Thanks! I thought I could see a V-4 engine in it but I couldn't place the frame (or a few other parts).

I had to work hard to try and outrun them.
Looks like a scene from Oceans Eleven or Reservoir Dogs...




Saw some cool, older dual sports there.





More cool bags.





Our eclectic posse.





Blue Spoon in Prairie du Sac. Good eats.



Long awaited ferry ride.

I maybe hit 65 at times with the wife on the back. Hard in and out maybe, but bikes just don't corner that fast .

Wish could have been there today.

Either way, it was a really great day. And, it looks like yet another spectacular fall weekend coming up.

I just found out this was my friend Heather. I thought it may be her cuz she rides a Ducati and often travels with her dad, but I didn't think she was going this year. Thankfully her leg isn't broken, but she just posted a pic of it on FB and it is not pretty...eek.

Thank goodness. Give her snowjob's best. I felt guilty leaving after witnessing the crash, but the Police told me I should go since they had it under control. Hopefully she heals fast, it sure was a pretty bike and $$$ helmet.

Look for a red Helix with a bunch of stickers on it..

I'm planning to be at Leland. I'm also encouraging my son to ride the Adventure Spree out to Leland from UW. He likes the idea of riding the ferry. I should coax him with some Spree-suitable roads to consider to-from Madison.
