Rode the Cherohala a couple years ago. Still prefer the BRP mainly because of the ugly guard rail on the Cherohala. The BRP is just a more scenic ride.

Western Arkansas is full of good roads of all types of riders. If you're close to it do the Pig Trail but don't plan on being thrilled or challenged. Much too short and only a few of decent curves IMO

I haven't ridden any of those mentioned.......I haven't been east of the Mississippi since I was last stationed in Virginia (78-80). I did ride a bunch of the VA and NC coastal roads while I was there. Kind of hard to beat all the good roads out west.

Lead, or follow, but just stay out of my way.

Northwest Arkansas has some of the best riding in the country . Rode in several different states but I still like it better here .

I did Hwy 36 in Northern California back in '08 on our way back from the Ronnie Rally in Silver Springs NV. I vowed that I would someday go back and do it again and did it last summer on my ST1300.

The only drawback was that there was major construction just west of Dinsmore and they only allowed traffic through the construction area for only an hour from noon until 1:00 and then it is closed again until after 5:00. I discovered this when leaving Red Bluff, calculated the time and distance and figured I could make it if I really pushed it. I was going through the curves a lot faster than I really wanted to but I also didn't want to spend 4 hours hanging out in Dinsmore.

I made it just before 1:00 and was in the last group of vehicles that they let through. From there on I could relax and take the rest of the ride at a slower pace. At least, I found out what I and my bike were capable of!
