Big list of SoCal roads?

Does anyone know of a big list of great roads in SoCal?

I've done a lot of riding in the northern half of the state and don't know much about what's down in the southern half other than a couple of famous ones.

If I can spend two weeks road tripping around the area, what are some rides I must do?

That's a good start, but we've got countless amazing roads to explore.

What kind of riding do you want to do?

There's highway 33 in Ojai, Palomar Mountain in San Diego, Glendora Mountain Road... too many to list.

Anything paved and twisty and/or great views.

I'm working on a project to catelogue and rate all of the good riding roads in the US. So far I only have Northern California: bit.ly/MotoRoads

lol. I have the Butler Motorcycle Map for SoCal. They mark roads in 3 colors of ranking. Itís a decent start but you may need to take their rankings with a grain of salt because it is based on their own preference. They recommend one of the Malibu roads as absolutely amazing, but me and my friends hated it. It was very pretty scenery but the layout of the road wasnít to our taste. Most of their suggested roads are pretty good.

only 'sport bike' roads?

Nate Harrison Grade. Goes from your 76 up to the top of Palomar. Mostly dirt. I plan to explore it soon on my Adv.

95% paved roads. Otherwise the list would be thousands upon thousands long. There are a large number of goat roads listed. that wouldn't be suitable for a sport bike.

The idea is that the roads should be enjoyable on any road-going bike. Some dirt roads are listed purely because they make good connections, have especially nice scenery, or are particularly renowned dirt roads.
