    Word on the street is, they MIGHT close the trails in Jackson County on the 23, because of high fire danger.

    May want to call ahead and check if you have a ride planed for that area.

    Well Tennis is a dangerous sport you know... the family friend who was to attend, separated his calf muscle in his leg today and won't be able to make it... He should stick to safer activities, like riding motorcycle!

    Poor guy is going to be out for 5 weeks. Needs to take it easy, no riding.

    Think I'm going to ride down to the Lake Express Ferry dock this afternoon to watch the old bikes get off the ferry as part of the Cannonball Run.

    Might be interesting to see some of these bikes rolling out in one spot.

    Ferry is suppoosed to arrive at 1815 hours today.

    One participant has a ride report going.

    Looks like they are stopping at the HD museum.

    The ferry ran a little late. Not much good light left when the bikes paraded off. What a great collection of bikes though. It would have been fun to spend more time examining them up close.

    There is another good DS ride coming up the end of September near Quad Cities, IL. This ride will have plenty of hero options for the more dirt oriented DS guy. All proceeds go to the U of I Children's Hospital. Here's a link.

    Just want to add a thumbs up for the Geneseo IL dual sport and enduro; Layton and the boys do a great job. I rode the enduro last year, which had some interesting challenges.
    The dual sport ride is September 22 and the enduro is the next day on the 23rd.:clap:clap:clap

    New path for big adventure bikes to cross northern WI and the UP from Mack Bridge to Duluth where it connects with the TMAT. It connects to the GLDS Expedition Michigan tracks in the LP.

    In the past I got requests from people for a big bike route like this. I used to just do a custom for whoever asked. This standard route should serve people well.

    Trans-Wisconsin/Upper Peninsula Adventure Trail (TWUPAT)

    If someone was considering picking up a GPS to ride some of these tracks Cabelas has an Oregon 450 on black Friday sale on-line for $199.99 right now. I have one. Good unit for what we do. This is a savings of $150-200.
