On The Road – Droning

7 Sep

Spent today on the interstate, crossing four states in the process of getting somewhere fun to ride, and I realized why I dislike the interstate so much: it’s not motorcycling.

The act of changing directions and changing speeds, i.e. operating the motorcycle, is the fun part for me. None of that happens on the interstate – you go straight, at a relatively constant speed. And it’s a relatively fast speed, and it’s boring and your mind wanders (it has to), which isnt a great combination.

Still, it’s a necessary evil. Not all interesting roads are connected by interesting roads.
