Wish you could ride along.

You can download the route off of the CannonTracks that are in GPS Central and knock it out anytime you want though . . .

May make a couple of WI Rustic Roads tomorrow

I have to make sure the 19 yr old makes the noon ferry at Manitowoc tomorrow (ya what a way to spend the 4th) but the good news is I have to ride the Wee back home. I figure to take Hwy10 back to the St Paul area from Manitowoc and will "have" to detour to make some of the rustic roads.

Ordered a Corbin seat this weekend and have to start planning a long distance ride to break it in. How'd your ride go? You had a beautiful day. Man, I wish I coulda gone. Had commitments at church, followed by the July 4th parade (BIG deal here in Hooterville, er, East Troy).

Hwy 10 from Manitowoc to Osseo WI

The first longer cruise on the Wee went well. Hauled it to Manitowoc in the back of the pickup. The 19 yr old took the truck on the ferry to Michigan, I got to ride back to the Twin Cities. I asked 3 other riders (one a BMW GS, the other two Harleys from Chicago) helped us roll the bike off the truck. Extra hands made it easier. ANyway 10 is a great road. Didnt realize it was 4 lane for half of it. Hit 4 rustic roads on the way. Watched the local police nab a Mustang right in front of me in Stevens Point. Once west of Stevens Point turned into a nicer ride. Went past the trails in Clark County , man there were a lot of ATVs using them. Short list for the Wee - butt pad - may refit the one off the Goldwing. And the JC Whitney Givi knockoff trunk does well at 85 indicated.

Sounds like you are really enjoying the Strom. Four Rustic Roads down? I'll be you knock off six more in no time. I use a sheepskin on my Strom and it works well.

The ride was great. Let me know if you want to get together to knock off one of those Rustic Roads tracks. There are a few others that might want to join in as well.

I think that when I replace my DRZ (soon I think) I'll have to try a Corbin on whatever I pick up next.

I'll take that as an invite! Thanks! Went on a 100 miler early this morning to beat the heat. That seat can't get here fast enough.

Another Event

PM from tpunzy giving a heads up to this event.

http://www.wmgr.org/index.htm

The 23rd Annual Wisconsin Moto Guzzi Riders Rally will be held on August 3-5, 2007 at Lake Joy Campground. Registration is $30 before July 1, 2007 and $35 at the gate. We will feature Wisconsin's best grilled brats & burgers Friday evening, a pig roast Saturday evening and deluxe continental breakfasts on Saturday and Sunday mornings. As always, Wisconsin's finest refreshments, including soft drinks, will flow from the artesian taps. Lake Joy is located in the heart of Wisconsin's "driftless" region - the area not flattened by the glacier. It is spectacularly scenic riding territory. The campground has clean modern restrooms and showers, and a 60 acre private lake (no fishing license required) with two beaches.

Do I understand correctly that $35 gets you two evening meals, two breakfasts, camping, and free beer?

I was thinking of doing the road ride option at the GRGR, but it looks like I would be the only one. I might have to check this out and run their 100 mile poker run route instead. I know a couple of others we know are making the trip as well. I don't know how they offer all they do for only $35.

Hey Bryan, The info you have listed for this ride is wrong. Its Jackson County Iowa near Maquoketa. I thought it was Jackson Cty Wisconsin at first too.
