Ride to Oconomowoc, attempt number 2.

Ride will be 101 miles with a few  fast sections, and quite a few corners in between, map below. *This is not a ride for beginners.*  125 cc or larger scooters capable of 50 mph. I estimate it will be over 3.5 hours of riding, and that doesn't include time spent at the rest stops. I have 3 rest stops planned, though I might add a few quick stops to rehydrate. The 1st and 3rd stops have gas(at mile 27 and mile 71.) Lunch break in Oconomowoc at ~50 miles in, around 12:30 pm, the most convenient options are a Culver's, Schlotzsky's Deli, and Sammy's Taste Of Chicago that are right next to each other. Or I am open to suggestions. Ride will take us down 3 "new" rustic roads, 10, 86 and 115, so if anyone is working on getting their patch or certificate let me know and we can stop so you can get your pictures, at least 10 and 86, 115 didn't have signs as of my last ride up there.

Kickstands up at 10:35 am.

    Spectacular day of scooting, everyone who didn't go really missed out. We rode part of the Kettle Moraine Scenic Drive, several Rustic Roads, and more corners than you can shake a stick at. Plus, we saw some great views along the way.

      Eric does a fantastic job researching and planning as well as test riding his routes. The mississippi/galena run was a LONG day in the saddle, But a run over to monroe/new glarus/mount horeb might be more doable at some point.

      Even a trip out to New Glarus would probably need to be a two day ride. I did the four Rustic Roads out there two weeks ago and it was 225 miles and took 6.5 hours, and I didn't make any long stops or do any exploring.

    50 mph "indicated" counts?
