    I'm blessed to live in Denver, so I've got the rockies to ride in, but I just got back from a two week tour of Australia and New Zealand (Sydney and Surfer's Paradise in Australia, then over to New Zealand's Rotorua). It was freakin' amazing, and my only regret is that I was stuck in a rental car and not on my bike. It just got me wondering... What's the coolest place you've ever ridden? Got pics?

    I have had the pleasure of many wonderful trips around the countryside and I could really not pick one special one . If I had to pick one I would have to say the next one ! But on to the real question The run from my house here in rural Alberta over to Jasper the down the byway from there to Bannf coming aback trough Drumheller would have to be right up there as every type of country you could imagine is covered .Rolling Hinterland lakes and rivers forest and wide spread valleys . emerald lakes , water falls high peaks drifting hyways with scenery to live for not to mention the high mountain Glaciers, and twisties at near the top of the world! This run is a truly remarkable get away everyone should try. I am not a camera kinda guy never have been but if I take my camera if I can find it next time I will bring some snaps.

    Victory Cross Country Tour
    I've been coast to coast several times. I like them all the same but for different reasons. If I had to make a list though: 1) Sequoia and Kings Canyon in California. Right next to each other. The giant trees(and the famous General Sherman) are just incredible to see. Kings Canyon is also right on top of it so it's a 2fer on a nice day long ride. 2) Northern Cascade Mountains in Washington. An absolutely beautiful day long ride. Southern Cascades can be seen on a return trip. As well as Leavenworth(a Bavarian tourist town, not the prison) 3) Yellowstone/Beartooth Pass. Have a week to spend in this park that covers two states? you'll need it. Has a little of bit everything from wild animals, hot springs, Old Faithful and really neat natural formations from mineral and sulfur deposits. 4) Grand Canyon speaks for itself. 5)Moab Utah. Arches National, Canyonlands, Goblin State Park etc. Tons to see and do here, just a few hours west, Zion and Bryce(Bryce is just awesome as well) 6)Jackson Hole,Cody and Thermopolis WY. All beautiful areas to ride in as well as Cody which is more of tourist town but has some neat nightly shows. I could go on for another hour and several pages. A lot depends on what you want to see, what you like seeing.

    Will definately agree that Custer, The Needles, Badlands, Spearfish Canyon, and Rushmore are worth seeing again and again. But after having ridden The Dragon, Moonshiner28, and the Cherohala Skyway last month I'm going to vote for The Dragon. There are two different kinds of riding we all do, South Dakota is great for kicked back cruising. Deals Gap North Carolina and The Dragon are for scrape your floorboards jamming.

    I've ridden most of what been posted above with the exception of almost anything in Canada. Beartooth Pass was my most memorable due to the fact that I got rained on, hailed on, and snowed on all on the 4th of July, 2009.

    Northen Arizona is a great ride and pretty cool Cool pine areas of Northern Arizona have several great scenic rides. I just can’t mention one, there’s Lake Mary Road to Clint Wells to Strawberry Pine AZ. Flagstaff to Sedona through Oak Creek Canyon. 1983 Yellowstone Park was a pretty good ride as well. On a personal note, most people think of Arizona as Hot Desert, Tepee’s, Indians and Rattle snakes, but we have the northern part of our state which has the largest forests of Ponderosa Pines in the country. If you have been watching the news Arizona’s most beautiful forest in the north east part of the state is being lost to fire, this is truly one of the coolest places to ride in Arizona and in the country. So if you are so inclined say a little prayer for the families and firefighters and what was one of the largest and most beautiful forest of Ponderosa Pines in the country and a great place to ride in the Arizona summer. Ride Safe and Often

    Pretty much whatever road I happen to be on at the time-I ride over Trail Ridge Road probably ten times or more a year when it's open just as a shortcut to some great fishin' spots and I never get tired of it & it always looks different. Going To The Sun Road would be at the top of my list as well as the PCH, Chief Joseph Memorial Highway, 191 in AZ was probably the most curves I went through in a day,Just rode the million dollar highway/San Juan Loop last week on a little southwest tour and it's always fun-see ya on the road, Brian a few of the Vision's resent roads traveled [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    My wife and I did a 2900 mile round trip on our bike and made a point to ride Deal's gap ( devil's tail ) , a road that goes between tenn. and n. carolina . This road numerous turns and switchbacks over an 18 mile distance. Some of the switchbacks you can almost touch your tail pipe they are so tight. It is an awesome ride , sure to thrill even the most daring riders. There is a gift shop on the Carolina side with lots of photos on the board of the ones that were going to fast and didn't make a turn, and there is the tree of shame. There is also an abundance of beautiful roadway to ride in the area, including the Smokey mountains . You won't regret going , i asure you ! Tom D.
