I love the eastern portion of Oregon and California. Not much of Cali though and your in Nevada or Arizona. I've ridden 300 miles out there and only got 50 miles farther north or south from where I started. But same goes for Arkansas. Some roads I've been on are just now being talked about as some of the better roads to travel.Porky said:I love Oregon! Much to my surprise, I found out that at least the eastern half of OR was all desert, with no one around and very few using the roads. Desolate hardly describes the area.
I agree! I actually like getting on the "big" highway and burning up some miles.There are times when I really enjoy a long straight road. It's good to see that there are still vast, wide open spaces in this country that are still somewhat close to the way nature made them.
(Especially after riding around in little circles in densely populated areas of Florida.)
The Sandhills are mesmerizing... the crown jewel of Nebraska, IMO.Been across both several times on secondary roads with zero miles on the Interstate. Loved it! Especially the Sandhills!
One of the main criteria when building I-80 across Nebraska was following the path of least resistance. That's why it bores most travelers to tears.If you like long straight miles try South Dakota or Nebraska on the interstates. Each one seems endless when you are on it and does not have many twists and turns.
