John I could probably name 30 of the lower 48 states that fit that description. Lol.

Congrats RayJoe on your 50th anniversary as a rider. I got a late start as a motorcycle rider and have been at it for 44 years. I was in my 30s when I got my first bike, a 74 Honda CB550 Four. Since then I have had many bikes of various sizes. At one time I had 5 motorcycles in my shop... two Goldwings and three dirt bikes. I presently have two 1500s now. I wish I had kept up a little on how many miles I have ridden but I don't really know. It would be a lot though.... I have been to most states except up in the northeast. Mostly from Alabama, where I live, out through the western and southern states. I can't ride much at all lately because my wife is bedridden and I can't get away much anymore.
