Well if I had a choice, I'd steer clear of America. That place is a shit hole.

Nothing but ass holes and fat chicks.

...and road cyclists.

FUCK 'EM!

The first time it was because I asked a cop what time it was and thanked him when he told me. Probable cause was my suspicious use of manners (seriously). It's been downhill from there.

Just wondered amongst other things if you avoid certain places, for example cities towns or even whole countries?

Also why do you?

Many thanks

Where are you planning to go? To the EU for starters, I suppose, based on your location now. Instead of where to avoid, I'd point you toward where to go.

When I'm heading west, I wish I could find a good way to avoid Houston. Its just like a big blister on the ass.

Any city run into the ground by the Demo-Nazis. Detroit is a good example.

Just me I bet.....
I do this too. Better scenery, fewer people to deal with, generally friendlier people to deal with when you do need to deal with people.

In general, I avoid cities when I can. I don't like being places where there is a high concentration of people.

I avoid interstates, large cities, and anywhere in the Northeast. To a lesser extent I try to avoid states that don't have the courtesy to honor my CCW with reciprocity.

Occasionally I have to go into towns on a trip to get oil, a tire, beer, etc. Otherwise I try to keep it as rural as possible.

I'm just going to point out;

Political parties have fuck all to do with the unfortunate state of this country.

....and for thinking otherwise you've proven yourself to be under educated or ill informed.

Either way this isn't something you can blame on puppets.


George Carlin put this quite eloquently;

"Now, there's one thing you might have noticed I don't complain about: politicians. Everybody complains about politicians. Everybody says they suck. Well, where do people think these politicians come from? They don't fall out of the sky. They don't pass through a membrane from another reality. They come from American parents and American families, American homes, American schools, American churches, American businesses and American universities, and they are elected by American citizens. This is the best we can do folks. This is what we have to offer. It's what our system produces: Garbage in, garbage out. If you have selfish, ignorant citizens, you're going to get selfish, ignorant leaders. Term limits ain't going to do any good; you're just going to end up with a brand new bunch of selfish, ignorant Americans. So, maybe, maybe, maybe, it's not the politicians who suck. Maybe something else sucks around here... like, the public. Yeah, the public sucks. There's a nice campaign slogan for somebody: 'The Public Sucks. Fuck Hope.'"

Live and let live baby.

Shut the fuck up and have fun. It sucks for everyone if that's what you choose to focus on.

You can always leave..

I want to share a personal phobia with you friends. I can climb over a mountain and i can dive in to a deep sea. South to West and North to East can be my destinations but i can not spend time in desert. I must say that i feel that i have been come in to a odd world or in to a previous centuries.
It can be a surprising thing for you but its true...Even i did not visit Sahara ever because of this reason.

Deep, soft sand on a street bike! I hit that on road construction in five different stretches of about 50-60 yards each. Each one seemed like a mile but somehow I made it by opening the throttle all the way on each section!

Yeah...Interstates and population centers of more than 50 - 100k people unless there's a need.

Washington DC on a federal holiday weekend. To make it worse, mother nature tossed in a heat wave.
