Yes it was a Blast!  Even the slow stop and creep along M-29 couldn't dampen it. Apparently it was Garage Sale Day and the whole length of M-29 was nothing but garage sales.  It was great seeing Dave, Art and Sean again.  One of Dave's coworkers, Kirk, rode along with us.

Here's my pics:

That's Art and Dave in the last pic.  Dave rode his Blue 750A.

We had to go feed the lizard after his harrowing run in with the law!  He has terrible table manors.

I'm glad that you guys had fun and I am seriously bummed that I couldn't participate this year. But I will definitely be ready next year.

Correct Dennis...here are a few pics. The first is the hand-off from Sean Barney to Tews. Forgot to get a pic of Tews to Dennis...sorry. Dennis (scrambler) gave us a great ride in the Kettle Moraine area as he did last year. The sun just did not want to shine the entire day, but GZ was a little tan from the MI riders anyway. We ended up at The Cedars for lunch...here are a few pics. Present - Dennis (scrambler K3), Hoodelyhoo (Trevor K6), Jerry (Jerry K1), Seanbarney - 750F SS, Tews (Nick K1),
johnie (John KO)...and of course let us not forget GZ. The food was great and the company was even better. We got some nice comments on the bikes from a BMW & Harley riders at the food stop. Great crowd with live band...very loud band :) Right about now Sean should be back on the ferry from Milwaukee back to MI. Thanks Sean for getting GZ over to WI. Dennis...safe travels with GZ!!!

Thanks all  for a fun day!   Had a brisk ride down with Trevor and Johnnie (isn't it supposed to be summer here?), met Tews and Sean, had a close up look at Dennis's  salt bike, ate lunch with GZ, and heard what 6 750's sound like going down the road at once. 8)

Sign me up for next year ;D ;D ;D

Happy to see that something is getting planned for next summer.  I was pretty bummed to have missed the ride this year.  I don'care so much about the lizard, but I really enjoyed riding with you guys in '13.  It'd be fun to get out for a longer ride.
