Ok so here is the deal. I'll be honest right of the bat. I am a very shy person. Its hard for me to get out there and meet people. My girlfriend and I love to ride together and were curious if there are any "rides" around our area.

Its a new year! Well almost anyways :)

What kind of rides do you guys like to do? My dad and I did a Merrimac Ferry trip a couple times last year and it was fun. Id be curious what routes are your favorites.

I usually get there real early, then leave early. I have stuff to do on Sunday. If you see a Green/Cream Aero 1100 parked on the street in front of The Red Mouse in Pine Bluff, that`s mine!

Anyone feeling the itch to ride yet? I know I am. Winter can seem really long at times with no end in sight.

What are your riding plans for 2016?

Well I moved from my Aero to a Triumph Thunderbird 1600, but plan on riding as much as I can this season. Hoping to start lining up rides with my work and kid schedule in the coming weeks. I really would like to one big ride in, 500+ miles, this season.

Ive never done a 500+ mile ride before. Heck never done a 150+ mile ride. Not sure Rachels bottom could handle it until I am able to afford a premium seat. Where would you want to go if you could go on such a trip?

Jybrd,

Here`s nice little overnighter for to try out.
'
Leave your place and ride to Wildcat Mountain.


Then ride to The Mindoro Cut (hyw 108 just eats of La Crosse, WI.)


Those are two roads Every motorcyclist should ride, and they`re almost in your backyard.
'
After the Mindoro Cut ride over to La Crosse,WI. and ride up to GRANDADS BLUFF.
'

NOW you rode 3 of the best roads in the country! Ride into La Crosse, tour the brewery.

Now take a relaxing ride down The Great River Road to Praire du Chein

Ride across The Mississippi River to Iowa and try your luck at The Casino and take in the view from Pikes Peak.

Now you`ll be tired. Stay the night in Boscobel,WI. and The River Inn.
