My Maxi-Scooter Riding Group met just North of the Twin Cities and
rode North to circle Lake Mille Lacs (large 100 mile diameter lake in
North Central Minnesota - big vacation fishing lake).

The rain has been plentiful up North making the sweeping country roads
lush and green with forests and fields of corn and soy beans. We circled
the Lake and stopped for a super buffet at the Local Naive Ameican
Casino (Grand Casino Mille Lacs). So, if the fish are not biting,the
local cabin people and tourists hit the Casino. Traffic was lite, mostly
cars towing fishing boats. The local dialect is classic "Fargo Scandinavian"
Yah Sure - Yah know, we were up Nord at the lakes, you betcha.

Me and my trusty Burgman 400 for long rides. Total miles for the day 324. I am wearing my scooter rally t-shirt from last week.

One Eyed Dog
One of the great riders in our group is Jim Reynolds. He lost one of his
Sun Glass lens on the way to the kick of location. Never wanting to waste
anything, Jim still wore the sun glasses. We bestowed the moniker of
"One Eyed Dog" on him.
