Around Elan Valley dam's, then over the mountain road to Devils Bridge and Aberystwyth, up the coast road north  for a bit, then back via Machynlleth, Newtown to Cross Gates - cracking road, but a bit 'sports bike' maybe?

Talgarth, Brecon, Upper Chapel road towards Builth, Beulah then towards Tregaron, but head for Llandovery around Llyn Brianne dam's
'before you get there

Abergavenny, Llanthony  (call at Llanthony Priory for a look) then over Gospel Pass to Hay-on-Wye for a mooch - the Mrs would probably enjoy this one more than you though Very Happy

let us know the dates and we'll hook up a road ride - my missus only tonight said she's missing the BMW - I like the run from Abergavenny through the black mountains past LLanthony then into Hay on Wye - lovely valley

You could camp at the Ancient Briton, cracking pub and your at the foot of the Beacons then.
