Fast living and fast riding go hand-in-hand when you're cruisin' on Route 54. Leaving from Goddard, KS and traveling to Pratt, the only word that can describe the landscape is "prairie". Small rolling hills coved by tall grass with interspersed shrubbery are punctuated by the pungent smells of slaughterhouses.
We stopped for lunch at a chinese restaurant (which shall remain un-named) to hopefully get a taste to remind us of late night NYC devour-ment sessions. The hospitality was truly there, but the cuisine took us to a dark place that looked nothing like Brooklyn, NY. Perhaps General Tso really does live in Chinatown, NYC.
Last night we gave a little bit back to our friends in the film industry by going to see the latest Jackass Movie. I can't decide which was more sad, the movie or the slaughterhouses. I would guess the slaughterhouses. As we passed one of these awful, yet necessary (I love a good steak), slaughterhouses we were immobilized by the shrieks and calls put forth by the corralled cattle. "They know what is going on, and they know there is nothing they can do about it," Dan told me as we rolled into town.
Though Route 54 can be a little mundane we are spicing up our riding tomorrow with a whole new theme, riding with a Special Guest!
