Out here in the West, there are still truly remote roads far from cities, with virtually no traffic. I love the feeling of having all that asphalt and scenery to myself, of being far from anyone else. At least until something goes wrong... If your bike breaks, you can sit beside these roads for hours and never see another vehicle, especially at night. There is usually no cellular service, and the nearest source of assistance may be hours on foot. And these days you can no longer count on every driver who passes to stop and help someone who is obviously stranded. Even 30 years ago, I spent two hours on a road in northern Michigan where traffic was light, but far from absent, before some other motorcyclists stopped to offer aid. A cop went by without acknowledging my attempt to flag him down. If you ride isolated roads where you might get stranded, be prepared to fend entirely for yourself, perhaps overnight. At the minimum, that means having water and warm clothes, and you may want protection from the sun.
