On to the riding……Day 1 of riding…..is Juan ready….???



It looks like it……see the moisture on the ground….get used to it. It rained every day……some worse than others. But, don’t get me wrong…..I wouldn’t have changed a thing. Rain gave us zero dust (a big problem riding in MI) and allowed to ride within feet of each other. It also provided for some epic water crossings. On that note, not one us had waterproof boots……remember when I said we were unprepared….

Another disclaimer……. We didn’t seem to give a shit about scenery, history, or pictures…..all we wanted to do was ride. Many scenic spots and photo ops were skipped. This is a poorly documented ride report, but alas, on to the riding pics. Sometimes its better that way.

Ready to roll


We rolled mostly slab to get to Whitefish Pt……



After this, we finally hit the dirt…..






Some video from our first section of dirt......





Look out for the camera guy!!!!! And the tree!!!!!!!



FYI, bungie straps are a poor way to secure luggage…..WTF was Juan thinking….


First bit of carnage…….full compression with a 606 had this plate for lunch…

Much more carnage to come..............





Stopped in Grand Marais for lunch…..



Beer battered Whitefish….along with homemade tartar sauce…….AWSOME


And then this started…….


Stay tuned, lots more pics like this to come……LOL……

After a trip to hardware store for some bolts, we're back off……






This is about when we got our first taste of this……


Fuck it, how deep can it be…….(little did I know this would be my DR’s demise later in the trip)







From Grand Marais we ventured over into Gwinn for some ice cream and gas, and then headed up to Marquette





Hear the Banjos??????????

and located this fabulous joint.....



Ever clean your air filter in a motel room ice bin??? check


A couple of beers, some burgers and it was time for some ZZZZZZZZ's.
