Short trips down the interstate are OK, but are usually just a means of getting somewhere to do some backroads for me. It's just too boring to take a long ride and I hate being around semis in my cage to say nothing of being on the bike. They're just no fun.

Short trips arent bad and as long as the weather is good it is still 10xs better then a car.

Short trips are OK. Not as much fun as back roads that is for sure.

I avoid interstate travel at all costs. When I head to VT to visit family, it takes me an extra 3 hrs (6 1/2 total) just because I hate the interstate so much.

In this part of B.C. Canada we do NOT have massive interstate hwys. So when I say 5 or 8 hrs of the Mtn hwys that means basically 2-lane twisty up & down mtn roads along with some that have four lanes so those I prefer over doodling around the back roads in the lower gears & with hope I will not hit gravel all over the next bend.

I've got 2400 miles of freeway driving to look forward to next month, so I guess I'll learn to love it.......Any riding is better than no riding.....

I love riding. Doesn't matter where I'm riding. Of course backroads are better, but I even get pumped on the highway.

If Im not turning, accelerating or braking I'll get bored. I only put up with a boring Hwy to get to the roads that are good.
