So, the plan was Andy (Wisconsin BMW Club Member and friend), OU812 ('nuff said) and myself would meet at my place at noon thirty, and head to the Wisconsin Motoguzzi Rally. Andy is salary, so needless to say he was late. I arrived at 12:30, and quick fixed my left turn signal, (wire fell off clip) and finished packing. Since time was a factor, we were going to take Hwy 18 (four lanes) west to Madison, and drop down Hwy 151 to just outside of Belmont, Wisconsin. The Rally was at Lake Joy Campground, a private owned Lake. Andy said he could go 50 then he needed gas, and I picked a nice shortcut to 18 and a gas station at about 32 miles out, close to my brother's house, and I know all the roads in between. We arrived there, and OU812 said I didn't save any time. To me, a nice road is not always a quick road, so we need to work on communications. We arrived at the rally around 4 pm, after around 150 miles, and set up camp in the heat and humidity. It was too hot to even take pictures for me, and I think OU812 did anyway, and posted them in Helmet Time. We mostly just hung and drank and talked about tomorrow's ride in the driftless region. That is when the fun really begins.
