thanks for any oppinion.
Salut Doru! Bine ati venit a Statele Unite!
That's an open-ended question, if ever I saw one. It is like asking "who should I marry?"
The USA is a very large and diverse country. There are so many wonderful places to live. People here move from one place to another, perhaps more often than other countries.
Distances in the USA are truly vast, particularly in the western states.
It is impossible to make a suggestion, because we don't know what you are looking for. Urban? Rural? Forest? Desert? Mountains? ...
Considering your interest in motorcycle riding, I suggest that you look at the southern states, where year-round riding is common. The desert regions are dry and very very hot (45-50 C) in summer. The southeastern region is very humid in summer. The coastal regions of California have excellent weather for someone who likes riding, but the cost of living is high and it is quite crowded, with heavy traffic.
Another consideration might be finding a home near one of the many communities of Romanians who live here, so you can find friends who share your language and culture. There are Romanian Consulates in Los Angeles and New York, and many honorary consulates throughout the US. Try contacting the honorary consulate or some of the many Romanian churches in the areas that interest you.
