DN7C / Transfagarasan Pass : Cârtisoara - Curtea de Arges

Transylvania > Romania > Europe
September 1, 2010 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.5

The Transfăgărăşan (trans (over, across) + Făgăraş) or DN7C is the highest (~2200m) and most dramatic paved road in Romania. Built as a strategic military route by Nicolae Ceauşescu, the 110 km of twists and turns run North to South across the tallest sections of the Carpathian Mountains, between the highest peak in the country, Moldoveanu, and the second highest, Negoiu. The road connects the historic regions of Transylvania and Wallachia, and the cities of Sibiu and Piteşti.

SS38 / Passo Stelvio / Stilfser Joch : Bormio - Prato Allo Stelvio

Lombardia/Emilia-Romagna ... > Italy > Europe
April 14, 2005 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.5

The legendary Stelvio pass, an unbelievable selection of switchbacks on the Italian side of the Swiss border that has to be seen to be believed. It's almost always very busy and so is hard to get a clear run, but this is definitely a 'must do' for all bikers at least once.

S300 / Passo del Tonale : Bormio

Veneto/Trentino-Alto Adig... > Italy > Europe
February 13, 2006 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.8

From Bormio take the S42 and then S300 south towards Ponte di Legno. You can go a little further and end at the Passo di Tonale at a mere 1883 metres. On the way you'll pass over oen of the highest passes in Europs and in this area only the Stelvio out does it - The Gavia Pass, a mere baby at 2618m or 8617 feet - N46.3437 E10.4875!

B107 / Großglockner Hochalpenstraße / Hochtor : Bruck An Der Grossglocknerstrasse - Winklern

Western Austria > Austria > Europe
January 23, 2005 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.6

Fantastic scenery, and the highest pass in Austria. Open May to November. Can be busy - so probably best to avoid at weekends. Very popular with bikers, but cars too. You need a head for heights and have to like hairpins too. Some nice fast stretches too. Very few hazards except the road itself: the 29 hairpin bends. Visibility is good though, and there are hardly any side roads. Jusat watch out for people gawping at the scenery. 360 views from the Edelweissspitze - stop for food and a beer there as well. It is a toll road though. Euro 17 for a day/ Euro 30 for a 30 day pass. Their stated aim is to be the most biker friendly pass in the Alps! More info here www.grossglockner.at

Postalm : Strobl - Postalm - Oberscheffau

Western Austria > Austria > Europe
July 23, 2012 - 3 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.5

Postalm runs between Pichl on the B162 and Weißenbach on the B158 near to Wolfgansee. The centre section is a Private Toll Road and costs €4,- per motorcycle. The road passes through forests and mountains with a mixture of straights, sweeping kerbs and hair pins. On the whole the road surface is very good but there are a few short sections where it is a bit rough. At Postalm itself is a lovely cafe with another at the Toll booth on the Wolfgansee side.

A good route when doing a circular tour taking in Hallstat and The Lakes around Wolfgansee, Traunsee, Attersee and Mondsee.

When using Paß Geschutt (B166) you can cut the corner between Lammerer and Pichl taking in a pleasant narrow rural road.
