Packing up the next morning, I cannot help but notice the torn stitching on my new saddlebags. This will need attention soon.



A forty mile detour right in the heart of the northern Minnesota boonies, all good.



Any water spot with a secluded place to park is worth a stop in my book.


This is Iron Range country, fabulous northern sticks riding.



After studying the map, I knew this road may be good.



I ride north through Ely Minnesota, the doorway to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area, commonly known in these parts as BWCA, one of the wildest wilderness areas in the United States.



I’m close to the International Border with Canada now where Heidi and four of our good friends and neighbors will be.



All Right! let the party begin.

It got noting but raunchy after this shot so that’s the only photo I will show. We are so lucky to have such fun friends.

We have a pontoon for the next three days for exploring, swimming and fishing this huge lake on the International Border, Rainey Lake, nothing but fun.



The weather is ideal for the ride home.



A stop in at my favorite bugger joint, listed in Americas top 150 burger joints, the Anchor Bar and Grill, Superior Wisconsin.



The End:

I hope you enjoyed this little ride report. I think it proved that you don’t need a ton of free time to do a good adventure ride. And it proves that I’m not that different after all, because who wouldn’t like this type of a motorcycle ride. ??

As a rider whose adventures tend to be 3 days at a time I really dig RR's like this. Thanks for taking us along.

Awesome! I blasted through the report, kind of like you did miles--with nary a break.

Very nice , and I assume you meant burger joint, rather than bugger joint.

I saw Hipsters old girlfriend at the Full Throttle. It looks like she has definitely moved on. No wonder Hipster won’t ride to Sturgis with me anymore.

Awesome!

Cavebiker,

This was one great unique ride report. Your primitive style of camping takes a person with lots of baaaa, ah nerve! Sad to say, I don't think I could handle much of that and sleep would probably come pretty slow, if at all. Thanks for taking us on a true adventure with great photos as a bonus.

For sure, my type of camping is not for everyone. I'm not sure what its all about, I just dig it. Thanks Oldone

Yeah Tommy but the woman in the DR was a big time biker. And I know you maybe would have never left the island if she wasn't already married with a daughter. She was so nice and I could not believe how hard she worked on changing your tire.
That experience was worth thousands, can you believe it!

Thanks amigo and thanks all of you for the replies. Forsure, it also makes me look forward to doing the next ride more, there is no denying that, and I got no problem with that.
