Thumbs up Not all Kansas roads are straight!

I took advantage of the 70 F weather to test my new Kontour Seat and scrub in my new PR2 tires.

this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?

Re: Not all Kansas roads are straight!

Anyone can photoshop a road sign. So where are the actual curves?

We call them trees, in other states they are called telephone poles.

there is a tree, just before the curve.

Re: Not all Kansas roads are straight!

There are some curves in Kansas marked 25 mph and they mean it. I have ridden some that say 25 mph at 60 and said what curve. Yes there are some nice curves in Kansas-they are just few and normally far between.

Thumbs up Re: Not all Kansas roads are straight!

The are some great curvy roads in the Flint Hills South & East of Manhattan. A group of us rode over 350 miles of them early this spring then camped at a primitive little camp ground North East of Manhattan. The only problem was the smoke from the locals burning off the old grass that weekend.

--Thats OK I don't care--
