Yes, I do.

I don't know where that picture was taken, but in at least Oregon and Idaho some traces of the Oregon Trail are still visible. And, I am talking about the original wagon ruts, not the parts that have been paved over.

Of course, the moment I snapped the shot a car came tearing around the corner and we lept onto our bikes in racing fashion and each pegged the tachometer making haste haste for the horizon

we were either in eastern Montana or in North Dakota already ... but we stopped to fix my buds XM antenna in the middle of bum no where ... there was a farm building up the road a mile or 2 but beyond that we would only see a car every 10 mins (we were there for a good 30-40 minutes routing calbles) ... and not once did anyone stop or slow down and ask us if we needed anything... LOL

Both somewhere in Cambodia. Forgot where exactly though.

Bike in the second pic is a Honda XR250 Baja by the way. The ultimate Dirt Bike around there.

And yes, these are both official Highways!

Too bad to, what with the cool starting ramp.
