The smooth ones with no potholes.

I'd have to say one in the keeweenau peninsula, as I haven't been down m119 yet

I haven't been on M119 yet as well, but of the ones I have been on, US23 between Cheboygan and Rogers City isn't too bad.



And also M134 over to Drummond Island is fairly scenic.

West Lake Shore Drive between Bay Mills and Paradise. Smooth, curvy, waterside/beach side, plenty of beach access areas.

I don't have one in particular, but I LOVE the old wavy back roads. I'm not talkin' about pothole ridden roads, just roads with character. If it has curves and hills, that's even better. Part of it is because those roads are more interesting to drive on, but I also have a lot of memories of riding around with the old man; hunting, fishing, exploring, etc... That would include county/seasonal roads.

It actually saddens me when they come through, repave and modernize such roads. I understand it, but it saddens me. What felt like a old rustic road with a story at 55mph now becomes a smooth boring nothing that makes 55mph feel like 35.

M22 is great. Certainly a favorite. I haven't been on M119, but I'd like to some day.

M119 is awesome, or really any coastal road in the NW part of Michigan.

the wife and I would go out with windows up and doors locked and on those super hot nights we would cruise around just to see the mayhem. probably wasn't smart but was fun.

if I'm driving on Dort Hwy at night, I am either on my way to or from Auto City.

There's some fun roads down by Hell.

Covered Dr. by Houghton is awesome in the fall when the leaves have turned. The drive out to Redridge Dam is pretty nice too.
