Default US 129 a blast. Others?

Thought I would check if anybody knows of other public roads with the kind of spirited driving US129 promotes. I have driven all over Canada and apart from gravel cottage roads, the best I found were in the rockies. Notabley HWY 99 from Pemberton to Lilloet. This is 62 miles of brake testing twist and turns with some real elevation changes. If you know of others lets post them here so we can all try them.

some good one's Ian and I found on our way back from Florida were US219, and two small ones through Jefferson National Park - the 717 and 738.

Pretty sweet rural curvy action.

in WNC, a few I enjoy driving often:
NC 80, US 276, US 215, NC 151, NC 63, NC 209, select part of US 64 (west of Brevard, NC), US 74-A, NC Old #9, US 178, US 221

Of course, not the entire road of one I just mentioned are enjoyable, several of them have boring parts to them. But for the most part, they can make for an enjoyable afternoon.

other roads i not yet driven: US hwy 421
