I try to avoid Interstates and any room with a TV in it.
In addition to any metropolitan area and toll roads, I avoid McDonald's at all costs.
I suppose that makes me un-American or something.
...anywhere east of I-25 or south of I-40.
In addition to large cities - popular National Parks (in the South 48, that is. When I cross the road in front of my house I'm in the largest - Wrangell-St Elias), and twisties in deer country at night.
Also avoid camping along salmon streams when I see bear tracks or poop, or on a road or trail that is too rough or muddy for me to outrun a grizzly.
Might as well make that all of West Texas and a whole bunch of Oklahoma as well
Charles DeGaule (CDG) International Airport, France, would be my NUMBER ONE!
Those people lose my baggage EVERY firkin time I simply pass through.
And coming in second has to be Chicago O'Hare.
Why does every connection include a passage through the tunnel of lights and weird sounds? What they say about Chicago is doubly true for O'Hare, in that there are just two seasons: Winter and Construction.
Just my POV-- parts of the midwest are gorgeous-- but many others are just not. Take Indiana-- it's cornfield after cornfield-- might be worth skipping that state :)
I Try to avoid the interstates ... loaded with cagers and cruisers ...
I avoid... Shopping malls, banks, India, police stations, New Jersey, and clowns.
In all my travels, I've never visited an angrier, more depressing town than Browning Mt. Went through once and thought maybe it was my imagination. Cruised thru a second time and results were the same.
What is it about Browning?
I agree and have said so to other riders. Just get your gas and get out. Bad vibes.
Avoid any and all national restaraunts - only go to local, mom & pop cafes and diners when traveling. Also avoid all ER's.
Poor native community that has lost 1/2 its' population since 1960??
How many do you have?
Mexico and Kansas are on my flyover list.
Riding at night.
Trying to find a reasonable price motel after 5pm.
what the hell, ANY major city center.
Speeding and violating other traffic laws.
Never pass a gas station if you are even half full.
Look after yourself and your bike. Keep yourself warm/cool, dry, hydrated, fed. Keep your bike in top shape.
Invest in good gear and wear it.
If you even THINK you need to stop for a while...stop for a while as soon as it is safe to do so.
Ride your own ride. Don't try and follow faster riders/drivers. Stop when you feel like it, go when you feel like it.
Trust your instincts and act accordingly.
I have two, both now deceased. I naturally seek to avoid meeting them, and especially don't want to go where I think they went.
Any large, urban inner city!
Deer country after dark.
