Where in the US is the best riding?

Form my perspective it is on public lands. Paved, unpaved and off-road.

From my perspective and experience both Northern California, above San Francisco and the Smokey Mountains in the East are tops. For Hi Speed, the west.

Congress just made it easier to selloff a large portion of our public lands. Congress lays groundwork to get rid of federal land and national parks - Business Insider

Motorcycling is not, of itself, inherently dangerous.
It is however, extremely unforgiving of inattention, ignorance, incompetence or stupidity.

Best place to ride is where I am riding at the time. I prefer west butl I'll take what I can get. Like the old saying a bad day on a bike is better than a good day at work.
