best road maps for riding?

I'd like to purchase a road map dedicated the best roads for bikes. Any recommendations?

Mad Maps has a number of motorcycle maps.

Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

My favorite method is "let's see where this road goes!"

I do a lot of that as well.

Another way that I've found some great routes is to play around in google maps, mapping out a route that avoids four lane roads, has as many twists, turns, zigzags and squiggly lines as possible and is about 200-250 miles long. Then me and a couple of buddies go spend a Sunday straightening out that pavement.
