In the MSNBC pic, did anyone else notice the bonehead who's riding in the oncoming lane?

Who could disagree with that list!



Oddball suggestion for consideration: Nebraska State Route 2 from Grand Island to Alliance. Straight through the heart of the Sand Hill Country - Willa Cather land. 100+ miles of hilly grassland. Much more interesting than the run from CO into KS.

I know of a number 11.



And I'm not telling anyone where it is.

I'm sure many folks here know about the Arkansas roads, but last year I had to drive from St. Louis to Longview Texas, and I had the opportunity to drive through Arkansas. I would have never in a million years expected it to be so beautiful. I was on the Scenic 7, but since then I've investigated Ark roads and they are quite notorious for being great riding roads. HSTA has a lot of info.

maladq, you need to ride north off 2 on any of those Sand Hill's secondary roads that run through sand hill lake country. Absolutely desolate and beautiful and no cars. Need to pee, then just stop and do it. This whole area of Nebraska is just awesome, especially if rains have greened up the Sand Hills like they have this year. Go north all the way to 275. Pick one that is pock marked with lakes. Won't regret it.

I had the same impression a few years ago. Those Ozarks are beautiful.



Man, I read a story like that, it's 8 am, I'm sitting in work on a Friday, my boss is already gone for the weekend, the bike is parked out back, she said the commute just ain't cuttin' it...



Palomar here we come!

If it's the Deal's Gap picture he was heading in the other (correct) direction.



Not that that never happened...

You, are so right. I took a quick look and it appeared that I was looking at the front of his bike. Duh.

I just got back from a weekend on the Durango Loop. That was a particularly awesome ride. Especially the very technical twisty bit after Ouray. Very very awesome. Think they had to knock the smile off my face with a ballpeen hammer. Even got a by from a cop who had me dead to rights on the straight back into Durango.
