    Hey Guys,

    I just wanted to say thanks for posting this. I just got a new to me 07 KLR650 and those roads look like a blast if it can warm up a few degrees.

    WOW! Excellent work putting this all together.:clap I'm coming through WI sometime this summer and just may try to do a few of these. Has anyone strung a bunch together that are all... or mostly dirt roads?

    Great work on the waypoint file!

    As far as identifying gravel routes, I've attached the latest version of the file I made which lists file names with a G if the are gravel or PG if the have both paved and gravel sections.

    Thanks for that! Now I just need to figure out a route that is semi-efficient that routes to all of the roads. I put it in my mapping software and if you do them in number order, its something like 17,000 miles. I did a rough grouping and got it down to like 3500, but that still seems like a lot. Anyone know how to optimize the stops with a mapping software? (I've got mapsource or whatever it is that comes with a garmin gps)

    Those routes Look go as well... Not too familiar in dealing with routes through... can you do a search for the nearest route in the GPS?

    Can anyone school me in getting these on to my tomtom rider 2? Do I have to change the files to .itn so the tomtom can read 'em or, I don't know, new to gps....Specifically looking for the one that is near lake geneva and burlington, route 3...

    thanks

    I nailed the 5 nearest RR's to our home today. I'd ridden past their origins many times but hadn't actually ridden them. I might have 10 under my belt, but they were all further away and were taken only because I was in the neighborhood. Now I'll have to go do more of them on my smaller machines.

    A NICE day to be out in Sconny today boy howdy!

    Thanks Kevin for the WI RR gpx file of which I downloaded and used as a master for building my Route.

    Please forgive my computer ineptness, but when I right click on a gpx attached track in advrider, I can't find how to download that file. I use either IE or Mozilla. Neither gives an option to save the file as a gpx file. I can open the file as a text file. However I get an error when trying to import the text file.

    The site is still having trouble with downloads. PM me an e-mail address and I will send you the tracks that you want.
