Could peruse Killboy for a few minutes and find a shot of what you thought you saw pretty easily.

Some great pics from Killboy in this month's Motorcyclist including a doppelganger where this one Harley dude runs WAY off coarse and runs into his virtual twin. Good stuff.

The D558 from Garde-la-Freinet to St Tropez in the south of France. Short but squiggly like the Dragon's Tail, and with the legendary resort (and its legendary babes) at the southern end.

A long flat straight road from Colorado to Nebraska......hmmm, that looks like fun.





I'll give one away here, SR 97 from the Columbia River Gorge to Yakima........sage brush and tumbleweeds with elevation changes and twisties straight out of the wild west. Nothing out there but rattlers and coyotes.



It's funny really that Washington on Oregon are supposed to be all evergreens and lakes and stuff. From the Cascades to the coast, yes but the other 75% of both states is desert sage brush and tumbleweeds so bleak a rattlesnake has to carry a lunch pail...Why do you think they stuck the Hanford Nuke plant out there?

Yeah, but everyone there gets a free emergency room to lay in for a week with the bone from the compound fracture sticking out of their leg.

I'll give you two:
  1. Highways 12, 24, and 95 in southern Utah. Astounding beauty, 5 National Parks and Recreation Area (Zion, Bryce, Capitol Reef, Lake Powell, and Natural Bridges), 24 and 95 are empty enough that you can go hours without seeing another vehicle, and the low vegetation gives good sightlines and makes it pretty difficult for a LEO or an animal large enough that you can't run it over to hide.
  2. Highway 191 in Arizona near the NM border from Alpine to Clifton. Long, twisty, beautiful scenery. It reminds me of a desert version of the Cherohala.

One of the most-disturbing pics I've seen is of an obvious local in a 4WD IH-Scout on The Gap, driving 110% in the left lane on a blind curve...............



(he was actually partly over the WHITE line)

If Europe would just hurry-up and invent Fire, or Agriculture, stop living in caves an' shyte - it might actually be a nice place to visit...............
