It´s not sportsbike territory, the road surface is too beaten up. The views are great though, especially going west, one with some twists and there´s plenty of places to overtake. The high road onwards to Ventnor is interesting, but really this is the best bit on the island ad it lasts about 10 minutes.
The White Lion in Niton has good beer. The St Catherines Oratory car park is a good place to stop and get an ice-cream by the way, or take the 15 minute walk up to the \"Pepperpot\" which is a medieval lighthouse that commands stunning views. Alternatively keep going straight at Freshwater Bay for a couple of twisty miles until The Highdown Inn appears on your left (nice beer, OK food). The lane beside it and the subsequent 15 minute walk up to Tennisons Monument gets you one of the best views in southern england.
