    Cool Tour: Fishing & Friday Night Fish Frys

    West Bend is 20 miles from Lake Michigan and one of the best places in the world to go fishing. Port Washington, Sheboygan, Two Rivers & Manitowoc have great fleets of charter boats. Remember to make your reservations early, as they are always booked for mid-summer. You can charter a boat for half or whole days.

    Cool Tour: Two Wheeled Tuesday/ Milwaukee

    Every Tuesday April thru October, a few hundred motorcycles gather in the parking lot behind Culvers Drive-in at 124 Street, two blocks south of Capital Drive. Take Highway 45 Capital Drive west(Harley Plant exit). Bikes start arriving at 5 PM, leaving at sunset. REI Camping store is straight ahead on Capital Drive.

    It would be great to have a large BMW crowd the Tuesday of the National Rally.






    See You at Two Wheeled Tuesday!!!

    Cool Slimey Crud/Pine Bluff/Leland

    First Sunday of May & October
    Just West of Madison Wisconsin
    Slimey Crud Run

    One of Wisconsin big Sport Bike Events is the Slimey Crud Run. The Event starts about 10 miles west of Madison in Pine Bluff and ends 40 miles northwest in Leland, but you have to remember about the Pine Bluff/Leland route, is that you can't get there from here. Everyone takes a different road, and the Bikers all leave and arrive when they feel.

    Do your own Slimey Crud Run while at the National Rally. Pine Bluff (95 miles, 2 hours from West Bend) has some of the best twistys around.

    Tour: New Diggings/Shullsburg

    St. Augustine, New Diggings, Wisconsin
    Father Samuel Mazzuchelli. Erected in 1844, this weather-beaten Greco-Gothic church has withstood the battering of time. Now being restored by the Father Mazzuchelli Assembly of the Knights of Columbus of Lancaster, Wisconsin, it has created interest throughout the country.

    Tour: Soldiers Grove/Great Camping & Roads

    Initially named Pine Grove, the town was renamed Soldiers Grove in the 1830s during the Blackhawk Indian War when it was established as an encampment for soldiers. Soldiers Grove is still a very small town (Population 583) that got flooded out by the (now diked) Kickapoo River. The town relocated on to the hills next to town. The Campground is in the old downtown. The Madison Club has the Great River Road Run there last year. Everyone loved the town and the town loved the BMW crowd. Soldiers Grove reminds me of Paonia. The roads in that area are some of Wisconsin Finest. The G R3 Rally had 250 Rally Rats, but the campsite could hold many times that. Soldiers Grove charges a small fee for camping.

    Soldiers Grove would be my choice for a base camp to discover Wisconsin. Make sure that at some point you ride The Great River Road Hwy 35. Another optional ride would be Wild Cat Mountain or the Mindoro Cut routes. My recommended tour route would be take any of the roads out of town, then when you get to an interesting road, take it, you can not go wrong. Most motorcyclist from Wisconsin like to take the Alphabet roads, and keep in mind that triple letter roads are mostly better than single letter roads. Mapquest has Soldiers Grove to West Bend at 180 mile 3.5 hours.




    America's first Solar Village. A historic village in WisconsinÔÇÖs beautiful Hidden Valleys.

    Lots of valleys, hills, curvy roads, small rural farms and three great riversÔÇöthe mighty Mississippi, the Wisconsin, and the meandering Kickapoo all in this riding area.






























    Typical riding roads

    Tour: Cooler near the Lake



    If we have hot weather at the National Rally, just go 20 miles east and hang out or ride the Lake shore for cool temps.

    To get in to the mood for the National Rally in Wisconsin, you need to go to Wisconsin Sport Touring site and play the Wild Cat Mountain and Mindoro Cut Video. It is a must see!
