Worlds Best M/C Roads

A little something from Wired magazine:
http://blog.wired.com/cars/2008/07/ride-the-worlds.html

Some of the most asinine things people do are typically preceded by the two words "Watch this."

Re: Worlds Best M/C Roads

I have three days for day rides out of Monterey before the Moto GP races start. What are the best day or half day rides out of Monterey. Highway 1 to the south is closed.
