I know there is an east coast run that allows this, but it should be all runs. Volumes of passengers would soar, and rail ticket prices would drop.
I have sent in email to some of the railroad lines, and they thank me for the input, and that is as far as it goes. I'm thinking that some kind of mass mailing might work. Thoughts?
I promised them that, if they would do this, I would spend all my remaining vacations traveling by train with either my street bike or my dualsport. The dualsport is what has me drooling over this solution. I have a 450, and that is too small to run highways for long miles. Anything bigger means that single track becomes a nightmare. But imagine riding down to your local train depot......next stop....Moab!
With gas prices where they are, isn't it time to make this happen?
