Place map in large ziplock - tape ziplock to tank. If I'm any indication Wee-Strom owners are almost as cheap as KLR owners. And as a bonus the chicks really dig it!!

FYI, as of last weekend, RR 106 does not have any signs. It appears they just paved it and had not replaced the signs. I sent an email to the email from the RR website.

Great idea for the sticker. We will see if I can get them all in a couple of weekends.

O come-on, cheaper than a KLR owner? Is that possible?

There have been other reports of signs missing. If you get to a route and the sign is missing, here's what you do. First, make sure you really are where you think you are and at a prticular Rustic Route. Double check because the maps in the state brochure can be a little bit vague. Check the other end of the route for a sign. If you've double checked both ends of the route and there aren't any signs, then take a picture of your bike in front of the street sign. I'll want to see the sign for both the street and the cross street.

It is a pain in the you-know-what to look up the intersections to verify routes. If you send me a package with a whole bunch of street signs instead of rustic route signs, I'll begin to doubt your navigational prowess. If other folks have been sending in pictures of the rustic route signs and you don't have them, I might suggest you try a little harder.

The snow is melting and the temperature is climbing. The ground is still too soft to do any yard work so go ride!

"Frequently crosses a trout stream" sounds kinda fun, right? Now that I think about it, #74 sort of sucked too because it was 34 miles of gravel. The bike was limestone gray in the end.

On the flip side, #71 around Stone Lake was the best. Northern Wisconsin at its finest.
R51 is probably my favorite. I bet I've ridden it a hundred times. Does that get me a sticker?

I can be such a dope. R51 is only 70 miles from home and I never seen to get there. It looks like a great road... should be. It's in a great part of Wisconsin.

The stickers are back from the printer and the first one is in the mail on its way to George Barker. Niniety nine stickers left folks!

By the way, be careful riding R 51. I hear that a rut has been carved into that one.

May 10 - hitting RRs in St Croix, Polk & Burnett counties

After forgetting to bring my camera yesterday for the Slimey Crud Run it's time for me to get serious about collecting some Rustic Road pictures. I'm planning to get out on Saturday and pick some low-hanging fruit, the bakers dozen of RRs in the MN/WI border counties north of I-94.

Anyone interested in riding along?
