General Banter / SOLSTICE Celebration ride

 A wonderful day to get out. My northerly Stark route had no traffic and a lot of smooth fresh pavement. Hopefully many of you also got some riding done.

  I've seen the drop off over the last decade. Understandably my weekday Wisconsin rides attract few folks as most others aren't retired. Used to get 6 or 8 but the last 2 seasons dwindled from 1 to 3 to none. I've kept posting them hoping to provide a little action especially to newbies who I love introducing to the Hill Country. Still contemplating a Fall color ride but not sure. Probably try again next May.

  I hate to admit it but his ability & talent cannot be denied. The Honda may have something to do with his success but the other makes are closely competitive. His dustups with Rossi are so much like Roberts vs Spencer in 83/84. I still think D.C. is a good handle for him but he's earned his achievements.

  The bike world has lost another of the ReaL Road racers.

  I would usually preface that with 'Happy' but I can't say that considering the present state of our nation.

  I'm curious as to the area that this ride took in-rural?  In the very old days(70s) riding with WBMC we'd be side by side. Those of us of the "Café" bent would go on ahead or play catch up so as to not mess up the pack. Having meeting points in town will attract some who want the negative style activity. My meetups being 100mi away don't fit in with their idea of fun. We've had a bad few weeks with the young fellow's "suicide by sport bike" and the 5 others just recently. Making folks wear proper gear would probably be as tough as taking  the AKs & ARs away.  OK,2 cents from Oldheimer.  P.S. What's the MORTAL COIL?

Wasn't SSB by chance? Sounds a lot like the old Caribou Death Rides in Coon rapids.

  Only a couple nasty bits. 88 from U to Gilmanton bad!  Newly paved N has new class 5 too and the tight corners are well covered but the sweepers were clean. Hit some old favorites-XX to U was nice, H is ok but Wolf road is newer. Trout run is nice w grass to the pavement-no gravel! Doelle Valley to 95  then G to Shaeffer Valley was fun new bit. Hope others folks were able to get out on a wonderful day.

 I was lucky to have a job with flexible vacation policies that allowed midweek biking or xc skiing. The family does come first.

 After a successful 400mi+ a week ago I'm primed for doing more. With 464 members registered it seems very few are interested in participating let alone planning or leading a ride. I'm thinking it is the old "Motorcycle Enthusiasts versus Riders". Not to knock anyone but it is obvious we must accept that and hope some will keep these activities going in the future. I'd love to keep riding 'til 75 or 80 but who knows. That said I'm looking to go again mid to late June. GJ
