    I tried that already. They said there were not enough Hotel rooms in the area.

    19 BMWMOA Nationals under my belt, and I have no idea what I am doing.

    There's even a Fairgrounds speedway, but it's Nascar and booked solid just about every weekend.

    I'll mention it to Chuck, and perhaps set up an appointment just in case I haven't been looking at the right spot.

    Thanks for the suggestion
    personally, and given the state of many city/county/state budgets, i think it would be worthwhile asking about that downtown area... using the convention center for the event and the park for camping.

    but who knows.

    Yes, Old Style beer. A bar in my hometown had it on tap. It was kept very cold, served in a frosted mug, and was the best tasting beer I ever had on a warm summer night.

    Speaking of beer, anyone remember Hamm's and the commercials (cartoon style) with the bear? I remember seeing these commercials during Cubs' games. From the land of sky blue waters, Hamm's.

    When I was a little kid, my folk used to meet friends for dinner at a local tavern when we went back to visit; Don & Katies was the name of the place in Paris, Illinois. Every inch of the walls along the ceiling was covered with magically illuminated (to me at 8) Hamm's signs. Don & Katies is where my parents made the monumental mistake of revealing to me that a "steak" could be had when eating away from home.

    Thanks for the memory!

    I love this idea because of many reasons. Some great riding around the area along the Mississippi River bluffs on both sides, in Minnesota and Wisconsin. The best reason is that I live in River Falls, WI and it is close and would love to show off my neck of the woods. I can't always make regional rallies, but do my best to try.
    Really, some beautiful riding with plenty of winding twisty roads all over this area. A lot of good food places and the people are "biker friendly". They are used to bikes all around this area in Spring, Summer and Fall. (Winter, not so much)
