Here's your answer: "One of my goals in life is to ride in all 50 states..." Your stated goal is to ride "in" every state, not "to" every state. Problem solved. If you've done all 50 states on a bike and survived to talk about it, you shouldn't give 2 shits what anyone says. It's your goal, no one elses.
“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!” - HST
