Harlow to: Finchingfield
The A414 from Harlow to Chipping Ongar has some good bends but a few double white lines. At the Four Wantz roundabout (BP garage) turn left onto the B184 to Great Dunmow, when you get to the T junction after about 7 miles turn right on to the A1060 Chelmsford. Then after about a mile turn left back onto the B184. Go through Great Dunmow High street, it's a bit narrow but loud pipes do sound good. As you leave Dunmow turn right onto the B1057, which is on a left hand corner. This road will take you all the way to Finchingfield. The road surfaces are all pretty good and there are some good corner combinations with a left hander that just gets tighter and tighter between Dunmow and Finchingfield. When you get there, there is a good biker friendly pub on a big green that gets really busy in the summer.
Galashiels to: Edinburgh
Lots of tight bends, lots of sweeping corners, lots of straights which guarantees you can pass the caravan club member of the year. I had great fun travelling this route. No speed cameras on this section (that I can recall) and the road surface is pretty good all round with the the high grip surface on the tight corners.
Better still is if you travel south on this route, join the A68 a few miles East of Melrose and head south towards Cambo. If you're not crazy you can have great fun through the borders but beware of the speed cameras. There are no speed cameras once you get into England but be cautious of the blind summits, there have been fatalities on this road at some of these points (no motorcycles that I've heard of). Other than that champion.
Still more fun if you turn off the A68 onto the A696 taking the exit for Otterburn, take it slow through Otterburn then let rip to Morpeth.
Shrivenham to: Lambourn
Nice quiet B road, open, pretty good surface, good bends, glorious on a good day.
Abbots Bromley to: Uttoxeter
Ups And Downs, good surface, loads of twistys, adverse cambers, in and out of woodland, Will realy test your abilitys, start in Abbots Bromley, pretty little village with loads of character, if you can do it in less than 8 mins you are going miles too fast!
