The UP...You got a deer catcher on the front of that thing?
In the U.P. he had better have a moose deflector :p ........ they have those 1500lb+ road hazards up there :eek: ........ these are not to be confused with the 2000lb+ road hazard that Lamont got video of ;)

I'm in the Marquette, MI area -- but it's not too bad for me to get to Northern Wisconsin (Green Bay), or to the Iron Mountain, Marinette (WI), Escanaba, Ironwood (MI) areas. There are some pretty nice rides up here, but the weather is always a factor (and highly unpredictable).

I haven't seen any moose (on the road) yet, but deer are a constant hazzard, and you have to be willing to modify your rides accordingly (they are nocturnal animals, and are especially active around dusk.) If you're coming here (as opposed to me going there) bring your windshield -- we've got bugs the size of hummingbirds up here.


I am potentially coming down to the Milwaukee area in late September/early October -- but I don't have the exact dates yet. The year before last my boat froze solid, and cracked the block, the week before Thanksgiving, when we had a blizzard, and temps dropped into the single digits - - so let's not drag our feet TOO much.

I'm in the Twin Cities...originally from Jefferson, WI...I'd be in depending on when (school and work keep me pretty busy...wish I would have done the proper school path originally!)

It sounds like Green Bay area may be more-or-less "central". Are there any good rides around there?

Is there an evolving concensus?

What we need is like a map -- with little pushpins in it with our locations, so we can see how we are distributed.

I'm in Milwaukee, I'm good to go. Green Bay is a good meeting place, plus they have a nice micro brewery up there with some really good beer :bigthumbsup:

Can we get a "head count"? (Should probably include dates of preference.)

I'm in. (U.P. Michigan)

It would have to be a weekend, but I can get away Friday afternoon. I'm my own boss, so I can adjust my schedule, with advance notice -- I do work some weekends.


This is another topic, BUT, I've been thinking of a trip down to the Blue Ridge Parkway/Skyline Drive (Virgina/N.Carolina) before the snow flies. (Would probably trailer at least part of the way down. Looking at a 3-day (or 3 1/2-day) weekend. Anybodu want to do this? Absolutely fabulous place to ride.

I live in the mid West (STL) but no where near where you guys are riding to or from! How about riding down this way some time?

My favorite ride from Green Bay is up through Cecil and then west thru the Reservation. Certainly not a long ride, but I'm sure we could get lost from there somewhere. Door County thru Baileys Harbor up to North Port and back down thru Fish Creek is another good ride and some FANTASTIC sights. Both are 100 +/- rides, but maybe one Sat. and then one Sun. and back for a packer game maybe. It would be great to have a tailgate party with all the bikes. Tickets might be tough, but we have a group that tailgates and watches the games on TV in the back of a truck. Just throwin out some ideas. Home games b4 the snow flies would be Sept. 10 (Bear Game!!!!!!) Sept. 17 Saints, and Oct. 8th against the Rams. All 3 games are Noon starts. Like I said, just gettin the ball rollin a little.
