Wisconsin Riders

Weather is looking up. This weekend isn't too great, but it looks like low chance of rain Saturday and high 40s. If anyone wants to hook up for a ride around the southern Kettle Morraine area, post up or PM me.

I have a nice route up and around Holy Hill area I like to go on.

If not this weekend, maybe next weekend.

What an awesome day! My normal 1 hour commute was more like 2.5 hours on the way home, and it wasn't because i was riding slow. Beautiful day, great ride. Roads aren't too bad. Saturday is looking up with 50 degrees and low chance of precip.

It was an awesome day. Drove down to Corse Superbikes and picked up the rg3 and eprom. I couldn't drive home fast enough. Only to discover light rain in green bay.
I'll be busy with the installation on saturday, otherwise I'd love to go riding some day. I can't imagine how cool it would be riding with other mv s'

I've got my kids this weekend, but if you're organizing a ride, let me know. There are a couple of other FIB's that might be interested too.

For some reason my commute home has gone from 30 minutes to well over an hour. must be that seasonal traffic change.....or maybe it's finally nice enough to ride!

Cool! My wheels and F4 frame are there. I need to go pick them up today at lunch. And yes, MV Italian, I'll ask Sam about the 910R.

Yeah, let's ride sometime!

Slimey Crud Run is coming up in a couple weeks. I'll start a post about it.

I saw the wheels. Forged aluminum? I got some slobber on them. Sorry I also asked about the 910r. The sales guy (not Sam) told me they could get one in if they received the deposit within a week. I actually had to think about it for a moment.

Yep, my silver Marchesinis. Ah shit, maybe I shouldn't talk to Sam.

That would be great! We should definitely organize some rides this season! I live in a little burb called North Prairie which is right on the border of the southern Kettle Morraine unit. I see lots of FIBs up here. I'm always up for a ride, so if you're ever in the area e-mail me.

Right now the forecast looks okay for Saturday. A little rain Friday night but hopefully the roads would be dry by late morning Saturday. The high is forecated at only 49 though. Not sure if that's too cold for some, but it's fine by me. If anyone wants to hook up around noon in southern Wisconsin and ride for a few hours, let me know.

Jack
