There's definitely SOMETHING getting sanded off there!

Took the mirror right off that Chevy. That looked painful.

I suppose, to be absolutely correct, I should have said "the Rocky Mountain West", having lived in New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, and Idaho most of my life and having ridden extensively in every other state "out West". Thanks for offering me the chance to clarify!

The other HUGE difference I've noticed "back East" is that there are only rarely any shoulders to the roads; you literally have the white line along the edge and then it's the ditch or bushes and trees. I'm told one reason there are no shoulders is that these roads don't typically have to have large volumes of snow plowed off of them over a period of many months, so there's no reason to have a place to push it out of the driving lanes or store it until it melts. That little fact makes for some very narrow roads and with no run-off room to the right. I'm sure many folks tend to push it a little to the left and into the on-coming lane. The narrow roads surely force you to pay more attention to drifting out around a left turn.

A lot of roads out here weren't originally built as highways for high-speed vehicles, either, but were pioneered by horses and wagons so there are numerous decreasing-radius turns that can catch you off guard and force you out of your lane and into something stupid.

C'mon Man!

The damn road has been there for YEARS, immobile and unchanging.

YOU decide what speed and line to use, vigilance and judgement are often the razor thin margin between a close call and becoming an accident statistic!

Yup, but the people who ride into the area from out-of-state haven't been there for YEARS, and are probably seeing the road for the first, and perhaps last, time if they insist on riding at a pace beyond their ability to interpret and react...

The sad thing is that most of these people are not going that fast.From the times I have been on that road you are lucky if you even get to go the speed limit.
