Yes it was smaller. But it was just as good as any other time. Because the word was out that it was not as good. It was better. Not as many people showed up so you could walk around much easier. Nice I thought.

It was OK, about 1/2 the people as compared to last year. No Yamaha, KTM, Ducati, Aprilia and a few others I forgot.  Lots of cool bikes and lots of friends :)

North on US Hwy 191 from Jackson Hole, WY to Moran, WY

The best straight road I've ever traveled on the CBR929RR at the speed limit.

For me, it's a 25 mile section of highway 28 running north out of Franklin NC up to highway 74.

Push Mountain Rd (Hwy 341) near Big Flat, Arkansas is one of my favorites as well. The southern boundary is Hwy 14. You can ride it for 25 miles north to Norfork, then take Hwy 5 south to Mountain View. The first 12 miles running north from Hwy 14 is the best portion of the road. What we often do is run that 12 miles, turn around and run it again back to Hwy 14! It's worth a 2nd trip. The cross roads you see are gravel fire-roads with very little traffic. The road is wide and the pavement is good quality. You can easily run both 12 mile directions and never see another vehicle. You are more likely to see another bike. This is a road where you can run 100% if you're so inclined.
As with most of Arkansas, they don't use gravel in the shoulders, so there *never* is any gravel in the corners. On very rare occasions a gravel driveway may meet the road in a corner and you might find some there.

Hwy 155 near Bakersfield looks terrific. I plan to spend a week exploring California some year! Thanks Lloyd.

So, we have a couple AR roads and a MO road, complete with good descriptions and a map!

I do not have any fancy map to attach but;

I will add a CA road to the mix...........

I was very fond of rural hwy 155 in southern CA from Lake Isabella up through Black Mountain and then down westerly all the way back to Bakersfield glennville? road heading mostly southwesterly to Round Mountain road then some mix of turns to get back onto the freeway 958?) back to barstow

But 155 was the star of the route and this too was a road you make any mistake on and they won't find you probably ever. It is riddled with areas of hundreds of foot drops and rock protrusions taking up all the shoulder and part of the lane (narrowing the already narrow pass down to less than 20' wide in areas)

great road, constantly turning and nearly no place to stretch past about 50mph with any confidence..... elevation changes of thousands of feet several times.......

Hwy 125 in Missouri running from the Peel Ferry to Bradleyville. New pavement a couple years ago and they didn't straighten any portion of it. One of the top 10 roads in America, IMO. You are hard pressed to have more fun at 70mph than on this road.
