In the States? I wish. I've thought a lot about the the way roads are laid out in France. Even in farming area's there are tons of little roads cris-crossing in every direction. I think this must have had to do with the fact that this farmland was settled so long before the advent of motorized travel. Also farms tended to be much smaller. There just isn't that kind of history in the USA. Even in New England.

As far the rally is concerned, in France there is there is a culture of letting people take responsibility for their own risks (thou that seems to slowly be changing, 100hp max ?).

Most people I spoke with are surprised that in this day and age it's still possible. They wonder how much longer they'll be able to run this event. It really is unique. The next closest thing is the IOM. But that's pure racing.

I figured, you only live once! As a M/C fanatic I couldn't resist!
