Thank you, Dave, for working around my busy scooting schedule.

I plan to come.

I hope Sam can join me, but I will probably come anyway.

Linda and I are working our plans out, it seems you picked a weekend that will work great for us. We would like to join you again this year. Hopefully I wont blow a drive belt and can do the Saturday ride instead of following in the pickup truck. I need to get out on my scooter more this year, Since I bought the motorcycle I hardly ever ride the scooter. The Wisconscoot we attended two years ago was a great time, and we have been looking forward to being able to do another.

Good to have you back. Yeah, that wasn't a great year....nice to have a backup vehicle and all, but plan A is always best.

Age vs bike weight vs ride choice...
Yell, for me at my advancing years I find that the smaller and much more "flickable" machines get ridden more than my heavier bikes. I do have a '53 Zundapp motorcycle which is heavy for me but to keep it I attached a sidecar and life is easier again. Plus my wife wants to ride again in the sidecar after absent from biking for 51 years!!

German, opposed twin, quite similar to BMW of those years. The sidecar keeps me riding a heavier bike. We have several sidecar rigs in our local Antique Club.

Bob Copeland Plus Werner Koehler
Dave,

Again, thanks for all your work planning these great adventures. Last years
routes were spectacular. I have already reserved a room at the hotel for
myself and Werner. As in past Wisconscoot events, Werner and I will be
coming in Thursday night.

Aww thanks! You can still come, you know, but it's a bit of a trip for 3 days...

SW Wisconsin a Two Wheeled Paradise
Gussy,

Dave has scheduled most of the annual Wisconscoot Rides in SW Wisconsin
because the area is beautiful. Reminds me of Austrian valleys without the mountains.

Short Story: The glaciers that flattened most of the Upper Midwest in the USA (made great farm land) missed SW Wisconsin. The area is called the Driftless Region. Essentially, a million years of heavy snow melt off carved out one towering bluff and green valley after another.

Current Times: Most all of the roads that twist around these valley and bluff formations are paved due to the strong Dairy Industry that dominated the State of Wisconsin. Hey, gotta have trucks on good roads to pick up all the milk to make cheese. Wisconsin residents are called cheese heads.

Result: Heaven for motorcycle and scooter riders.

That is the geological report for today,

Bob Copeland
