I never done any track dayz but want to. Just cant afford it right now. I know ppl dont like what i pick "Spirited Freeway Riding". Only if traffic is thin and its not everyday. The Spirited Backroads Riding are dangerous because there are not enuff room for mistakes. I have had my scare on those rides and bikes passing me on turns. cars a bigger and easier to see than other bikes. But Im a new rider and still learning.

I never thought haulin on a freeway was safer than backroads. At least you have a shot at going into a pasture!

Go down on a freeway and that's about it.

back roads, hit an animal, hit a car pulling out, hit a pole when you go off, hit a tree if you go off..


highway, get ran over by a car, go off and hit a sign....


both are pretty dangerous..(or can be)

When it gets cooler, I'm gonna give the track another try. The track doesn't have any ghosts, midgets, transvestites, cemeteries, abandoned houses, curious oddities, etc., but there are a lot of freaks out there.

I just sort of interpreted it as "long ride." But it always seems better to explore any new place on the bike than the car...and I guess it depends on whether you're rushing from point A to B without stopping to check stuff out in between.

I do a lot of commuting on my bike and cannot say I hate it, save for when it's 100 degrees of life draining heat. I also enjoy back roads rides, but I'm more of a civilized mid-pace rider, I will never do triple digits on a two lane road. I just don't feel the urge to prove myself to anyone.

Nothing better than some casual/spirited CR riding especially with winter on the way love the cold. Agree that highway riding is some boring IMO, alot of danger since highways are cluttered with debris.
