    Thanks, I'll scratch that off the list until late summer, maybe fall.

    It still will have closed sections then. Check out my GPS tracks for a path you can ride on it when it is open.

    Heading out of town for awhile so riding time is cut until the second weekend of June. Anyone headed to Road America June 10-11? WIXC has an event I believe on Sunday the 11th along with being a 2 wheeled racing weekend on the big track.

    That WIXC ride is on my todo list. Along with Sturgeon Bay and Rapid River. After that July will be prep for the TAT. Going to give it a go in August from CO to OR.

    Is there a list online someplace of Wisconsin motorcycle events?
    Half the stuff you're talking about I never hear about till after.


    I'm thinking hard about road America, but once again, "stuff" going on with family and such can scratch that pretty easy.
    Like my day tripping, I do all my planning last minute.

    Cannonshot has a thread with a list of events. Some of them you have to do some digging to find current dates, like WIXC. Here's the website, date sheet is a PDF http://www.rpaoffroad.com/home.php

    Below are the AMA events for our District, list is on page 37. I mostly do the RPA events listed above. I'm not serious about the series, just pick and choose the tracks that I like.

    FYI - The WIXC Sugar Camp (Rhinelander) event was cancelled for this Sunday. To much rain.

    Anybody heading to the Great River Gravel Ride this weekend?

    I'm planning on being on the road by 9am on Friday with a fully loaded DR650. This should be an adventure just getting there:muutt

    I got out on Saturday up in Vilas and Forest County. Had planned on getting some videos of the forest roads and @Cannonshot tracks around there. Unfortunately, 15 minutes into the ride I had a moment and broke my GoPro mount. That moment is at the end of this video. However, the ride continued and it was a great day riding up there.

    With all the rain I was expecting a lot of mud and slop, not so, did not have to back track due to mud or standing water.

    The video is on Kaine Lake in Vilas County.

    Anybody riding this weekend? While I have a "to do" list a mile long, it's not very often that I get a weekend off. I could do dirt or street.

    Is there anybody in the Delafield area that can take a look at a vehicle for me? PM if you're able to help. I'll explain more later....

    My brother Peter and I ticked the 'Bear Caves' off the list today. It is a boulder garden deposited in a ridge by the collision of the Green Bay and Chippewa Lobes of the Wisconsin Glacier. It is just off Hwy. 55 near Nine Mile. It is kind of cool, ... if you are into glacial deposits. To the northeast are Diamond Roof Road and Ada Lake Road, both very enjoyable forest service roads.

    @rob30 here's a spot to post day rides and meat folks, hopefully.



    Hey folks, thought i'd bump this back up.
    life has changed for me and I find myself free to get out and ride again.
    Heading up north this weekend, maybe Rhinelander area, maybe the Bayfield area.

    anyone else looking at riding this weekend?

    I'll be in the Crandon/Wabeno area the following weekend. The Big Woods 200 will be going on, but was full before I saw the flyer. Just be doing our own routes.
