DouglasR Posted November 2, 2007 Share Posted November 2, 2007 Well, it's a done deal now. Love makes a person do funny things. After living in Wyoming for 34 years (since I was 16) I have met a lovely lady from Virginia and decided to relocate to be closer to her. Virginia is For Lovers, you know. It hasn't hurt that Virginia is also loaded with fantastic motorcycling roads, literally EVERYWHERE you go. OK, maybe not in the DC metro area, but the rest of this area is simply outstanding! My new home is in Lexington, Virginia, a small quaint town of about 7,000 people located in the upper (southern extreme) Shennandoah Valley between the Alleghany and Blue Ridge Mountains. There are NO straight roads in the region. Even the Interstate is twisty and enjoyable to ride (well, at times...). So after 34 years in the West I'd had enough of the ugly, dry, empty, windswept, barren country. I mean, Wyoming and the surrounding country is just not a lot of fun to ride scooters in. Take a look at the rugged conditions motorcyclists are forced to endure in that God-foresaken country: And that's just a sampling of some of the less-offensive spots in that State; it gets worse as you get into the more remote areas: Check out this Hell-hole! Or this place, OMG what a dump! And the surrounding States aren't much better. Utah: Colorado: Arizona: Idaho: Montana: Oregon: Washington: OK, so British Columbia is stunning. It's the exception for the West. More torture in a minute.... I'll download this sad tale of a mis-spent life in chunks. Link to comment
