Funny you mention that. As a young lad, my grandfather, dad and myself would hitch up the fishin' boat and drive from LA to Crescent City in the summer to go salmon fishing.



I know Crescent City better than I should!

You should stay in California, that's where all the best roads are, weather too. Up here it's just 50 and raing cats and dogs right now, not fit for man nor beast.



I did get to see if my new Aerostitch Darian pants (in Hi-Vz Yaller, thank you) were water proof..(they are) and comfy... (that too) but overall it's just nasty out and really, it's like this almost all year. Don't know why we put up with it really....must be nuts.



On the plus side I'm probably faster in the wet than most of you pikers on dry roads...but I digress, no nice roads here...I hear Utah's really nice, you might try them. Just stay out of their mountains and meadows on your duel sport. They're funny about that I guess..

Hey, I went drift boat fishing on the upper Sac last weekend. Sorry about Crescent City though.

You should direct that apology towards my saintly mother who was forced to sit in a KOA campground with three young daughters under the gloomiest skies imagineable while the men went fishin!

You should be fine in Utah if you ride a "duel" sport. Dual sports might be a problem. I find that wearing a .44mag Blackhawk solves most of those pesky problems.



Better to just avoid Utah altogether. Who on Earth would be interested in seeing Arches, Canyonlands' White Rim, Zion, Bryce, Kodachrome Basin, Capital Reef, Goblin Valley, Monument Valley, etc......



Under no circumstances ride through Logan Canyon. What a bore.

The Loop- N. GA. Get on georgiasportbike.com and ask anyone the route. It treks through 5 counties and 4 state and us hwys. Very cool.

ALL of US 129 From Cleveland GA through Deals Gap. It's gotta be 100 plus miles of very smile friendly riding.

Keep this up and you must be killed.



Everybody else, pay no attention to this troublemaker. Idaho is nothing but a bleak desert, parched in the summer and desolate as Anarctica in the winter. If the crater pocked wagon roads they call highways don't get you, crazed Neo-Nazis will. Remember every negative thing you have heard about Idaho and multiply it 100 times and you will begin to get the picture. Tell your friends to stay away, too, for their sake.

I hear they're pretty picky about spelling too....



I've only ever drove through there on my way to visit my ex's crew in Oklahoma. Pretty place from what I saw.
