Wisconsin to Pacific Northwest
« on: June 17, 2017, 10:52:51 PM »
It seems today is the chosen day for rides - I departed Madison, Wisconsin, en route to Port Townsend, Washington. I'm spending some time in the Black Hills, Beartooth Pass (on Johnny''s recommendation) and Glacier National Park if it opens soon (currently snowed in).

Got some distance today to get through the boring stuff. Temps were good and mostly clear weather until mid-South Dakota when I started hitting a lot of thunderstorms and then a hellacious cross wind. Lost one of my centerstand bolts somewhere in SD.

Tomorrow I plan to slow the pace a bit to see some sights.

Haven't ridden 700 miles on my brick yet, but 700 isn't an issue on my HD,  850 and over, the bsr gets cranky.

I have discovered this is the (or at least a) downside to sharing Rever rides. My family especially likes to comment on the max speed.  :riding:

Ahh...never had one. Explains why I didn't know it. 


OffTopic: Not sure why my quotes/replies seem to have text for ants from time to time. I don't do that on porpoise.

Safe travels Kmev!  Haven't done that trip on the brick yet but have in the car...  Beautiful country.

MIBrick - Cutting and pasting may be the issue.  I saw that happen on one post of mine.

This happens when you use "copy / paste" to insert text into your reply.. to fix it, hit preview before you post, then select all text in your reply and choose a font and font size to apply to the entire post.
