Greetings from half a world away - I'm in Hang Dong, Thailand prepping a KTM 450EXC for an Enduro race tomorrow (Christmas Eve). Yep - I'm back into competition/race mode. I am in BigDog's camp - my favorite state was Nevada. I love wide open scenery with no people in it, and Nevada wins that hands down. Close second was Utah for the wide variety of riding - pine forests, sand, canyons, almost but not quite singletrack, and wide open space in western Utah. Ohioroadrat - funny, but for part of our ride, we were chasing a single set of tracks for a day and a half, but that rider turned off the trail for a while to see some other things. Otherwise, it sure is a lonely place out there, and that is what draws me to it. Happy Holidays to all.
