Whats your favorite driving road?

Mine are, in Las Vegas just on the Arizona side of the Hoover Dam bridge and in Hawaii Auloa Road in Maunawili. Two totally different types of roads. Hoover dam is long and fast switchbacks and Auloa road is super tight corners and direction changes.

Costal Highway 1 ... LA to Origan ... done her twice now (once in my former e46, then again in my former e89 - both times went thru the Chandelier Drive-Thru Tree) will do it again in my e92 this year ...

Anywhere in Bavaria, the Ring and the Stelvio pass are my faves abroad. Locally, the drive to Starved Rock, anywhere in rural Wisconsin near Madison and the track.

Auloa Rd is fun but if you like the tight stuff like Round Top (Tantalus) then Palomar is where it's at. Hit me up if you ever decide to head down south on the 15, I'll take you there.

Was just here the other weekend. The whole area where of 276/Geer highway is just fantastic. All up and downhill mountain area where one mistake means death or just a really shitty wreck that'll leave you wishing you had died.

Most of Switzerland is nice just dont get caught speeding. Did the Stelvio during ED - nice road but extremely crowded. If I knew that nobody is flying around that blind switchback - would be much more interesting.
