 Subject: US 30 yes; I-80 no.

I hadn't planned on starting in the West, but with a riding partner that might be a plan. I really could do w/o the area from Bend, OR to Mt Rushmore again, but it could be OK after all this time

I really am going to do the Blue Highways thing and try to stay away from freeways. That and the fact that I haven't been on a bike for an extended period of time at more than about 45 mph Smile (Good thing I edit everything; I originally typed '456 mph' Very Happy ).

Don't think it'll happen this summer. Will probably just do Oregon again. Wheels has invited me to Eugene for a ride, so we could have some kind of get-together around there. That's kind of a hike for you, though. We could camp out in my sister's back yard it Springfield Razz

We can make some long-range plans one of these days. That will, of course, involve someone buying me a bike and making sure it's in good enough condition that I can hop off the plane and onto the 250 Cheers

 Subject: Well, I still miss the midwest thunderstorms...

But those aren't so compatible with motorcycling. I do still have a soft spot for Chicago as well.

I'd ride west coast to plains with you, assuming your plans include that and my time & finances concur Smile Many thousands of miles have I seen of I-80 and US-30 and I'm starting to miss them...

 Subject: They could be in Sioux Falls for 2-3 years before the internet found them :)

I really liked Sioux Falls for the time I lived there (6 months over a winter) but it's not the kind of place everyone talks about a lot Very Happy

I really miss the Midwest; I wouldn't want to live there again soon, but I always liked driving through, especially since that's how I got to Grandma & Grandpa's. One of these years I'll do that Plains to the East moto tour I've been thinking about.

 Subject: Good point, but

a quick (admittedly haphazard) look at google doesn't show those statues in any of those locations, either. I dunno

i can't find anything on that sculpture though. i'm guessing they're non-permanent.

 Subject: Trash Day

With nowhere left to hide, the GRR plaque took refuge at the local zoo and was accidentally taken out with the trash. Oops...

Note to self: hiding in giraffe dung is a smelly proposition
