    I don't like gravel or dirt... the LT isn't really an offroad bike so you can expect paved roads all the way.

    Any possibility of posting the spcific route(s)? I arrive early but think I will be very busy during the really. Would like to ride the Rustic Roads on my own before the Rally.

    Thanks in advance!

    Be happy to do it when I have actually figured the route out.

    I haven't been on some of these roads for a year or two so I want to ride them to make sure they are in good shape (read safe) and to figure out an eficient route to get 10 as quickly as possible. Since my wife just bought a new to her '93 K1100LT and the weekend is supposed to be nice, I may run the roads on Sunday and post a tentative route by early next week.

    I have a couple more interested from the chromeheads forum. This could be a large group.

    Maybe all the more reason to post the route, so everybody doesn't have to leave together ...

    Not a problem. We'll figure something out.

    I've mapped a route that is roughly 190 miles round trip (much of that is the ride back as I figure you all would prefer to avoid the interstate). There is some road construction in some of those areas that may affect our ability to get to some of the roads. I'll ride the route this weekend and if it is workable I'll put up the route Sunday night.

    I'm coming in from the South (Joliet, IL) only a couple of hours from Wisconsin. Seems to be alot of Rustic Roads in that area. Definitely more than 10. Maybe I'll catch a few coming into the Rally as well.

    That's the area (SE Wisc) that I intend to hit. They're all bunched up together and we can hit them quickly.

    Since I'm going to pre-ride the route this Sunday (and I'll have my camera with me) anyone who wants to join me and get your 10 out of the way is more than welcome. I'm going to start at the rally site sometime Sunday morning and end the ride in Racine County 1 1/2 to 2 hours later. PM me for a time to meet at the rally site if you want to come along.

    We're In!

    Count us in for 2 bikes, too. Unfortunatly, we'll be late arrivals. Our daughter is returing home from London on the 10th and we want to see her home safely before we head out. We're in the Toronto area, so have abit of a ride ahead of us. Maybe if the group is going to do the run earlier, we could get your route and so it on our own? Or as a group of 'self-guided' riders?

    Here is the deal. I like to ride and I get bored easily. I figure that once I make the rounds of the vendors on Thursday, since I don't drink, there isn't much left for me to do but ride. Since there seems to be a group of you who want the immediate gratification of the patch on Friday, I'm willing to take a group out Friday morning. If there are enough of you that want to go on Saturday I'll lead another Saturday morning. The saturday group will have the advantage of stopping at Fred's in Burlington (if you'd like) for an extraordinary hamburger and then a waddle over to Adrian's for some really, really, good custard.

    In any event I'll post a detailed route for those of you who would prefer to do it on your own.

    JCabranes, Thanks for being so accomodating. I'm actually in PA, but if I was out there, I'd be riding the route with you this Sunday. Thanks Again.
