SP-429 : Alba - Piana Crixia

July 10, 2014 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.5

This road leads through the picturesque Langhe area of Piedmont. Nothing too technical but lots of bends and scenery to keep things interesting. I saw many local riders. The area has quite a foodie reputation with eight Michelin-starred restaurants in the area. October is the white truffle season so, the hotels fill up.

A nice ride through the scenic Istrian Peninsula. The few kilometers before the ferry port are very nice.


Highway 44 Motovun to Buzet

Continental Croatia inclu... > Croatia > Europe
July 25, 2013 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

The road follows a river between the hill towns of Motovun and Buzet. It begins as a fairly straight road, but as you approach Buzet, the high speed sweepers are greatly entertaining.


Motovun - Pazin

July 25, 2013 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

Quite an entertaining stretch of twisty road from the picturesque hill town of Motovun to Pazin.

Umbria/Toscana/Marche > Italy > Europe
June 20, 2012 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

From SP64, turn north on SP52 for a few kilometers before reaching SP14. Nothing too challenging, but a pleasant road through a gorgeous Tuscan setting.

Very enjoyable curvy road through Tuscan vineyards.

Although traffic congestion might be a problem, nevertheless, an enjoyably, twisty road.


SR80 / SS17 / SS4 : Teramo - Rieti ( Gran Sasso )

Lazio/Abruzzi > Italy > Europe
February 10, 2006 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

Take S 80 out of or into Teramo. This takes you through the Gran Sasso National Park region. Wonderful scenery, great riding and a fair selection of places to stay.

Umbria/Toscana/Marche > Italy > Europe

SS272 : Monte Sant Angelo - San Giovanni Rotondo

Basilicata/Calabria > Italy > Europe
June 20, 2012 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

A very enjoyable ride with not too many tight turns to slow you down.


169 / 96bis / 99 : Genzano Di Lucania - Matera

Basilicata/Calabria > Italy > Europe
January 27, 2005 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

Right then the roads are right from Genzano on the 169 towards Oppido Lucano. From Oppido head east on the 96bis towards Altamura. From altamura take the 99 south to Matera. In Matera enjoy the fantastic scenery (It's where they filmed Mel Gibson's "The Passion of Christ") and make sure you visit the Sassi (caves).


SS17 : Isernia - Rionero Sannitico

Campania/Molise/Puglia > Italy > Europe
June 20, 2012 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

Magnificent set of challenging twisties. Good tarmac when I rode it in May 2012. Make sure youre not on the new highway that runs parallel to it.

Mostly second and third gear corners with some pleasant scenery. Decent tarmac when i rode it in May 2012. An enjoyable ride.

SP32 : Grinzane Cavour - Serravalle Langhe

Liguria /Piemonte/Valle d... > Italy > Europe
October 14, 2011 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

A nice ride through the scenic wine-growing Langhe region of Southern Piedmont. The hilly terrain dotted with vineyards, is better suited for leisurely sightseeing rather than serious sport biking. Watch for farm machinery during the harvest season. The area is know for its wine as well as white truffles which come into season in September. I picked the SP32 to highlight, but the entire area is very scenic with several Michelin-starred restaurants. Very little tourist traffic when compared to Tuscany.

SP100 : Tortona - Caldirola

Umbria/Toscana/Marche > Italy > Europe
October 14, 2011 - 3 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.0

Nothing too challenging, but a pleasant road with sweeping curves through the valleys and foothills of Southern Piedmont. The road dead ends at the town of Caldirola.


SS456 : Acqui Terme - Ovada

Umbria/Toscana/Marche > Italy > Europe

Short but sweet. Nothing too challenging, but an enjoyable, curvy road.


A83 : Tarbert - Campbeltown

Argyll/Bute (Scotland) > United Kingdom > Europe
January 2, 2005 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.9

Really nice drag strip style run down Kintyre. There are also some great corners on this route, the only downside being that there is sometimes a speedtrap waiting around a blind corner/brow.

A2 : Larne - Portrush ( Antrim Coast Road )

Ulster (Northern Ireland)... > United Kingdom > Europe
October 3, 2007 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.5

As anyone who has ridden this road knows. Its extremely technical, and needs to be thought-out before you take off like a head-less chicken, thinking that you are Gods gift to motorcycling. It takes extremely good observation and positioning skills, and a lot of knowing your own limitations, and your machines. If you ride with a group, it can be a rewarding blat, and there is definetly a feel-good factor at the end, especially if you have the confidence to go via the Torr head route, which is NOT! for the faint hearted! Ride the road that i believe is probably the most technical in the U.K. A good Enhanced Advanced ride: If you dare be that progressive.
This Antrim Coast Road or the A.2. does exist, as we took 21 people over it in the summer, and also the PSNI used to train their pursuit car and motorcyclists along it at; I know this, because thats were i got my instructors certificate..eventually! ha! ha! (So it is there.)

Rt 1095: Chiang Mai - Pai

Thailand > Thailand > Asia
March 25, 2011 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

A real curve-fest! Pai is about 3 hours from Chiang Mai. Just about right for a day trip. I read somewhere that there are 800 curves between Chiang Mai and Pai. The road surface isn't the best but, it's not terrible either. I really enjoyed it. Pai is a backpacker stop with lots of restaurants.
