Had a good time riding today. Nothing too technical, some nice two track, alot of WFO cornfeild riding. Some optional hero sections would be a nice addition, and Dan said that could be a possibility .

There were a couple of places where if you were going fast enough in those rolling fields, you'd catch some air. That's fun. I think Dan cut out the really knarly section this ride. If you liked this, you'll love the Hill Point ride.

I'm very happy that my son asked "When's the next one".

It was fun, and a little chilly at first but turned into a nice day. Thanks Dan for all the effort you put into growing this sport and entertaining us the first loop. I agree with Zed a couple hero sections or a few miles of single track would really make a bunch of us happy but I realize its a lot of extra work. I will try to make a ride or two next season.

Thumb Nov. 3 SW WI Guided Trail RIde

Hey Guys - just joined the forum thanks to a recommendation from Jake (KTM 450) in group one of the SW WI guided ride on Nov. 3 2012. Had a great time on this ride and hope to see everybody out there again the next chance we get. Wanted to thank the fellow KTM guy with the glasses (didn't get your name) for the help on the first big technical uphill on loop two when I launched into the trees. (Group one got a hero tour with Dan for that one). - Duane

That was me that helped you get your bike turned around.
And I'm not sure you launched into the trees...



Oh yep, looks like you did
I do have a video of you making it up, but am not sure how to post it on here.

Here are a couple of the other guys going up

A dual sport bike is not required

This is the 5th year of doing these rides. What a great way to expose riders to the joys of off-road riding in a non-competitive way with a variety of machines running the same trails.

What a way to get the wife and kids into riding.

Must know how to ride (12 and older) or be a passenger. Trail is a 5 or 6 on a scale to 10 with 10 being the hardest. I rate the Cheese Trail by Monroe a 1 or 2 on the same scale.

For the cycles, is this limited to smaller dirt bikes and dual sports, or could it be done on something like, oh I don't know...a BMW F800GS?

Sat. Ride

I'm going to give it a go with a DR650. I did the ride in Middleton last year and there was someone on a KLR who made it through unscathed. I don't know if the Hillpoint ride is more or less difficult but some of the Middleton ride is also used in the Bucky.
