    From Jack on the LT forum: Anyone else interested is welcome. If you're interested we can meet around 10am at the intersection of I-94 and HWY 20 in Racine County.

    Sat would be best - I see others have some routes planned - not sure yet where to go - leaning against Racine because I grew up in that area and would rather forget

    I have been everywhere else around IL. Ready to try WI as it is close by for me.

    this is a full day ride.~450 miles.
    Can we shave off some miles by going rt 18 instead 60 or is the route worth it? I want to enjot the scenery too and take my time
    Either way - be there at 8am.

    Had a rough start to Sat as my Rt lost the clutch cable about 8 miles and 20 lights from my Harley but I made it and enjoyed a nice ride around SE WI. At least the Harley is a great back up! And mine is quiet and fast.
    Sh i t t y seat,

    Planned, but that is something I'd want to do solo. The experience of going solo vs in a group is totally different, and for me, far more satisfying.

    BTW, the ring road (paved) tour would be boring as all the interesting roads and sights are inland as well, but gravel. When I go, it'll be for four weeks. Its an out of the way place to go to not see it all.

    All you need is some very good maps and a good imagination. Then do some digging on the internet. Having it all laid out by an over-priced tour company takes all the fun and adventure out of the tour.

    Weekend Ride - Take 2 September 5-7

    As another riding season draws to a close - probably with Martin in the lead for miles ridden since January - I only have 7000 under my belt this season... This was in ON. Sounds like fun and it's a beautiful ride thru the Kettle Moraine region to get there!

    Anyone from the Chicago Riders interested in going? (If you don't you'll be looking back in January regretting that you didn't say yes.....)

    Hey Brian,
    Heck yeah I'm going. Got the room reservation and sent in my form w/check a few weeks ago. Last year was a blast. Let me know how your schedule looks. There is a remote chance my boss might drop a "let's go to Boston" business trip on me last minute but it's like I said, remote.
