Cool, D/S or "ADV" your profile pic "says" D/S but... ?
, That would be awesome... If she starts to shake in the woods it's because she remembers what's coming up... Mowee, this was for you btw!
I have a GSA. I would more than likely ride to wherever and ride with people or not. I would be sure to eat where everyone is eating. Riding to cool places to eat is pretty much the point for me.
If the right DS came along, I might have something, but I am not counting on it.
I’m down for a D/S ride. I’m totally green so if the group is fast and technical, Id probably be more of a liability than anything. Regardless, I’d dig the opportunity to connect with some riders in northern WI.
On a side, we have a small cabin in St. Germain and could host a night or two as long as you bring toilet paper, antibac and your own corona hazmat suit.
OK, great response all. As of now i believe there's enough interest/riders to fill the two rides planned. If anyone else is interested please shout out and i'll put you down as reserves or plan another ride if there's enough interest.
Cheers and watch this space! MK.
When date is set I can commit.
I would be in for both rides, sounds like a blast! Stretch the legs on the 990 or the 500 exc!
The ADV for me sounds good. Depending on the weekend my brother may attend also.
I’m a maybe when a date is set. ADV ride, but I’m hoping to add a smaller dual sport to my garage this year.
OK everyone, break out your calendars! After purusing Cannon's list on the WI. Rides i've come up with the following possible weekends. I've avoided weekends like Memorial day, Fathers Day & the 4th... (God save the Queen!) along with events like the RfR, Theilman, Valley Springs etc. I'm not sure if CADVR is on or not soand I sort of ignored other bike specific rallies but tried to match them up to possible D/S weekends (your Guzzi will not work where we'll be going).
Possible weekends for D/S are: (A) *12-14/06, (C) 26-28/06, (E) 31/07-2/08 & (G) 28-30/08.
Possible weekends for ADV are: (B) *29-31/05, (D) 10-12/07 & (F) 14-16/08.
So, 9 hardy souls expressed interest in the D/S weekend, please respond with your first and second choice (EX: A/E). We'll go with the majority vote and if that happens to be a weekend you didn't pick... sorry.
However, a whopping 15 of you have expressed interest in the ADV weekend which is and a little bit so, please respond with your first and second choice (EX: D/F) and again, we'll go with the majority vote and if that happens to be a weekend you didn't pick... well, don't be too sorry because there may be enough of you to do 2 weekends (the 2nd one will not be to the U.P. though!)
I'd like to kick both weeknds off on the Friday with a mid-day to early p.m. start just to make things less hectic. The D/S weekend will be in the NW of the State and a few parts of it will NOT be novice riding... However... your call The gathering point will be my home (plenty of safe off road parking). I'm not quite sure where the ADV ride will start, i'm thinking somewhere around Tomahawk or Rhinelander. I'll be riding from Rice Lake though so you can meet me anywhere between there and Eagle River.
So, more details when we have the dates set. Questions/comments?
*(edit-3/27-while i think the single track i want to use will be open the official date is June 1st... so, not taking the chance and swapped these dates around!).
Here are my votes for the d/s and adv rides.
Dual sport- C/A
, (E) 31/07-2/08 & (G) 28-30/08
Are my choices.
Chute Pond is 6/26-30.
I'm flexible, so Ill let others decide.
I can make any of the ADV dates work.
E,G and F,D would be my preferred dates. Thank You for all of the planning!
I’m thinking I’ll sit the D/S ride out until I get some more experience. That said, can anyone provide trail recommendations in Onieda / Vilas County that would be good to build experience?
I can try for either D or F. B is the same weekend as the Hugellandschaft ride.
Try Cannon's homepage, he has quite a bit of stuff from that area.
Umm, you know here in the US we list the month first and then the date. For instance, my birthday was 07/06/1964 which makes me 55 years old and to damn old to learn your weirdo metric system and backwards dates. Fricken' Limey's, grumble grumble...
Actually this sounds like fun, and I will keep an eye on the thread to see if I will be able to attend. I won't know when is a better time for me so I will abstain from voting.
"said the Country that's had a "metric" monetary system since the year dot" As for the date, how do you count? 1, 2, 3, 4... or going by the US system 3,4,1,2,5...
To quote a well known saying "We are two Countries Separated By A Common Language" although in the 16 years i've been here i've come to realiz(s)e that goes for many other things too... For instance, the first time i ever went into Menards and asked where they kept their 4x2s i was meet with blank stares until i explained what i wanted and was promptly told that i meant 2x4s... i responded, ok, i'll take some of them and turn them on their side .
Funnily enough if you actually look up that quote on Google you'll see the following: "There is a famous quote attributed to George Bernard Shaw, Winston Churchill or Oscar Wilde depending upon the source you use that says: England and America are two countries separated by a common language". See, we can never agree on anything and I rest my case!
Stay well and Happy!
