I was just wondering what type of road different people like.
On this and other forums I see people saying this road was great or that road was brilliant, so just wondering.
I like roads that I can see quite a bit ahead, and get a decent speed up. I Scotland a couple spring to mind. The one along Loch Laggan for example. Or the road(s) up round Ullapool. These are roads that I feel bike are made for. Corners speeds that are interesting if you know what I mean.
Some roads I hear are great such as the road to Applecross I'm not so keen on. Yes it's one for the 'tick list', but other than the views on a nice day, it's basically a pain in the butt to ride due to too traffic etc.
I often see people post about the road in Europe. These roads look wonderful, the scenery is beautiful, but there again there's traffic and hairpins bends abound. If I want to drive round at 20-30 mph, I could do that in town, or off road on a bike that doesn't weigh 270kgs
I presume no one will put motorways on the list of favourite roads..........surely not!
