    Starting to look like a beautiful solo ride.

    I may get in a few hops this weekend, for sure.
    At least to get the bikes on the road and top them off before our capricious weather turns.
    Will have to catch up with you, Bryan.

    A month from now...

    We'll be looking at snow and ice. I think.

    BTW - Ghostrider

    I saw Marcin today, he had an accident the other night, he's not sure what happened, but he lost control of a KTM he was riding, crashed and he woke up in a hospital 6 hours later.

    ATGATT saved him - his helmet, jacket and pants were toast - Doc has told him to stay off the bike for a while. KTM can be repaired.

    He'll be OK. I think he's off MOA - so messages posted here won't be seen by him.

    Beautiful day, beautiful ride.

    'Stopped for a bite at Rod's Packer Inn near Silver Lake for a burger and a couple of Cokes. Lakes just glisten these days with the leaves down - lots of bonfires scented the air.

    100 or so miles.

    Was a beautiful day to get out and about. My thoughts were to ride till the gas light came on...so I could fill-er up with fresh gas. Did that.....about 140 mi for the day. Just a few stops and meeting up with many many many bikes on the road. And most waved!! Could this be it??? Riding in November; how good is that!

    I don't think we passed each other, but 140 miles... good day, good miles.
    I rode down to US 11 then back zigzagging to Whitewater, before heading back home. Miles and smiles. Who cares if the Packers lost to a winless team. I enjoyed to susnshine and warmth.

    Fall riding on an old K bike...

    Is especially great. That heat which is a bother in the summer, is welcome in the Spring and Fall!!

    I just spoke to him. He said a raccoon ran out and under his wheel and he flew at @ 40mph over the bike and landed head first. At least that's what he was told. He does not remember. Must have been a big raccoon.

    He won't be able ride or drive for a few weeks.

    Only Marcin ... would be able to share a story like that

    Take Care Marcin

    189 miles on Saturday...

    A beautiful day - wound up donning and plugging in my electric jacket liner around 12:30 when the sun vanished somewhere East of Lake Geneva.


    I like the colors of the Wisconsin farmlands and forests this time of year.

    Watch out for Bambi however.

    I gather the rest of the crew has parked their bikes for the season?

    +1 on Bambi, my greatest fear. I did a "stroll" ride around Lake Geneva a few times this fall. Haven't parked yet, but it's not far away. Such a sad time regarding riding, but trip planning for 2010 will be on the agenda soon.
