I was stationed at Ft. Carson, CO for a couple years and i drove through Kansas and right by Ft. Riley about 100 times and i will tell you this, Kansas SUCKS! There is nothing there to see or look at, except a big ass billboard sign that says worlds largest Prairie Dog. Ft. Riley is very dull and looks very boring, from the passing by point of view. Just my thoughts and experiences.

Mostly flat. There are several roads that aren't bad to run. A couple run south of Ft Riley. Some to the northeast. Hwy 4 from Alta Vista to Topeka is a pretty fun run.

At least Ft Riley and Manhattan are in one of the hilliest areas in the state.

Sorry to say it won't be anything like Alabama. Well, maybe southern Alabama near Montgomery!

well contrary to what killa kawi says about ks sucking your very lucky to be moving to ft. riley, this part of the state is nice and there are several roads that are fun. also manhattan ks is just a few miles to the east of ft. riley. there is a cool little bike shop called motorcycle supply here in manhattan aswell. please pm me when you get here, i'll show you what we have to offer. as far as other riders its about 50/50 (50% squids that rock the city streets and the other 50% of us actually get out on the back roads and ride.)
