Watch your asses Utah!

Did anyone else see this? I guess it's not all that surprising, you know what it's like out there...

In my opinion, it don't take a math wiz to know, the more traffic, the more deaths.
I have been using Google Earth to plan less traveled routes.

Yeah, I saw that too. I usually try and travel the less populated routes but if you want to put in any amount of miles, you've got to get out into traffic sometime.

How true, last year I took my truck over to get shwabbed with some new tires, rode the bike home, 8 miles or so, did the Google Earth thing and printed a map, still had to ride 4100 South for a mile, funny, some days its like I was in a wheel chair the way they give us room, other days its like they are trying to kill me.

I get out to 7200 and State sometimes, a store I shop at.
Got a friend lives in Magna, and my son and family are now in Kearns, I will coast all the way home from that ride.

Man it's nice to have Utah folk here.
