out of it. There was another web site I used a couple of times (www.motorcyclistonline.com or something like that) that was OK also. Since riders post to these sites it usually points out some good roads off the regular highway.

            Glyde, didn't you do the Copper Harbor trip last year? That was a great trip when I did it.

              Guess I am lucky to have a mile ride over the St. Marys River to Soo Mi. and have endless miles of great riding.

              The trip to Copper Harbor was fantastic. Thinking of heading back that way this summer, too many roads that can't be rode in just one weekend. Also, there are always many riders out in that area every weekend in the summer.

                Good site. I checked that site out in the past and it gave me some ideas of routes to check out.
