My favourite road on a bike in the Baltics must be the A3 from Riga crossing into Estonia just after Valga and on to Tartu and Lake Pepsei.

Once away from Riga it becomes a superb undulating road with fast curves through beautiful enchanting 'old world' big countryside with small farms and villages, dotted among lakes, woods and open countryside. I love this road, fast or slow. Now done it 4 times.

All roads in Lith, Lat and Est are very, very good. If you want loose dirt roads the whole region has woodland/forest tracks everywhere which appear to be available for unrestricted use. look at Margus's photos on one of the threads below.

Some threads about this area (there will be others I am sure) are

Estonia!

Estonia is home to the most beautiful women in the world. What you'll mostly have to watch out for in Tallinn is to try to stay on the road and not drive into street-lamps while looking at the ridiculous plethora of insanely gorgeous blondes.
I am jealous of your upcoming trip.
Be sure to take the ferry out to the Islands of Saaremaa and Hiiumaa...beautiful. Tallinn is incredible and has a magnificent old city; Tartu is the hottest college town in the world, absolutely exploding with ridiculously hot blondes. Did I mention that?
Hope you're single. Have fun.

I agree that all the girls have come out of the same factory - stunning long legged tanned blondes. I can recommend staying at the Barclay Hotel in Tartu see Barclay Hotell . If you can afford it take the suite with Sauna.
I would say that Tartu is much nicer than Tallin.
