    Good for you 9realms for getting out there in the white fluffy stuff, that looks to be a fun toy! With all this snow I was motivated to get my old snowshoes down from the attic and have been tracking through the woods and swamps on those.

    Plenty of stickers left - tell your friends!

    This looks fun, and it seems reaching 100 is more difficult than first imagined.

    It's a fabulous way to spend weekends. Riding and camping around the state - get to see some great scenery.

    It's a great way to ride some fantastic WI roads. I have hit the century mark but need to collect a few more up in the NE corner of the state. We're thinking about collecting them all over again here this summer as it's a great way to spend a 3 day weekend!

    A good early start to the season! I have gotten a few rides in, but no RRs yet.

    Hit 2 more out joy riding, also went thru the Mindoro cut. I think 31 is my least favorite Rustic road.

    26 one of my fav's!

    I like the windmill at the top and that dead-end turn off that goes past the ski-lift thingy.

    Hi All. I think I'm going to "collect" some more RRs this year.

    Maybe one day on suitable weekends when I'm not with my daughter. I hope to meet some of you.

    My Rustic Road riding has been spread over five or six years now, so I will admit the roads are beginning to run together. But I remember that this was a nice morning ride on a gravel road. It had rained the night before, but it was a beautiful morning. This is on Rustic Road 76 and I rode it in May 2017. RR 76 Bridge.JPG

    You rode quite a few miles to collect these four in one day. It was a nice day to ride. I was in a cage on my way back from Sioux Lookout, Ontario after a week of fishing. Enjoy the rest of your ride and happy Rustic Road collecting.

    Nice Triumph, Scott.
    Did this replace the deceased Tenere?
    How you liking it then?

    Nice Scott. Get those last 3 you need and you'll be the first with a full set of 120.

    Yep... and this is my first long ride with it. Do it like it?... very much so as long as you don’t expect it to BE the Tenere. Let it be what it is and it’s great.
