Kendal to: Carlisle
My favourite road in the whole country - I go to Scotland a lot from Burnley in Lancashire, but it never really feels like I'm on my way until I start climbing the A6 out of Kendal towards Shap summit. The rest of the run from Shap to Penrtih and then to Carlisle is mainly flat, but the road is in good repair with lots of sweeping bends to get your knee down on. No police presence (never seen any, yet) but a few villages along the way. It's pretty easy to average about 90mph from Kendal to Carlisle though!
Aylesbury to: Tring
Knee sliding heaven! Probably been submitted before but this double roundabout figure of 8 is EXCELLENT! Take TRING exit off A41 and you are on the roundabout with excellent view. Linked to it is a fantastic long curve which is like a roundabout but with only one road on and one off, fantastic. I have been riding only 6 weeks on FZR600R but can get both left and right knee down all way round. Babylon turn up now and again but usually are very good humoured and ask all to leave. Good in the day, but some Sundays have seen 20+ riders. Enjoy!!
Warminster to: Dorchester/Weymouth
Starts off very fast and open (ZX-9R territory) (used to be but unfortnately have blown my dynojetted 155 hp beast ed.) then from Blandford it is time to go loopy. Twisty - 'grind your knee-sliders to atoms'. There is a cafe by the river in Shaftesbury where bikers gather on a Sunday.
Coventry to: Rugby
Best on Sundays and avoid rush hour at all costs. Combination of sweeping very fast corners and tighter bends perfect knee sliding territory!
