You guys took an awesome route. I was almost expecting a straight shot using interstates across the deserts of west Texas and southern NM and AZ.

Totally agree. I mean most people think it's a great feat to ride across America. But for him to do it on a 250, that took some serious cojones.

No sir. We took back roads for 95% of it. We only took 3 interstates: I-10 from home to Destin beach (boring ride I've done before), I-25 from Raton, NM to Colorado Springs (there is no good alternative) and I-15 from Utah into ) Las Vegas (again, no good alternative).

Staying off the interstate made the ride a million times more enjoyable. I met more people, stopped in weird towns, and ate unique things (like deep fried alligator legs in mississippi).
