Heather and I had Monday off, so we decided to go out for a ride. Since we both like sleep, we didn't actually hit the road until about 1pm, but the sun was still high in the sky, both the bike's gas tanks were full, so we headed out of the city.
We live in Milwaukee county, and if you look at this map -
You see there are no rustic roads here. There are, however, 2 in Waukesha County, so we headed that way first.
The south end of R-10. I made sure before we left that all the roads with her would be paved. Not all the Rustic Roads are. Heather is still a little new, so we reviewed a bit about cornering, speeds and such.
I like water.http://xspain.smugmug.com/photos/139457360-M.jpg
The north end of r-86, the other Rustic in Waukesha County. Going through my pictures, looks like I took a lot of them sideways
Not entirely sure why.
From there, we headed south and east on two lane roads to Racine County, where there are 6 more roads. We only planned to ride 4 of them.
The northern start of R-2. This road was so long, we actually left it to ride another one, and then came back.
Heather was starting to really have fun. I know it is hard to tell.
Here we take a break from R-2, to cruise along R-25.
A little more proof that Heather was enjoying herself.
Along r-25. I didn't stop to take as many pictures as I wanted, the ride was too much fun. Something to work on.
The end of R-2. Nice lake, we stopped to drink some water. Here is where we technically started to head for home, but there were 2 more roads on the way back.
Southern start of R-30
Looking north on R-30
And, the last one for the day, R-5.
R-30 and R-5 run along the side of Hwy 36, which is also Loomis Rd. (R-5 is actually Old Loomis Rd). Hwy 36 is a major road, and this area had a lot more traffic, kind of a downer at the end of the day for me, but Heather didn't mind.
we had to get gas for both bikes after this, since we were over 100 miles, and then headed home.
