The 15 Best Motorcycle Roads in America Hot

Motorcycles-roadsThe results are in. The AMA has just surveyed its members to find out where to go when you want to ride a really fantastic motorcycle road.

So where do you go? California has four of the greatest motorcycle roads in America, and Montana and Tennessee tie with three each. According to the survey, there are also fantastic motorcycle roads in Oregon, Ohio, Idaho, Mississippi, Colorado, Virginia, North Carolina and Wyoming.

"When it comes to the best places in the country to ride motorcycles, no group of riders is more knowledgeable than AMA members," said AMA President and CEO Rob Dingman. "No group puts in more miles, samples more asphalt or rides more roads.

"By publicizing our favorite roads in American Motorcyclist magazine, AMA members will seek out these destinations and bring tourism dollars into local communities through the purchase of food, fuel, lodging and more."

The AMA asked its 230,000 member community to help identify the greatest motorcycle roads in America. Members were able to nominate new roads, or to vote for existing nominations. The AMA said that nearly 100 roads made the official ballot, and that the "honorable mentions" will be published in the April issue of American Motorcyclist.

"Some of these roads are familiar to motorcyclists, and others may not be," said Managing Editor James Holter. "They all have one thing in common: They're the best roads in the country, as chosen by AMA members."

Wisconsin has some beautiful back roads to adventure on!!!! Spring thru fall. It is just great riding here.

The colors are just beautiful to take in when riding in the fall.

I have not had the opportunity to ride in the upper penninsula of Wisconsin but I hear they are just breath taking during the color changes in fall.
Hopefully I will be able to take these colors in while riding this fall if not next year for sure!!

Happy riding my friends!!
