The USA's Ten Best Motorcycle Roads

On my recent adventure across the western part of the USA, I have been fortunate enough to travel down a number of amazing roads. The travel website Lonely Planet has come up with what they are calling the USA's Ten Best Motorcycle Roads. I've been down a few of these byways and can offer a few photos, but what do you all think?
According to Lonely Planet, "A great road is a great road, but if you’re riding a motorcycle, you’re looking for something special: twisties, vistas, turnouts, that perfect stretch of smooth tarmac, and biker-friendly stops that make getting there most of the fun. Here are 10 of the best roads across America for an unforgettable motorcycle journey."

10. The Great River Road (Hwy 61): 2,552 miles from Itasca State Park, Minnesota to Jackson, Louisiana 
9. Route 66: 2200 miles from Chicago to Santa Monica

8. Overseas Highway (Hwy 1), Florida, 100 miles from Key Largo to Key West

7. Coastal Highway 1: 170 miles from Kittery to Bucksport, Maine
