    I'm trying to put together an electronic list of the best/scenic/curvy roads
    that we could take our cars out to. I'm not one to keep my prancing horses
    in the garage. Have to drive 'em!!

    Below is a partial/in-progress list of great places. Please ADD to this as u
    please. PLEASE COPY THE LIST BELOW, PASTE it as a new version and then
    do a FRESH repost. It'll keep the thread clean and we'll have a nice list at
    the end. Thank You!!

    A cool route in Canada, near Toronto, is the road at the Forks of the Credit river. There is an amazing hairpin turn - if I find a good pic or link I will add.

    Also for people who are interested in driving holidays etc there are several tour operators in Europe, at least, which specialize in such travel. I booked a tour in France myself, i will only be staying in castles ( turned hotels) driving on scenic roads.

    Subscribing, really a great idea.

    Also, one good trick is to buy books intended for bikers. Those roads tend to be nice.

    There are a couple of drives I have done in Italy that are challenging and scenic. One is from Florence to Bologna via Futa and Raticosa passes which is one of the classic legs of the MM. Drove it in the sunshine and can't believe that it was a night leg in terrible weather. The other is from Maranello to Lucca via Abetone Pass. I don't think the road is straight for more than a hundred yards at a time.

    Whoever put the road from Greenwich to Bedford needs to remove it. We're talking about the best roads in THE WORLD here. Yes, for the area, it's a decent route, but relative to the entire planet, it shouldn't be anywhere on this list.



    And WTH is so special about Old Montauk Hwy? We're comparing THOSE roads to the best in the world? Those aren't even the best in the state.

    Earlier this summer, I drove these roadways to be unbelievable:

    From St. Moritz, Switzerland to Lake Como, Italy (45-60 minutes); and

    From Forli, Italy to Florence, Italy on "SS67" (a few hours).

    I drove an Audi A8 but wish I had my 430 - incredible!!

    I have two, both in the same state.

    You can't go very fast of either, but curves: yes. Scenery: Like heaven

    1.) Road to Hana, Maui HI- about as gorgeous a drive as there can be on planet earth.

    2.) Waimea Canyon Drive (to Kalalau overlook), Kauai, HI. Curvy and hilly- like driving on the rim of the grand canyon
