Nom­i­nated by Ja­son Can­na­dine, Yamaha XSR700 Route A quick 400mile dash to BadenBaden in Ger­many Length 880 miles What makes it spe­cial The Black For­est is home to one of the best rid­ing roads in Europe – the B500and it’s only 400 miles away. Get there in a day, ride the 40-mile ‘track’ as many times as you can over the week­end and head back for Sun­day night. The B500 carves its way down the mid­dle of the Black For­est and wrig­gles up and over moun­tain passes with gor­geous scenery and roller­coaster turns. It’s a biker’s dream. The north­ern sec­tion is the most ex­hil­a­rat­ing; a two-year-old with a crayon couldn’t have drawn more twists, curls and whirls. Ride this road Baden-baden to Freuden­stadt. The whole rib­bon is just un­nat­u­rally flaw­less, thanks to a finely bal­anced blend of hair­pins, lefts, rights and long, fast sweep­ers.
