    The biggest issue the club has concerns with is sound. You need to be under 96 Dba for the ride.

Maybe soem JB weld and duct tape.

    I got a flat last year and had to ride back to the fairgrounds to change tubes, a tube and 2 small irons would have prevented that. Really, whatever you think you need to make emergency trail side repairs.

I know Matt and his professor are coming for sure , He found and figured some stuff out about breast cancer and how to treat it that could be extremely beneficial to 50 % of the people that get breast cancer that nothing else seems to work for. Kelly is doing colon cancer stuff, from the papers she has published there seems an even greater correlation between small amounts of exercise and diet and not getting colon cancer, to over simplify, eating wheat bread and taking a walk after work could keep it at bay ( at least that's what I understand of it). so all the money from the bike raffle the dollar raffles that we do at dinner sat night all will go to the 2 labs to help buy new equipment, supplies whatever they need but not to someones income/pocket. so far we have collected and donated over $30,000.

    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .saint Hubert's Shrine



    SAINT HUBERT'S SHRINE
    Located near Goodman, Wisconsin. (Marinette County) The Shrine was started 52 years ago by a group of dedicated Hunters & Christians

    Today, we can all enjoy the fruits of their labor! Stop in and experience the feeling of tranquility, that the founders felt when they stopped here in the morning, planing out the mornings hunt. They prayed to God to keep them safe, and to provide them with a successful hunt, that could feed them, and their families.

    (Michael, Michael Motorcycle)

    Friday night, Mike told me he was gonna ride the T-Dub 200 (Yamaha TW200, You know, the mini bike with the fat tires!)on Sunday's short "Thumper Route". I told him that he should ride it on the 140 mile Saturday route instead of riding his DRZ400.

    To my surprise he rode it at a very good pace for the 140 mile Saturday's ride. T-Dubs Rock.

    Thumbs up Ride 4 Research = "social rally event" + Dual sport ride = FUN



    The Wabeno rides are as much a "social rally event" as a Dual sport ride. It was nice to socialize with my fellow Wisconsin Dual Sport Club members,

    . . .and to share a campfire with F.I.B., Fireman88, Lobster Crew, Shawn, Ray, Mike, Dan, Jim, Mark, Bob, Charley, Tony, Andrew, John, Ben, Brad . . .

    One of the perks of membership in the Wisconsin Dual Sport Club are the so called work weekends. The Club rents the Trump Lake Lodge near Wabeno. Little John puts on his chef's hat and feeds all the workers.

    During the day, club members ride the trails and trim branches that could swat riders in the face. Workers also remove dangerous rocks and unseen obstacles while recording mileage, marking GPS tracks and placing directional arrows on the route.

    On Saturday of the work weekend, I volunteered to ride with PapaLobster with his GS and Elmer with his TW200 to check one of the routes. It was a fun ride.

    Another of the perks is "burning" a trail.
    You need to ride hard to establish a path
    to enable riders to follow the burned in path.
