I have had tons of advice from others. One day at a park, a good spot to pee and check nature out on a good alpha road in WI, a HD rider comes over and we talk.
He rides a lot and tipped me off to some really good roads I would not have known otherwise. His bike had almost 100k miles on it.
Good talk. Good guy.
So, I always talk with people. I might not agree but I might just learn something.
You never know...
