this is my typical route...going out to the very end isn't too necessary, the best sections are from start to when passing through river head. great scenery as well, and the best way to experience long island on a sport bike! if you want a speed run, hit county road 51, it is on the map I made but instead of turning into the golf course go straight. Solid 2 mile straight away with little to no law enforcement.
Run to the hills, around a lake and back again
Just off and running
A trip around the NW corner
Derby to Kent falls state Park
great 4 hour ride... u can take RT 8 back or follow the same RT back...
nice scenic route through East Haven, Branford, Guilford. Not a lot of car traffic. some nice ocean views and wooden area great after noon ride
This is a gorgeous run through the forest, especially beautiful during fall when the leaves are changing colors. Fantastic forest cruising with fun corners and plenty of straights. Pavement is mostly in great condition, maybe a few sections that are bumpy but overall great roads. This route is fantastic! I loved it.
quiet country roads
Just Planning now
a couple of mandatory busy sections to get to less travelled state routes, but overall a pleasant ride. Bart\'s Deli in Windsor, was a good stop to eat, and bs about the trip so far.
This route (RTE 8 in CT, between Shelton and Torrington) features a mostly straight, scenic ride with some medium-speed curves thrown in where it gets more town-like. The road is well maintained and wide, with very few trucks. Midday during the week, the road sees very little traffic. When the road passes through countryside, there are a few 3-4 mile long straight sections which pass through a valley, allowing you to see for miles ahead. You can really bring that sportbikes RPM counter into the red zone for a minute or two, squeezing the last MPH out of it as you go for full tuck. Ass up in the air and chin on the tank, do your best Nicky Hayden as the next sweeping curve approaches. Eyes on the apex, get ready to hang off -- NOT! This is not how we ride on public roads! Keep it on the racetrack and off public highways. We ride carefully and observe speed limits ALWAYS. Anyway, back to the road: The pavement quality is good, considering you e in New England. The police presence is slim to none, but don get any ideas.
A couple of nice curves on this short stretch
Interesting road with some nice (if a bit blind) corners.
West to east on this nice little road
A pleasant sweeping road that passes some interesting natural features
Nice northbound alternative to the interstate
Heading north along the forest, you'll find this nice twisty road
