'I've been everywhere, man; I've been everywhere, man; across the deserts bare, man; I've breathed the mountain air, man; of travel I've had my share, man; I've been everywhere.' —Johnny Cash

Even for Johnny Cash, it would be a mighty feat to ride America's 3.9 million miles of highways, byways, avenues and alleys to get, as the song says, "everywhere." Although sometimes it may feel like we've traveled every road worth a ride, the biker DNA bubbling in our blood tells us there is, somewhere, the spectacular road not taken.

Not that we haven't tried to ride everywhere. Aside from a few heated water-cooler debates, varying levels of certifiable psychosis, polite differences of opinion and immeasurable variables of riding style, the staff at Motorcycle.com carefully considered its 300 or so years of collective biking experience and named these the Top 10 touring roads in the U.S., although no peaceable agreement could be made as to order, except for the fistfight averting alphabetical.

Print this, stuff it in your leather shirt, get off the couch and on your bike, and find some adventure.

Wow, very nice. Have ridden most of Hwy 1 in CA, and would nominate Hwy 88 (also in CA) from Stockton to Markleeville, over Carson Pass at 8,500 feet. Beautiful.

Planning on scouring as much of Hwy 1 from San Francisco north this holiday weekend. Wife and I will mount the FJR and head off.

I won't be doing the acid thing that Hunter talked about, but I will be smashing a bit of it.

Great list and worth keeping handy....

On your way north, if you feel like an inland detour, stop by here:
Wild Flour Bread Bakery - Wood Fired Brick Oven Baked Bread - Wildflour Freestone

BEST bread you have ever eaten in your life, and the place is a total trip.

Great post with the links. Now I'm wanting to get out and go. But my bike is at home and I am at work about 4 hours away.

I will have to find that while we are out....thanks for the tip.
You won't regret it. Just take 1 north out of Stinson Beach past Tomales Bay, and when you come to a fok that says 1 north to the left, go right on Freestone Valley Ford Road to Freestone. Bakery is on the left. From there you can continue up north to Monte Rio on the Russian River, and then take 116 back out to coast (which follows the river) through Duncan Mills and Jenner, two very cool small towns. Superb roads all of them.
