Two reasons why the freeway is bad…

For the first reason, refer to the Matrix – too many Agents.
The second reason has been elaborated by Robert M. Pirsig. On a motorcycle the freeway feels to me at the same time boring and dangerous – no curves to take, speeds are high, no room for error, lots of cages all over the place. The twisty country road in the hills is the antithese of the freeway from a moto-perspective and trying to go fast on those is great fun (and usually, but not always, less dangerous). I’m sharing this since I’m currently drooling over some BMW’s which are ideal backroad material: the Dakar, a good looking and performing dual sport, and Lars’s friend’s R100GS which will be for sale soon (has a lot of miles though).
