Best doesnt necessarily will mean the best in condition for me

But absolutely loved the ride from Dehradun to Mussorie-Dhanoulti-Chamba-Haridwar-Corbett-Nainital

NH8 is awesome to blast on, although a bit lethargic near some cities.

Mumbai to Pune old highway isnt bad at all if you have a nice bike.

talk of the roads, and Rajasthan takes the toll.
i find the roads across Rajasthan as role-model to roads across India.
i've been through the following stretches --

Jaipur - Ajmer - Pushkar (travel quite a lot across this, and find it even better every time)

Churu - Bikaner - Jaisalmer
Ajmer - Pali - Sirohi - Mount Abu

Udaipur - Chittorgarh (scary a bit because it's a tribal area, but worth travelling, greener during monsoon, and, through hilly terrain, at times)

a road through Pokharan was most lovable, it had such long stretches without a bend.

Best Road for good times is the Pune to Mangaon via Tamhini, especially in monsoon. Road condition is horrible though.

The very good road quality wise is The highway which falls under Karnataka on Pune-Banglore highway, however the one which falls in Maharashtra is Horrible condition.

This has to be

1) NH4 ( Kolhapur - Belgaum stretch). Mind blowing job by Punj Lloyd. not only for the road designs and construction, but also the way they have maitained the stretch.

2) Amoboli Ghat - That because of the breathtakeing View and driveing pleasure.

--I also like the Jodhpur- Jaisalmer road via Barmer. Beautiful road with great scenic visions of sand dunes on both sides.

--Also, the Baroda-Ahmedabad expreeway is driver's paradise.
--The Mumbai-Pune highway is a boon.

Defenitly not in India, But in my place Trivandrum, Kerala it has to be Kowdiar-Vellayambalam-Museum road(which happens to be my 'Home Strip'), Chackai-Kovalam Byepass road, Shangumugham Airport road, General Hospital-Palayam UnderPassage-Bakery rd.. Lovely roads they are.

NICE, Bangalore!! I had an amazing time driving- less traffic, beautiful roads, no surprises anywhere... A driver's dream come true - at least for me!

Chandwad-Dhule - About 100 KMs of Motoring Nirvana. Four lanes, freshly constructed (tar). However since toll-collection has not yet started, there is a tendency to close down small sections intermittently.

My Indica would cross 120 without us having a whiff - know that's not much, but for a 6 year old workhorse it was magical.

My first choice is however the Mumbai-Pune Xpressway, followed closely by the Mumbai-Ahmedabad highway.

Has anyone driven from Ahmedabad to Baroda or vice versa ? 92 Kms from toll plaza to toll plaza, 6 lanes, only 2 exits, Nadiad & Anand, wide radius curves, can do it from < 38 minutes in a bog standard Indigo ! Fantastic surface !! Europe standard, aptly called National Expressway 1 !! The Bombay-Poona road is nothing compared to this motoring nirvana !!!!!

+1. Back from Rajasthan in December, roads there are outstanding.

I agree that the roads in Rajastan are awesome and so is the Ahd/Baroda expressway, but IMHO, as far as scenic routes are concerned, the old Bombay Pune road would need to be ranked among the top few. Small correction: Baroda Expressway is 4 lanes+Shoulder.

4. chiplun - ratnagiri highway for the scenic beauty

5. jammu - srinagar (because of the thrills it used to give me climbing up at 60 kmph .

Few roads that I love are:-
Ranchi-Khunti-Tamar (80kms) : perfect tarmac, lots of twisties, nice vistas and minimal traffic.
Jaisalmer-Bikaner : absolutely amazing road and zero traffic. Love it.
Gangtok-Nathu La : scintillating views all along the way and lovely drive.
Sarahan-Sangla : very very scenic and great surface.
ECR : fast, smooth and terrific.

My first choice is NICE Road, Bangalore, which is really nice. Recently, I crossed 160 kmph in my Fiat Linea for the first time. It was sheer blissful experience.
