I talk to and see posts from lots of people who say that the riding where they live isn't very good, and they have to travel several hours to get to good twisties and sufficient Z-axis. These people typically live on the plains, or in Florida, or similar flat areas. How many people here deliberately left this sort of place to go somewhere with better riding? I certainly did. I grew up in the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains, where there were plenty of turns and elevation changes on "normal" roads and even better true mountain roads just a short hop away. Then I went to college and got a job out in the flatlands. It actually took me a while to figure out what was missing, why the roads were boring, and why all the "parks" were just grass and monkey bars. There weren't any mountains! So, I quit my job, packed up my life, and moved the whole operation to the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, which is among the best riding country in the US. I'm much happier here, and there are absolutely fantastic roads just off my doorstep. If you aren't willing to relocate for better riding, why not? I get that moving is a pain, but if riding is a big part of your life and something that brings you lots of happiness then why not put yourself where the best riding is? Dedicated surfers tend to live by the ocean, right?
