u know when you are touring you have to travel city to city by bike, the best way would be by highway, now if you get hit by a car at highway speed you are dead. how do tourers stay alive? do they use the back trails and suffer, the back roads are pretty rough and bumpy and will slow you down. another solution would be an ebike. but you need to recharge, so a gas bike would be better. or a car, it is safer, you won't get hit and instant deathed.
