    Cool Let's go campin!

    What's up, little campers? This weekend is our ride/camp in Maiden Rock! Thank God!

    I'd like to go wheels up at 10:30am on Saturday morning from that same convenience store we like on the northeast corner of the intersection of Hudson Rd and Woodbury Dr in Woodbury, MN. Be there at 10am. From there we'll ride to Prescott, where we'll stop at the gas station to hook up with anyone from Wisconsin who wants to meet us there. They should be there between 11-11:30am.

    (The pace of all of our riding this weekend will be easy and safe. I don't want anyone flyin' off the road this time! )

    Then we'll head to Maiden Rock, WI, for lunch and to set up camp. In the afternoon, I'll lead a laid back twisty back road tour for those who want to ride some more, and we'll come back to camp.

    For supper, you can either grill at the campsite, or eat out in Pepin, WI. I think everyone should be on their own, choosing to eat together only if they'd like to, to give folks a chance for some space if they want it. If you're going to grill, you'll need to bring the grill items from home because there are no grocery stores in the area, unless you want to go to Red Wing.

    In the evening, we'll hang out at the campsite and enjoy a beverage or two...or three...or four. There are bars in town within walking distance that sell off sale beer, so you don't have to haul anything from home unless you want something special. I think the little gas station in town has ice and styrofoam coolers.

    The next day we should be wheels up by 9am, headed for Pepin, WI, for breakfast. Apparently there's a new place in town that you "can't miss" right on the highway, but I don't know the name of it, and neither did the person who told me about it. We're so eating there!

    If there are Beginnerbikers who didn't want to ride/camp on Saturday, but DID want to do a Sunday ride with us, they should be in Maiden Rock, WI, by 8:45am.

    After that we'll head east into the Land of Fast Sweepers and enjoy some of the best motorcycling roads in all of western Wisconsin. Again, this will be a laid back ride, not a sport ride. We'll eat lunch somewhere out there and then head home through Wabasha, MN, so we can take the lovely CR-60 through Zumbro Falls, MN, and hook up with SR-52 back into the Cities.

    Sound good? LET'S RIDE!!

    The stealership cant even look at it until Wednesday or Thursday and then if they have to order a part it will be another couple of days. But, on a good note they said if it is a possibility they screwed up something when I got my new tire installed that they will make it right.

    AND, if my speedo cable ever does brake, I am pretty confident I could replace it myself!
