    In this thread we can post a favorite ride/drive. What road do you love to go down? Why is the road worth the ride? I have a handful of different rides that I will post, Some in Illinois others from east to west coast. Feel free to add pictures.

    If you only rent a car, put 15 miles a week on it and have never been west of I-95 in South Carolina then you don't need nor should you participate.

    Rt 66 deemed the mother road by John Steinbeck in The Grapes of Wrath.

    Went out for a six hour ride today, went down Rt 66, the mother road. Road it before from Chicago to LA,then up to San Francisco and back. Nothing like seeing the country and Rt. 66 is full of Americana. It seems that no matter what town you're in you can find something unique. One has the best fried chicken, the other one has the best BBQ. I only wish today I had longer and didn't have to come home to let the kids in, I could have had some beer and a little herb.

    Once you become staff you're supposed to refrain from being a cunt.

    Old Frankfort Pike going towards Versailles, Ky. You can go straight and see lots of beautiful horse farms, or detour and seek out Bourbon distilleries or strange rural sights.

    Rt 1 from San Francisco to Carmel is the absolute best ride. Best of all worlds, winding roads, mountains on one side, ocean on the other. Gave me a boner the whole way.

    HWY 12 between Idaho and Montana is as beautiful a road as I've ever seen.
