    I rode my BMW R100 GS on the "thumper dual sport route" of the Spring "Ride 4 Research".
    The Wabeno event also has an Adventure Ride which runs you on 230 miles
    of hard packed gravel and sugar sand forest roads, some fine two track and paved roads.

    R4R is on the AMA - KTM National Dual Sport Trail Riding Series and the AMA - BMW National Adventure Riding Series.
    The roster of bikes were a split of KTM and Japanese bikes mostly under 500 cc.

    When Dale and I arrived at R4R, first job was to set up the tent and do the sound check.

    The next item on the agenda was to go to the Farm and sign-up for the test ride on the KTM.
    A track was set up for open field ride and another track for hero section ride.
    Dale rode the EXC 250 and I rode the 450 on the hero. I left my camera on my BMW, a totally missed photo op.








    L to R, Bryan, Ben, Jim and Dale.
    Also known as Cannonshot, Benp1981, WI Thumper, and Dalejoe







    KTM also had a 990 Adventure to ride









    The ride from the Wabeno Camp to the KTM Farm was on a 3 mile Rail to Trail.
    The trail went over a bridge or two and past some nice ponds,

    Pictured above is my R100GS clean and before I changed the wheel set to the full knobbies.

    Friday night had us checking out the bikes and talking dual sport.
    Shortly after sunset we grabbed some beer
    and went downtown to the bandshell to listen to some classic 70 and 80's music.
    We were starving, so the choice was a Wisconsin tavern Fish Fry
    or 2 buck brat and burgers.
    We passed on the fish fry and had Wabeno Fireman's burgers.

    The following photos were taken Saturday morning before the Rider Meeting.












    September 2008: Big Woods 200
    Northwoods hospitality and great riding in the Nicolet National Forest

    Location: Wabeno, WI. Southeast of Crandon in Forest County.
    About 90 miles northwest of Green Bay.

    200 Mile -- 2 Day Dual Sport ride in the heart of the Nicolet National Forest.

    Self-guided route sheets for Friday;
    Saturday loop will cover about 150 miles,
    Sunday will be about 100. Mix of woods/ATV trails/Jeep track/USFS roads, and a few paved roads.
    Optional Hero Sections are single-track enduro trail loops.
    Gas is available every 60-70 miles at local gas stations.
    Much of the trail is out in the boonies, so bring your GPS and cell phone.

    Don't forget a camera,
    and although it seldom rains for more than 90 percent of the ride, bring rain gear.

    Great pics Jim. Looks like they where worth all the waiting after all.

    Thanks to Wisconsin Dual Sport Rider for putting on a great event!

    We raised around $13800 for cancer research and had a great time doing it!

    I rode the Adventure route on Saturday, 237 miles of excellent roads and trails..... and then there was some soft sand and some nice muddy stretches thrown in too. I did a pretty fair job of keeping the rubber side down (and sideways), and did a pretty good number on my ankle trying to do so, which kept me at the fairgrounds Sunday.

    Thanks to Little John, the WDSR and every warm body that made this ride yet another success!

    Anyone get video of the "extra" entertainment Friday night?

    Smile Lily Pond



    Lily pond we traveled by twice.
    The second time I stopped as this weeks Photo Assignment was "Reflections"

    Once I caught up with Randy and Dale, I asked Randy what time dinner was.
    Randy jokingly responded with a "keep taking photos, and we will not get any dinner"

    That reminds me of that Coen Brothers Movie: Millers Crossing... Looks like the road in the movie...
    Anyway, Neat shot. Great images over-all!

    Thumbs up The Ride Home

    The 2008 R4R Wabeno Dual Sport Run was a great event. And it was part of a charity in which we gave much money. The weather was good. I did not hurt myself. Nice ride up and a great ride back.

    The ride back, I took the Rail to Trail Route to Carter.
    About a mile or two is this old RR bridge that is always a photo op.

    From Carter I rode the Diamond Roof Gravel road through the Nicolet National Forest.








    Mountain, Wisconsin

    Arrow Kettle Moraine Sport Riders/






    The KMSR Dual Sport is one of my fav-o-right events of the year. I rode down to the D.S. Ride with PapaLobster. Lobster decided to ride to the KMSR and not trailer his KTM EXC450. Eight hours, 70 dirt and 175 road miles on a inch and half wide KTM seat makes my BMW R100GS Lazy Boy seat look like the bike to have, well at least for the highway miles and also from my butt's point of view.

    Dual Sport Ride

    Ride over 70 miles of scenic secondary roads connecting privately owned properties, each with one to five-mile off-road trail loops.

    Ride any motorcycle you want to ride in the woods, as long it is street legal. There will be paved road sections, so headlight, tail light, brake light, license plate and muffler are mandatory. Note: Loud is bad. 96 decibel limit will be enforced.
