What are the Five Of The Best Motorcycle Rides In The U.S.?
There are a ton of great motorcycle rides in the U.S.; the challenge in coming up with the top five was definitely in the narrowing down process. Though tastes may vary, there is no denying the relaxing joy of riding on an open stretch of scenic highway. With that said, here are our five best motorcycle routes in America.
Pacific Coast Highway (California)
There are a number of routes you can take along Pacific Coast Highway (Highway 1); how long you want to ride is up to you. There are few better rides in the U.S. that provide the gorgeous coastal views of PCH, with the most popular ride displaying beautiful ocean views and winding stretches of highway between Morro Bay and Monterey.
U.S. Route 1 (Maine)
From Highway One to Route One, you can find great motorcycle rides in every corner of the U.S. This ride goes along one of the oldest highways on the eastern seaboard and features many trees and ocean views, much like its counterpart on the West Coast. Though there are some similarities between the two rides, U.S. Route 1 is definitely an idyllic East Coast experience for any rider.
Tail of the Dragon (N. Carolina & Tennessee)
A very curvy and scenic ride, Tail of the Dragon is one of the most popular routes in the U.S. Though its proper name is U.S. Route 129, the moniker is more than appropriate for a ride that features a “memorial” tree of broken bike parts from fallen riders. There are also several other desirable rides in the area, many of which feature similar views along the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Twisted Sisters (Texas)
Also known as the “Three Sisters,” this ride is a loop that incorporates three Hill Country Ranch Roads: 335, 336, & 337. Rivers, mountains, and ranches are common sites along this 100 mile ride, though some caution should be taken while enjoying the views. The ride can be very dangerous with its many curves and steep roadside drop-offs so be sure to stay focused while enjoying the natural beauty.
Blue Ridge Parkway (Virginia)
The Blue Ridge Parkway ride goes along a U.S. National Parkway that winds over 400 miles through the Appalachian Mountains. It’s a very scenic and relaxing ride, which has earned the route the nickname of “America’s Favorite Drive.” There are also several camping and picnic sites along the route, making it easy and convenient to stop off for a quick rest or a bite to eat.
