    Talking First-ever "The Bucky" Dual Sport Ride - near Madison, WI

    Madwrench took this photo of me on the ride
    on the KLX250
    kinda answers why I had a harder time with the slimey hills than the other KLX250s

    What is the old saying . . .
    don't weigh the same as the CC of the motor. . .
    at least for slimey hill climbing

    I have never been on anything as greasy as those hills.
    Hell, oil on a road race track has better traction!!

    . . .not that muddy, but really damn slippery!

    But dang I had fun! This ride will be a blast with drier weather.

    Great properties to ride on, thanks to all the land owners!



    The road route was perfect

    I was busy trying to do the hills and I didn't have much time to use the camera.




    This part of the state,
    the flat areas were farmed
    the hills were the woods

    Arrow ++++++++++++++++++++++++The Bucky D.S. Ride



    To me it seemed the route before lunch the hill were less slimey than after lunch

    BTW great lunch,
    wish I could of stayed for the supper, but I wanted to get home before the cold set in.










    Lot of elevation changes in one ride

    I liked the grass cycle track that we ran on





    Lot of nice single track

    Smile +++++++++++++++++++++++Madison Motorcycle Club Dual Sport Ride


    There are three Fall season dual-sport venues in Wisconsin:
    Kettle Moraine (southeastern),
    Bucky(Cross Plains, WI southwest)
    & with Wabeno (northern Wisconsin) also having a spring DS ride.

    Wisconsin Fall rides are popular as the corn fields make good connector routes between dirt sections



    Always good to see the ladies out roosting it, too
    (Editor note: These two photos of the gals were taken
    by my fellow Madison Motorcyle Club member "Madwrench".


    BTW, the MMC is one of the very oldest AMA Clubs in the USA

    This was only my seventh organized dual sport event, but by far my favorite.

    Hey- many thanks to the boys who helped push my butt up the sweet quarter mile mud slide. I wanted to thank you again in person at dinner, but because I did a little too much pre-Bucky celebrating on Friday night, I never made it back to the VFW after the ride for the post-Bucky celebration. Thanks again though!

    Smile ++++++First-ever "The Bucky" Dual Sport Ride - "The Truck"



    Early 50's Chevy pickup truck, restored worth about 5 G

    Cost to restore this early Chevy pickum up truck - about 5 G

    Seeing an early 50's Chevy pickup truck on the trail . . . Priceless

    Lots of fun on the greasy hills. I was going to give Matt's bike a shot up this hill that I was at the top of, ready for pictures, and promptly crashed it with the gobbed-up mud on the tire. Anyways, nice finish to the hill with a stander:


    Spin to win!


    Lots of this on the hill. Actually watched about 8 bikes take the hill. 2 made it all the way up. The difference between the other 6 (and me) was how far they made it up before having to do The Walk.

    Oops.

    I figured the truck was WAY to nice to be junked!!!

    I chatted with the farmer who owned this barn
    The farm was in the same family for one Century
    He was also one of the farmers who let use cross his land
    Thanks

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MUD - Rode hard, put away muddy


    MUD
    Rode hard, put away muddy

    These mud photos were taken by my buddy Dan888
    my KLX250s was near as dirty

    started out Kaw Green,
    ended up Cow brown

I think some of the club members were dissapointed because they had to cut some of the off road sections out, and the rest of the off road sections were really muddy in spots. They knew what a great trail they had before all the rain , and I think it was disappointing to present a trail that was only a part of what they had put together. To me it was awesome the way it was ! I can only imagine what it must have been like before it was shortened, and before some of it got so muddy. BTW the shortened version was still 90 miles long, and I thought some of the mud was fun. The route consisted of woods sections linked together by twisty Wisconsin backroads. Gotta say, some of those twisty backroads were almost as fun as riding in the woods. A big thank you goes out to the land owners who graciously allowed us to ride their land, and the folks at the Madison Motorcycle Club who worked so hard to put the ride on. All the money made from the Bucky was donated to the American Legion In Cross Plains Wi, (where the event was held Chilly wet morning.
    Sound check station. Muddy.

    Talking `````````````````````````````````Norway Truck Trail



    Norway Michigan
    Norway Truck Trail

    A 35 mile ATV trail also open to motorcycles.
    A $16 yearly Michigan ORV sticker is required.

    the water crossings can be deep with rocks embedded in the bottoms.

    My buddy Mark, a fellow Wisconsin BMW member
    and Mud Rider rode his KTM 450 on the Norway Trail with me

    Cool ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++Building a trail



    (May 7- 8)
    Wisconsin Dual Sport Club cut some trail


    How do you cut trail?
    First determine the route
    then mark with directional place cards
    remove large trees with a chain saw
