Wisconsin did not disappoint

After enjoying this site and everyoneís Ride Reports for a few years now, itís time to submit a (short) one of my own. Hope you enjoy.

Itís been a hectic 2012 so far. In May we bought a new house and moved Memorial Day weekend. I spent June and July sprucing up the old house (built in 1926) and it went on the market in early August. I must have done good work because it sold in less than 24 hours for more than the list price. We were feeling good, but didnít feel complete relief until the closing 4 weeks later.

We have plans to begin construction on an addition to the new house soon. We want to get it framed & weather tight before winter, which could start anytime here in Minnesota. So there will be many more hectic weeks in the next couple months. And lots of interior finish work through the winter.

I really felt the need to get away.

About a week ago, everything started align nicely to allow me to escape for a few days. The weather forecast was favorable, my work could do without me for a couple days, and I had no other commitments that could not be put off.

So it was time to strap the luggage on my trusty Bonneville and hit the road for a few days. Didnít plan to get far away, I was looking for quality over quantity.

From my home the choices for a short trip are Minnesota or Wisconsin or some of both. I chose Wisconsin. I wanted great scenery and lonely roads and some helmet time to ease my mind.

Wisconsin did not disappoint.
