I have always loved riding curvy roads.  I also love pictures of bikes in curves so I have taken a lot of pictures of bikes in curves or had other people take pictures of me riding in curves.  If you also love curves then feel free to add your pictures to this thread.

I'll kick it off.  These pictures were taken by US129Photographers as my wife and I rode through Deal's Gap several years ago.  They were running a special of $1 per picture so I bought several.

Unfortunately there isn't always a professional photographer around when you need one.  So sometimes I take matters into my own hands.  I took this picture of a friend a few years ago.

Sometimes I'm by myself so I just park the bike and snap a picture.

This is one of my favorite Dragon pictures.   Everyone pulled over and we kept going!  That's Bill & Vicki as well as Pete behind me.

Awesome shots. This is the only one of me doing curves near Potosi, MO in 2012.  You canít see the curves though.  Just the slight lean.  Little did I know I was in for a big surprise when we stopped my rear tire had worn through to the cords.  That was a nightmare of a story.

Here's one I took a few years ago while I was touring the island of Spetes. IIRC there was a block or two of strait street in the city but everywhere else was as you see it.

Taking pictures of each other is a fun thing to do when riding, IMHO!

I was riding by myself and stopped to get a picture of this great curve and a bike just happened to ride by.  Perfect timing.

I couldn't get my bike in this picture but I thought the curvy road really complimented the scenery.

I normally carry a camera on a strap hanging from my neck so I can get shots on the move.

Agreed, just wonderful pics to see. Part of the reason I enjoy scoots is I'm much more prone to stop and smell the roses so to speak. So I tend to take a lot more scenic pics. Great pics all!
