The GPS track can be donwloaded here.

Don't forget to take the pictures of your bike at the Rustic Road signs. Send in ten and get a Rustic Roads Motorcycle Patch.

Thanks for riding along!
Thanks--I enjoyed it--

Very nice report and pictures! I had the pleasure of playing at Whistling Straits and attending the vintage races at Elkhart Lake with my son in July. One of our best trips ever. Looking forward to going back and riding in Door county.

Thanks, great that you enjoyed the area! Hope you do get a chance to spend some time out on the peninsula. So much to see.

Door County Ride

Bryan
I friend and I just completed a modified Door County ride and had a great time. We left from Ontario and rode over to Ludungton Mi. and took the SS Badger across to Manitowoc. We then went north from there up the east side of the penninsula to the tip and then the ferry to Washington Is. The ride around the Island was great, much better than I expected and the back down the west side to Green Bay. From there it was back up the NW coast of Lake Michigan around the top and on to cross the bridge at Mackinaw. We then followed the west coast of Michiganas far south as Traverse City and the back home to Ontario.
We had a great ride primarily due to all the hard work you did in preparing the routes and the GPS tracks and higlighting the things to see. A tremendous thanks for all your hard work. All in all about a 1400 mile loop.
Thanks Bryan.

Thanks! Sounds like you had a great trip. I see that the Badger blew a ring on one of the steam pistons and ran aground in the harbor the other day. I'm glad the tracks proved useful for you. I try to set up it to make it easy for the next guy to enjoy. I heard from some others that enjoyed that run as well. As you know, shore riding on the Door peninsula is really nice.

Thanks Jax! I really enjoyed that Great Divide ride as it is so scenic. I hear that there is no longer gas down in Hachita close to the Mex border so plan accordingly. Have a great trip and I'll be looking forward to reading about it when you get back!

Thank you very much for posting this route. I rode 4 of your 5 parts then headed over to the Iron Co route and did 2 of the 3 tracks there before my tire was so worn I had to limp the bike home on it. I underestimated how much tread I had left but the trip was exactly what I needed to recharge.

I'm glad you got to ride some of these paths. Lots of interesting stuff along the way. Nice to hear that you enjoyed your ride. From what you say, it must have been worth it to burn off that tire.
