    When do you want to leave Eric? I am available anytime with 1 hour notice, but was planning leaving at 6 from the Cubbys at Mormon Bridge Rd, aka 48th and McKinley. I don't know who Chris is going up with since there are 3 groups.

      Meet you at 5 Eric.

      Sounds good

    The intent of leaving Thursday at 5:00 PM was to have Friday to ride more great roads without pressure and there is no scenery to be missed riding at night.

    NEW PROPOSAL!

    What if we leave from the Cubbys at 48th and McKinley at 6:00 or 6:30 PM instead of 5 There is nothing magic about 5.. Would that be of any interest to the folks leaving early Friday morning?
    I don't think Eric will protest.

      I will leave Thursday noon with Dick/Ken.

      When do you want to leave tonight Frank?

    Ken Clark is out--too much going on at work. Looks like just Kao & I will be leaving Thursday @ 12:15, so we'll see you guys late Thursday nite or Friday AM.
    (Is Justin going? Haven't heard what his plans are--)

    Guys, sorry to say this but I don't think I'm going to make this one. I've got a bit too much on my plate and things are getting tight. I'm hoping to catch an AR ride later this year (maybe not Sept. (getting married 9/12)).

    Ken mentioned he's getting super busy and mentioned he won't make this one either, but he can speak for himself.

    So that you guys know.. The Round Barn is full. I had to reserve on the motel across the street. If any one needs to split, let me know and I'll check to see if I can be moved to two double beds.

    Something to keep in mind when riding at the end of a hard day of work and long distance touring.

    Ken Clark and I are leaving Thursday about 12:15 from the station at 72nd & Crown Point, staying at the Econo Lodge Inn & Suites in Dubuque Thursday night. Friday taking the Great River Road up to Lansing IA, then across to Spring Green. Everybody is welcome to join us if the timing works for you--

    What unit did you get, Dennis? After you talked about this on Sunday, I have been looking at the Sena SMH10R units. However, if you are going to get one, I may just wait until you have tested it to see how you like it.

      Sure thing; I had planned on riding to Prairie du Chien and then following the river eastward. Would that work for you?

      May 4, 2014

    • Dennis S.

      I'm cool with whatever route we take. Just need to make stops about every 130 miles for gas, but I'll let you know when I need gas. I imagine your bike can go a bit longer.

      May 5, 2014

  • Dick D.

    I'm thinking Ken Clark & I will leave about noon on Thursday & go as far as Dubuque. I'll let everyone know where we're staying. Plan to ride the Great River Road up to Lansing, IA on Friday, then on to Spring Green.

    TWISTAR wins... there will be other track days coming up. I can leave on Thursday...

    Can you talk to your self with Bluetooth?

    April 30, 2014

    • Dennis S.

      There is a setting so you can hear your self when talking over radio or phone calls (I suppose for your own verification); so technically yes you can.

      April 30, 2014

  • Dennis S.

    Anyone planning on using a bluetooth headset on the ride? (Picked up one myself, would like to try it out)

    April 30, 2014

  • Eric

    I'm.good leaving Thurs night.

    April 25, 2014

  • Kao

    I'm on the fence right now between this and track day at Hasting. If I decided to go, I can leave on Thursday...

    April 25, 2014

  • Frank T.

    Dick has a good point. Can anyone else leave Thursday afternoon, say 5ish? We can stay along the Mississippi Thursday night then ride leisurely to Spring Green on Friday.
    I would be IN for this.

  • P.J. H.

    If I remember correctly, I'm sharing room 101 with Justin.

    April 18, 2014

  • Dick D.

    I'd be interested in leaving Thursday, maybe ride the Great River Road on Friday. Not a challenging, technical ride but fun & great rural scenery.

    April 18, 2014

  • Frank T.

    If you haven't made reservations at the Round Barn Motel in Spring Green, post something here. Some of us may have a double room to share.
