If you could ride any road...
We as a community should be able to come up with one helluva Rider's Bucket List.

I'll start.
1. From Anytown, USA to the Sturgis Bike Rally in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota.
2. The Dragon's Tail, Deals Gap, NC
'07 Double One Hundred Custom Black Cherry w/Ghost flames
Cobra Speedster Slashdown pipes
Barons ORK
Disabled AIS
Cobra Carb Needles
Every cage is trying to kill you so always remember, Grip it and Rip it!!!

RE: If you could ride any road...
The Dragon's Tail certainly looks like fun, but most of my list is probably the sort of thing you wouldn't want to do on a cruiser...come to think of it if I was going to ride the Dragon's Tail I'd rather do it on something more nimble.

Anyway, most of my bucket list would certainly be more fun on an enduro style bike, and a couple of them would probably be cruiser killers.

Number one would be Highway 1 all the way around Iceland - when I was stationed there in the 80's there were parts of that that weren't much more than a track blasted and bulldozed through bolder fields.

Number two would be Mosquito Pass in Colorado (there are actually several such cart tracks over the Rockies that I'd like to ride but this is one of the better known ones). This one probably will never get realized because it's very high altitude and my health probably wouldn't permit it.

Number three would be almost any two-lane through the Swiss Alps - again health might not permit this although it's a lot less demanding than a broken terrain ride like Mosquito Pass.

Number four would be the PCH from Santa Monica to the northern end. For this one they'd have to declare an annual "no &^$# motor homes" weekend though...
