All day prowling the Chee today both on and above road.  First was Madison for a Reuben omelette at the famous Mickies Dairy Bar in the shadow of Camp Randall Badgers football stadium.  Then south 10 miles to rural Brooklyn and some aviation get with long time pal Mike and his daughter.  Flew west dive bomber my home for pictures the further west to the Grant county seat Lancaster International. Switched pilots so I could get some stick time back to KMJR Iowa County Regional where I plan to soon lease a hanger.  Landing looks “pretty nahyss “ swapped rides at Mineral Point son jumped in 172 to base and my K .  I wandered home to build a stump burning fire- just pulled the brats—yummy.  Last pic is one morning early this week my yard was soo purdy- roads of the Chee around dawn haze in the furrows sun in yer eyes cresting hills.  I routinely crack 100 on the clock.. someone here termed K75s a mile muncher.  So true!  Bilt Techno helmet with integrated Bluetooth near useless on K, on my G wing with its awesome fairing- not too bad.  eBay 85$ was a steal I thought- can’t tecommend.... Great day to be alive

Back when I rode a Goldwing and had a Racine address we discovered the Milton Family Restaurant and would often ride over on a holiday (Memorial Day, Independence Day or Labor Day) to have breakfast there.

So today, Momma is in Alabama visiting sick relatives, so I rode over to Milton to have breakfast (almost 11 by the time I finished), then down to a Yamaha dealer south of Janesville, a quick stop at a Triumph dealer near Janesville and back home.

Just  few notes - until I got to Milton, I saw more turkeys on the road than anything else - real wild turkeys!!  Just west of here, a couple ran out of the ditch in front of me and scared the bejeebers out of me, then about 10 miles later one adult with a flock of young ones (too many to count, but at least ten).

Nearing Milton I rode past the gasahol plant - interesting smell, that!

On the way home, I had a lucky whim when riding north off US Hwy 14 on County M, I decided to leave M and run north on County Line Rd. County Hwy A was completely torn up - impassable - going west onto Rock county - I don't know how far. Lucky for me, I wanted to proceed in the other direction. County Hwy A needs rebuilding in Rock county - ultimately this will be a good thing.

Part of the attraction of the ride to Milton is riding past the south end of Whitewater lake. I'll try to post a couple pics of the route. Not that many twisties, but  a lot of nice scenery. With the rainy summer we have had, everything is green yet at the end of August. The high today is 70F, just a really nice day for a ride. I need to do this more often.







I don't know why Google maps insists on showing that goofy loop in the red circle on the second map.

Next year I hope to take another ride to Wisconsin to visit family in Monroe where I grew up.

It would be fun to have a lunch meetup somewhere in SW Cheeseland.

I’d enjoy seeing you again.  Loaded up my bride for a beautiful tour of SW WI and a stop for prime rib in Dubuque.  Great weather in the Chee.  Just enjoying the sunset and wishing this summer would never end.

Rockton Bar- next ride!  Met Johnny in Madison for Breekkie at Micky’s Dairy Bar -see Johnny sighting pic backed up to Camp Randall Stadium on site where’s massive obelisk statue of a phallus was just recently removed https://www.thecollegefix.com/u-wisconsin-madison-penis-shaped-sculpture-to-come-down/  enter Johnny a reasonable facsimile in its place entirely by coincidence...😂😬😏. Anyway that was just too easy to not exploit you can see the construction or if you will- deconstruction site in the background.  Didn’t occur to me until now 😜Madison is A good midway meetup point for us. We talked K bikes on the diner stools then charged due south to my mechanic Bear in metropolitan Juda Wi population -6
 Bear generally wrenches Jap bikes (my 85’ GW resto a huge success)-but let me plug him here for fair rates and veryfinenworkmanship.  That’s a new word... Two Battlaxae drop shipped, mounted with new steel valve stems price too low to admit publicly.  Would that Momma weren’t waiting on me we’d be still in the Yee Ha lane.  (I take on Johnnyspeak like an accent when traveling abroad)—We hope to meet and greet again in October.  175 clicks on the GW now w 112k and rolling strong.  Fantastic bike.

Mmm... Just had that reuben omellete at Mickey's for lunch.  Good call. 

I took off Friday to run an errand up to Chippewa Falls, and then off to a buddy's cabin for a weekend.   Finally got to test the "Dawn to Dusk" properties of my taintillator.  I think I am ready to iron butt to my cousins wedding in Grand Bay, AL next month.

Poo Spreaders in relief and mapping Q+A
« Reply #86 on: October 21, 2019, 12:58:36 AM »
It’s all just fine giggling about poo flingers til you crest a hill in a pre dawn drizzle and my Battlaxes make like dull ice skates!  Very slippery that! Managed to keep rubber down. Stinky Beemer Betz in need of a bath!perhaps after the first hard freeze...

So what’s a good choice of ride tracker mapping app?  Can Google maps be used? Or am I seeing routes entered manually afterwards?

Work demands have been lighter pms of late affording me time to wander the General Mineral Point area in search of twisties.  I need to return with go pro to show a sharply rising 270 degree bend on county Q outside MP Johnie take note!! Worth the ride!  Let’s fit in one more fall ride?  Maybe some others in the area would care to meet up in MAdison some upcoming Saturday?  Flew most of this afternoon over the same area.  Sign me Inwinterdenial.

I use Rever - https://www.rever.co/ - I was on the free version for about a year but them switched to the paid version so that I can create routes and also follow routes done previously by friends etc.

Glad you kept it upright, farm country riding can be scary.  All my bikes are in the shed now, getting ready for winter work.  The maps I post I just recreate in google maps after the ride.

Filmcamera, I have Rever installed. The first impression is great.  Thanks.

So normally I spend the workday daydreaming about this button hook corner a loop of County Road QQ offState Road 39 NE of Mineral Point.  The lens doesn't do justice to the elevation change but my pan mid-corner shows how oncoming traffic is visible allowing a full-on assault.  Switchbacks in the mountains are generally blind and you turn in track-style at your peril  Today I with a cold and wet condition- a slow roll and some video work is about all I'm up to.

Pictures are better than words even in the October gloom today:

Niiice!  I was out riding yesterday too - you fuckers could have called me!!!     But I took the sportster out, so I probably would have been verboten anyway.

Hilltopper - I dug out trench about 50 yards of snow last weekend.  Left a good rut in the muddy yard getting the bike out though!

It was balmy out!  I wanted to take the K11 out but when I was checking fluids some gorilla must have tightened the drive shaft gear oil bolt down cause I couldn't budge it without getting worried about stripping it out.  I put a lil wd-40 on it maybe that will help.

I can box up that harness tonight and mail it if someone will be around to get it, I have everything squared away on mine.

They just put a fresh coat of salt out by me with snow this morning.  Maybe it will wash away Thursday.
