My ol' lady and I (she actually wants to do this!Is she a bad ass or what?) are planning a cross country road trip. We plan to get going towards the end of July. We will depart NorCal and take the I-80 for a few hundred miles, passing through Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, and South Dakota (We would prefer to avoid Nebraska, damn helmet law!). Getting back home (we don’t have a clear itinerary yet), we will go through Iowa, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansa, Louisianna, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. If any of you know of a decent hangout that we should not miss along the way, please let us know the name, location and any other information that is useful. We would like to stay close to I80, don’t want to stray too far from our route (due to many of my brain cells being KIA by massive amounts of alcohol over the years, I have an amazing gift of getting in trouble with the locals). Also, if there are any righteous shops worth visiting on the way, we will be very thankful for the info. To make things more fun, if you are in a club and are willing to offer some company, let me buy you a cold drink, and meet a good ol’ SOB like myself, let me know, it’ll be my priveledge to swing on by and chat with you. I would like to ride in no-helmet-law states for as much of the trip as possible (I get enough of that dog bowl on my head in California). Now for the difficult part: if there are any areas you think we should keep out of or pass through very very fast, feel free to warn us! If there are any groups of people roaming free with the buffalo that we should stay away from, give us a clue so that we don’t get our arses kicked for nothing! I would also appreciate any information you can give me regarding gun laws in each state (carrying it on the bike; concealed, not concealed) Well, that is all for now, my email is email@example.com. Thank you, Zabba has spoken, therefore he is! http://www.geocities.com/zabba_zabuka/0621200 Zabba has spoken, therefore he is!
