One more to add. Utah hwy 12 from Torry to Escalante up and over the Boulder mts and through the slick rock is pretty sweet.
I do like the Elk city ride too. :)

UT12 was my favorite road until I did the Devil's. They are both quite awesome. There is also a mostly dirt road that leads from just south of Boulder to (I think?) Escalante that does not suck. Then there is the Burr Trail...

I usually camp at the BLM site just east of Torry on the north side of US24. In a camper van so I have all of the comforts of home, but in a small package.
Yeah, if you want true ram air tuning, you better be willing to ram some air! (SiSF)

I ride a lot in southwest VA, western NC, east TN, eastern KY, eastern WV, and if I had to pick one favorite road, I'd have to say Rt 42 in VA.  Runs at least 250 miles.  2 lanes.  Runs along the blue ridge mountains.  It's a ride with not much traffic at all, and the road is in very good condition.  It crosses over some mountains so there are switch backs and twists.  It runs through valleys and farm land.  Small towns every so often.  Really cool.
