    Fantastic view! I think this could be a really fun event.
    Please keep in mind that many of us will be at the Hiawatha Rally the first weekend of June.

    I want to go to this but June is already very busy. Maybe a little mid week diversion for some of us.

    I'm eager to hear when in June this will take place. I've only got one weekend free that month. Hopefully it will fall within my time constraints. I've been interested in riding some of the fire roads in that area for a few years now.

    I'd be interested if the timing works out.

    Also wanted to mention: please watch out for inattentive drivers on the scenic hiway. The scenery is nice, so they don't watch the road.

    This is a great idea! Count me in!


    I could make it both the weekend before and the weekend after the Hiawatha Rally.

    Thanks for the replies. Sounds like I have to get the date narrowed down asap. I'll hopefully know by the end of this week. I'll try to schedule it around the other local rallies.

    I'll be keeping an eye on this one. As long as it doesn't step on the BMWRA national rally in Chippewa Falls, June 30-July 3, and the Blind Lizard on Father's day. Like May, June is a tough month to find an open date.
