Anyone from NE Iowa or SW Wisconsin wanting to ride this weekend?

I'm headed north from Eastern Iowa early Friday morning and returning Sunday evening. The person I was planning on riding with had a work conflict and had to cancel. No particular destination, but leaning towards heading to the North Shore area.

I could ride a DR650 if we wanted to explore gravels/forest service roads, or a Triumph Tiger for something with more paved backroads in the route.

Anyone with an extra vacation day they need to burn up? The weather looks really good.

I'm from the manchester area. I've rode the trans Wisconsin adventure trail and would also recommend it.

I'm having a hard time finding a detailed non-GPS map of the trans Wisconsin adventure trail, although I understand that it passes fairly near my house in Galena, IL. I seem to recall that it passes through or near Hazel Green, WI, before heading NW towards Prairie du Chien. Can anyone point me to a map? Thanks.

40F and rain. I bet it was a cold start to your trip.

Thanks! If I decide to forgo my planned IBA ride next month, I'll probably try to ride the Sourthern portion.
