    Where is it? The perfect road with the challenging bends and hills, great views, long fast straights and obviously.....no traffic, the one that gives you the ultimate in driving experience and thrill, the one where it doesn't matter that you have to drive back again because you forgot something, does that road excist, have you come across it?

    I'm of course talking about driving at legal speed now....:twisted: 8) :oops: :lol:

    Isle of Man for driving/riding has got to be up there.

    Great Ocean road along the coast in Victoria is pretty amazing too.

    There are more but they come to mind easiest.

    There are some amazing roads to drive down in the Alps in Bavaria, Austria, Switzerland and northern Italy. Really breath taking!

    There is a road in Colorado called "Oh My God Road". Wanted to go down it on a trip to Colorado once, but the wife of my friend refused as she is afraid of heights and from what I've been told it is a pretty interesting stretch of road.
    Here's one pic I found.

    The "Going to the Sun" road in Montana is one of the most breathtaking I have ever seen.

    The drive from Jasper to Banff in the Canadian Rockies is pretty cool and I have here the best sunday drive along the Niagara River from Fort Erie to Fort George about a 50km drive next to the river
    The drive along the fiords in Stavenger Norway were great also

    I google earthed Trollstigen and it was a little too far north up in Trondheim and Bergen I was in Sola/Stavenger . What blew me away was the drivers reaching out the windows to pull in their mirrors so they could pass opposing traffic

    There is certainly some fantastic roads that I've been on in Norway (around Bergen, Stavanger, Oslo and Lillehammer). As pbfoot says the road between Jasper and Banff is awesome as well (the train back again if cool too although I went a different route - through Kamloops and back to Vancouver).

    There are also some more awesome roads in Alaska and the Alps and also in South Africa (particularly in the Cape). There are an awful lot of great driving roads out there, would love to drive the all but that isn't going to happen.

    There are some great roads out there. Problem is I can never get on one without being stuck behind some moron dawdling along at half the speed limit!

    When MosCons were still happening the stretch of Hwy 95 between Coeur D'Alene and Moscow was a favourite.

    It is Autobahn, and no it is not really breathtaking. You are driving to fast to enjoy it...

    Also the Autobahn is not one road. It is just like the Interstates in the US, only that you can drive much faster.
