I'm looking at getting in a lot of good riding in riding this spring, so I've been playing around with Google maps a lot. Since I don't like riding the interstate on the KLR, I usually plan trips around highways and parks where I can camp for free/cheap. And I was struck a little by the fact that I was avoiding the big cities... Are big cities a bad place to take a motorcycle on a budget? I feel like I'd be afraid for my bike (even if it is a KLR ) and affordable lodging would be difficult to come across. I just look at the map and think about how I've never even seen the Atlantic or been to New York or blah blah blah, but I don't want to go to any of the big cities. Anybody else like this? Do I worry too much?
