One more thing. There are douchebags everywhere and some of the motorcycle stereotypes are easy to make fun of. From the pirate HD owner to the Power Ranger sport biker rider to the wannabe adventurer in the full on BMW with matching BMW gear. In spite of all that, if you get beyond your own city it's a tight group of people who are pretty nice to each other.
While on the road I've been offered to stay in an air conditioned tree house in Kansas while being given a tour of the owner's historical schoolhouse across the street.
While in West Virginia at a brewpub I was offered a place to camp in a beautiful hidden holler at the guy's house.
I could go on and on.
From this biker to all the other bikers in gigposter land. You ever need a place to camp in Alaska hit me up. My property is available.
