Awesome stuff you are writing....
It's great reading the RR from all over the world but I gotta think the skinny blue highways of the US are just about as good in almost every way. Heck of a story here and I like your style of staying on the little roads. My experience has taught me there are far more stories and interesting things that can't be seen from the interstate highways. My cyber hat is off to you for providing us with this story about your travels.
Ride safe there man.....
