Part of this road is gravel/dirt, but should be fine for any street bike, as long as you don't mind your bike getting a bit of dirt on it. A nice road with flowing corners and scenic views (rode this during the summer). Highly recommend if touring into Homer.
This paved section of Top of the World Hwy is accessible only by 20 miles or so of dirt/gravel road. For that reason, i'd say it's a great route for ADV bikes. But once you get there, it is outstanding - amazing views on incredible smooth blacktop. This was one of the highlights of my ADV trip to Alaska.
The upper portion of this road is outstanding pavement, with incredible scenery of the mountains across Katchemak Bay. However, the last few miles down to the beach are absolutely for ADV bikes ONLY (or dual sport) - this last stretch is slippery gravel roads around many sharp corners, and then a very steep descent to the coast. Honestly there's no way I could have gone back up the hill on a sport machine or cruiser. But ride the amazing road until it turns to gravel, then turn around at that point. ADV/dual sport should absolutely continue to the beach.
Scenic out-and-back route with plenty of fun curves. Possibly closed if snow.
If you're on a motorcycle and you're not trying to make time, why would you bother riding 395 when you can take this epic, curvy scenic route. Super fun, open corners, and beautiful scenery.
This ride out to Mt St Helens and back - either for northbound or southbound riders on Highway 5 - is very scenic and a great road, practicallly *made* for motorcycles. Nice long curving corners, nothing surprises you. A gorgeous ride, and beautiful views of Mt St Helens when you get to the end. Go all the way up to the visitor center and go in and watch the movie/see the exhibits. Incredible place - the volcano is amazing!
Very nice coastal run up to the tip of the Olympic Peninsula. Curvy road mostly in the forest, be careful if roads are wet - there is moss growing on the roads near the end of the route.
When you get to the end, you definitely want to hike out the Cape Flattery Trail out to the lands end where there are amazing views of sea caves, the island, birds, seals, etc. Gorgeous area and a nice hike through dense, lush rainforest. Dont miss it!
