I'm still "in"
...but it will be Wednesday-only for me.  


I have not yet decided whether I'll ride up Tuesday PM (most probable) or Wednesday (early early) AM.

Sitting in Salt Lake City Airport making my way home. What's the weather update? Hope I'm not the only one there if I do get a weather window to go.

Weather window?!  What's that?  only a 20% chance of rain tomorrow.  Some of my best riding days EVER have been in rain.  Buck up Bucktown!  Don't be a pussy!!  Bigok

So, we're HQ'd at the Best Western along the river on the north side of LaCrosse.  What time do you finish work? We can be back here, or somewhere to the east.  We plan to do Wildcat first, and LaFarge or close by for lunch. After that, nothing definite.

"Weather Window"....an opportunity to ride without getting pissed on all day......and I see one coming from Chicago.  I'm gonna head out around 9:30-10am if anyone wants to jump in.  Where's dinner tonight?

Do we want Mexican, Thai, Irish, or traditional American deep fried?

I'll be off work around 5. Let me know when you roll back into the hotel. Since I live in La Crosse, I'll just swing by when the crowd gets back to HQ and hang out. (I wish I had more time off. Running loops on Wildcat and various alphabet roads sounds way more fun than work.)

Spoke too soon, apparently.  New job / new responsibilities....and an Open House on Thursday means I'm "out".

An "absolutely perfect" day for riding the Driftless area....and I'm stuck inside.

Life is about choices...but, sometimes, life is about having to do what "must" be done instead of what one "wants" to do...

In any case...I'm riding this weekend, for certain!

Hope all who have made the National are having great fun...ride safe!

Thanks again to Dr.Mikey for all the hospitality!  Bigok  I also really enjoyed meeting bucktownbilly and dorklord.    Hope you guys had good riding on Wednesday.

I found some nice new roads in MN on the way home... Made it home in 3 hours, despite taking the scenic route.   I may have had the ST1300 throttle set to "warp."

Below you'll find some pics and an couple maps with my GPS Log.  Blue is my route on Monday on the way in.  Red is the loop that DrMikey and I rode on Tuesday (much fun!) and Green is my route home this morning.

Hope the next national has more participation!  I know I'll be spending a LOT more time in SW Wisconsin in the future!

With my circumnavigation of the plains states complete I spent last night just outside Rochester Minnesota and will be riding through LaCrosse today.  Anyone still around?

L to R there's Bill (BucktownBilly), Nick (naustin), Me (Dr. Mikey) and Chris (DorkLord)
