I was told 9 am by one of the riders. 1st stop Kutter HD in Monroe. Next stop Anamosa and the museum there. I'm sure a few stops in between. They should have a great ride today.

A strong wind here today out of the south and hope they don't have to deal with it. Out on the flats it could be a handfull.

Somebody knows - But not the riders. :) They are given a set of directions but road names are omitted. Part of the rally thing. They stop in Monroe, Wi so my guess is they cross on one of the Dubuque bridges.

Here is what they are working off of. Sorry for the blurred pic.

Not certain...but zooming in on the route map looks like it's at Dubuque....possibly taking the 151 from Madison.

Actually that route map must be very generic as Doug's current track is taking him well South of Madison whereas the map looks like they'd have gone straight across...

A number of readers have been contacting the American Iron Magazine offices asking about details on the route for the 2012 Motorcycle Cannonball and where are the best places to see the motorcycles and riders. Even we do not know the specific routes. But we do know a few of the planned stops that might be worth visiting if you are in the area. These are the best locations and dates for you to meet the riders and check out some of the action:
Wednesday Sept 5 – Friday, Sept 7. Newburgh, NY at the Motorcyclepedia Museum and the Hilton Garden Inn. Riders depart starting at 9 am on Friday.
Sunday, Sept 9. Later afternoon and evening at the Harley-Davidson museum in Milwaukee.
Monday, Sept 10. Hosted lunch at Kutter Harley-Davidson in Monroe, WI. Late afternoon and evening at National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa, IA.
Tuesday, Sept 11. Hosted lunch at Harley-Davidson of Mason City, IA.
Wednesday, Sept 12. Hosted dinner at Pioneer Auto Show in Murdo, SD.
Thursday, Sept 13. Hosted BBQ dinner at Glencoe Campgrounds, Sturgis SD.

Saturday, Sept 22. Hosted dinner at Michael’s Harley-Davidson in Rohnert Park, CA.
Sunday, Sept 23. Grand finish at Dudley Perkins Harley-Davidson in San Francisco.
Well if this list is correct they'll be a ways south of Madison and the 151. Dubuque still looks to be the logical crossing point.
Good luck to all the riders ,
Go Doug !

Yup....they must have just plugged in the end points without any regard to route when making this map then.

Yep - that's the point of a rally. The rider must navigate an unknown route using rudimentary directions. It's all about timing. And, in this case, the machine holding up which adds another challenge. Looks like they're making a bee-line for the next announced stop - Monroe. My guess is they'll take 11 west from Monroe into Dubuque. Then maybe an easy roll on 151. Nice road but 65 mph speed limit.

Hopefully all that was needed in Milton was a little gas, oil and grease from a BigMac.





...at any rate #88 appears to be back on the road and loong gone from there!
