From Ripley take the A61 to Ripon Plenty of sweeping bends all the way popular with bikes and also popular with coppers keep both eyes open
Leave the sportsbike boys on the famous Penrith/Alston run to take the flak from the coppers and do this one. More corners, less bikes, and if you combine it with the road from Brough to Middleton (even quieter) you will have a cracking run. Watch out for tourists cars in summer going to the local waterfall, and the unmarked Police bikes!
