Plain and simple. One of my goals in life is to ride in all 50 states. I have maybe the hardest to get, Hawaii. When I was 17 and enlisted in the AF, I got orders to Bellows AFS in Waimanalo. Uncle Sugar would ship one POV from Oakland Army Terminal to Pearl Harbor but I had to get it there. I rode my new 1980 Yamaha 650 Special to Oakland and picked up at Pearl a month later (slow boat I guess, or maybe because I was an E-1).
That bike was my only mode of transportation the first year I was there. I didn't ride it all the way, but I got as close as possible.
Alaska is the only one remaining on my list. To get there I have to cross Canada. But with 2 DWI's on my record, I can't drive there much less even ENTER!
So- what's the perception of someone that rents a bike and rides in a state. Is it cheating? I sure want to color that state in but I know of no other way to do it other than flying there and renting.
