When I think about moving , the first thing I wonder is "will the roads there be as fun as the ones here?" .

First off, get a motard or dual sport bike and you won't have to worry about the roads ending. laugh out loud
There has only been one time I wished the ride would end and maybe CyberPoet can relate. I was riding north on 7 mile bridge in Florida, coming from the Florida Keys. I had to make the trip that day. The weather was nasty, and winds very high. I was riding on the bridge leaning sideways like I was in some awesome twistie. Trying as hard as I could to keep her straight and having to lean to do so.

If the autobahn can survive in germany for all this time, it just goes to show how bad the drivers really are over here in the states..

As long as people think like that, there will never be adequate enough training in the US.

As for roads....I guess I would have to say that we are pretty lucky here. Twisties, straights, mountains...we have it all pretty much. Lots and lots of roads. Mostly because once you get out of the urban areas, we have alot of wilderness in Quebec. So you can go for miles and miles and miles in between towns. Ontario is pretty good too. The area the Ottawa boys took us to (where we were by the lake and playing in that curve) was really sweet. I would have to say that road was one of my favorites that I ever rode on. Thanks again for that day Range...it was great. I think it was just because it was so damn smooth. We might have the same scenery here in Qc, but the potholes spoil it.

I totally agree we need better training, and I would love to see a tiered licensing program. Shoot, I would like to see the state require a license to buy a bike, at least a learners permit that covers bikes. Right now you don't need one, unless you want to test ride one.
