The Top 100 Routes to Ride on a Motorcycle

Leaving Madrid NM
A friend that rides with us posted an interesting article on Facebook last week, and it got me thinking about something.  Just how many roads on this list of  "The Top 100 Routes", have we actually ridden?

Thanks Lynn for sharing the article.  I sent this email to my husband, with just that question.  I knew of several of the roads, but hey, I sit on the back, and sometimes, I don't pay that much attention to the name or number of the road.  Someone has to take the pictures, right!

The website that I am referring to is The Best Routes.  According to the article, they have ranked the best Routes using their
unique popularity algorithm.  I am happy to say that we have participated in 29 of the 100 routes they have listed.  Now to be honest, I will also say there are 3 of the routes, we have only partially ridden.

Looks like we have to get busy and see if we can knock off a few of the ones we haven't been on.  Sounds like we need to plan to mark some off the list this year.  If I know my husband, he is already searching the Internet to make sure we hit a few in 2014.

I am so lucky to have a wonderful husband that can navigate our little group of riders to some of the best areas we will ever see in the USA.  I don't know if you guys plan rides or not, but I have to say, Chuck is a planner.  He spends a lot of time making sure we see and ride some of the best roads on our trips.  That being said, I think that is why I can sit on the back of the bike and take all the pictures that I love to take and share of our trips.  At least it makes for some interesting material for me to blog about.  :)

By the way, here is the list of our roads we have ridden on the top 100.  Which ones have you been on and better than that, which ones do you plan to ride (very soon)!!!!
