    They are the same route, hero sections optional. LittleJon always has a scenic detour or two.

    Little John might have a detour or two if he were going to be doing a big bike route. I don't think John was going to be doing a big bike route, it's up to the big bike riders if they want a big bike route.
    I plan on taking my 1200GS Adventure on the entire thumper route, including John's "one track two track" off the ATV trail. I will not be doing any of the hero sections, and will be expecting to be running about 10 MPH slower than the little bikes (40 on gravel and 25 on the two track stuff).

    I would like to send out a HUGE THANK YOU ! to Eric and Adam at Latitude Graphics in (I believe) Cross Plains WI. they donated 500 of these really cool custom made arrows for the R4R and the big woods. they are on plastic so when we ues them on the hero sections the will be less likely to fall off in the wind and wet as well as wont get eaten by the bugs that really like some inks. if you know these guys please pass on the sediment. THANK YOU!!! lj

    Really, LJ? They give you those nice arrows and you wanna fling mud and such at 'em? :huh

    Those cool Latitude Graphics arrows saved us a TON of time at the Bucky. It's so nice to not have to go out and rehang arrows after every rain or wind. So I'm with ya on the THANKS!

    But I'll leave the sediment at the bottom of the bucket. :D

    P.S.: DON'T DELAY! GET SIGNED UP FOR THE R4R - DO IT NOW! REGISTRATION CLOSES AT NOON ON FRIDAY 5/27!

    Just got back from checking the routes yesterday-great day to ride. The wildlife count for the day was 1 porcupine, 2 wolves in the morning, 3 bear cubs, and another wolf in the afternoon that was not phased by us and just watched us from about 15-20ft away.

    It did take me a while to figure out where I was, The track didn't look familiar through dry goggles and sunny skies!!
