    We crossed paths with a couple groups of quads and SXS's and got nothing but smiles and waves. One even followed us for a bit and offered up some suggested routes. Maybe it's because our group was full of beautiful women but I wouldn't change the location based on a couple isolated incidents. A 10 hour drive is plenty far north for us.:D
    Cheeseheads are pretty ok in my book.

    I like the first week in August.

    And as the Guzzi overlaps.... People can go there then extend the week to come to Central...

    The second week works good for me that gives me almost a week for my check liver light to reset from the guzzi rally

    I love it being in Eagle River/Hi-Pines, lots to do in the surrounding area. The weather the first week of August is fantastic for this, I already am looking forward to next year. The campground workers said they loved us being there, and the people I talked to out riding were as friendly as could be.

    That was a big pucker......especially when we couldn't see the rest of our group and the truck lays on the airhorns......geez.

    Boulder Junction may be an option for the Rally. It would require some slight modifying of the tracks but nothing too involved plus it's closer to the Flambeau trail system. Just some food for thought. Either way I'll be there. It's easy to make time for great riding and some of the greatest folks I've had the pleasure to spend time with.:freaky

    Those modifications were completed and posted last fall.

    I think that the only issue with Boulder Junction would be the art fair where they block off most of town.

    They just block off the town the one Sunday, Eagle River is close enough to Boulder and has more to offer us. The whole area is a nice part of the state, would like to get up there more.

    I'd like to say thank you Bonebag & family, Papalobster & family, Drif10 & son and the rest of the crew that helped to put this fantastic rally on. Without all of you working as hard as you did it would not have nearly as much fun. The food and beer were great too!

    It was lots of fun getting to know you all in meat space versus the ether.

    Thanks to Oddball for sharing his camp site with me and leading on some great trails.

    I hope I didn't embarrass anybody but myself. I really try not to spill beer but when you get backed into unexpectedly it is hard not to spill some. 71 & 35.5 I hope none got on you.

    Mystical Fire is the stuff that I dropped in the fire for that nice green glow. I'll bring more next time, they don't take up too much room on the bike.

    I had a great time and cannot wait until I can make another one.

    p.s. the photos have been downloaded from my camera but I have not had a chance to look at them yet. I'm targeting this week to post some up.

    That town was clogged tight Tuesday when we went through as well. Not blocked off, but you couldn't ride through without dodging about 10 trucksters. Looked like it was just a farmers market/crap sale.

    In contrast to the above, Vilas Co Tourism contacted me about putting some dual sport and adventure motorcycling info in next year's travel literature.

    perhaps HiPines and the other businesses we frequent would like to know that we'd likely head across the border if this goes through? :D

    I for one would prefer a more remote location... but I don't run the show and the logistics of a spot in the U.P. would be much different. Someplace in the Parkfalls,Glidden, Clam Lake area would also work.
