    I'm heading up to Door County...

    In my cage with my wife, so count me out this time! The good news is that my K Bike has a brand new mirror and I fixed the stuck relay problem, so I'm good to go!

    Btw -

    Door County is a very worthy one day or two weekend ride for the group. From my place you can reach the very tip by the Ferry in about 5 hours. Very scenic ride once you are past Milwaukee.

    Anyone interested on September 27th or 28th? Or a two day ride staying over night... there is a great ferry ride to Washington Island, where it's still 1970, but with good coffee.





    The guy in the Pirate outfit with the Harley is my buddy, is wears this getup on his something Glide, but has a Aerostitch hi-vis riding outfit when he rides his K1100LT. It's a peer pressure thing I guess.

    And the fishing "ain't bad, neither".



    I will have to wait to see the status on the RT before I can say "yea" or "nay" to the trip.

    Beemer01:

    Do you have a scenic route planned out for the Door County trip?

    In the past I've

    Taken 43 up to Manitowoc, then 42 along the Coast all the way up to the tip of the 'thumb' to Washington Island's ferry.

    Return via 57 until it hits Sturgeon Bay.

    Of course local riders may have better routes to share?

    I can make - my concern is the start time - I'll see what I can arrange - I assume 8 am start ?

    Thumbs up Saturday Door County Ride

    OK, the plan is to meet at the Full Moon on Route 41 in Lake Bluff, kickstands up at 12:00 Noon. We're going to ride up into Door County, grab coffee and pie in one of the impossibly cute restaurants and ride back - home by 8:00 or so.

    This schedule will let a few of us do some morning errands and in Curt's case let him get his beauty sleep.

    Marcin is in for the 1/2 day ride - Curt? Wezul? Jack? Steve?

    Not that many weekend rides left............... Snow is coming and it's going to be a lonnnnnnnng winter here on the soon to be frozen tundra.

    Nuts, nerts, shoot. O.K. fine, let me get on the horn to Cycle Werks tomorrow and push back the F service a week, that will be O.K. Gotta do this one Brian, I've put off riding with you too long.
    Who else is coming?
    Come on guys, beg, plead, kill . . . . whatever it takes.
