Interesting, I was going to say the same thing but call it "day dreaming" .... lol.
But I guess for me, a interesting road is what some would call a long boring straight one into the prairies. The interesting thing I find with those types of roads is the relaxation of riding with the blue sky, farm fields, and no one around for miles but nature. Quite zen like.
But in the city, I'm all business as in Houston I find myself not trusting any driver. In fact, they drive so poorly here with consideration to others I'm getting a little paranoid over them as very few use signals to change multiple lanes; run through red lights (that have been red for several seconds) they don't look where they are going (cell phones) and will rush each other to the "front of the line" at a stop light... it's quite dangerous riding or driving really and you really need to pay attention at all times.
