Does anyone have a GPS track for this route, or did I miss it in the thread?

We're partially done with it, but we know that we are going to have to fine tune it. I hope to ride it early this year.

I've only been riding up in that area a couple times, but loved it! We're always anxious to explore 'new' B-roads.

Mr. Salty screwed with this post 01-08-2014 at 08:28 AM Reason: If the English language made any sense, lackadaisical would have something to do with a shortage of flowers.

Very nice, I have been thoroughly enjoying my TE250, it's been a very trouble free bike.

well they arent bikes, but these are what my winter adventures have been on lately.

my dad has a vacation house(until he retires and moves there) up east of hayward wi. so im trying to make use of it this winter. my family and i were up there over christmas for 5 days, and my dad, some friends and i are going back up in a little over a week, and then we have a couples trip in february.

i love me some snowmobiling!

the 2 currently in my stable. 1999 Arctic Cat Thundercat 1000 triple, and an 03 Arctic Cat ZR 900 twin.




i havent had the Thundercat out for any good pictures yet, but the ZR sure is photogenic in that ditch pickle lime green!












both kids even got there snowmobile permits this year so we had to borrow a couple of dads sleds!






and then there is me, my fiance, my daughter, her son, my dad, stepmom, 2 of my sisters and one of the boyfriends. (this fuel stop cost us $250 at 5 bucks a gallon. WTF?! and then the zr sprung a leak and puked out a whole tank in 16 miles... ugh...








if we ever get any snow NOT followed by ridiculous wind around here, i'll be out exploring more regularly on them.

I've never tried snowmobiling. Gotta try that some day. Looks like a lot of fun.

No bikes today, but I had to go to Mesa, AZ to help a friend. Just thought I'd mention it.

There is a DRZ in a motorcycle shop I forgot the name of in Minneapolis that would be a great bike for you.

Already has a back up kick starter installed. Low miles. Decent price and I have looked at it already and I gave it the thumbs up for a friend.

It's blue and street legal.
