Southern Wisconsin Saturday Ride..

A few friends and I tend to get together at least 1-2 times every month in the summer for a weekend breakfast ride. We've all been busy this summer, so this weekend we finally got out on Saturday for a KLR run.. Unfortunately, my one friend/co-worker with a red KLR didn't make it, or we would have hand a full fledged gang and all different colors, too..

We stopped in at the historic M&M in Monticello, WI. It's a small cafe that closes mid afternoon. Great breakfast (BACON) and a neat, old time atmosphere.



We then wandered northwest with no real destination. I then remembered an old grind mill just north of Hyde, Wisconsin and we were off.

It's a neat old place that's been set up to show off the old equipment.

Here's the actual mill and waterwheel. To preserve it, it's now a no tresspasing area to keep it from getting damaged and to keep people from getting hurt in it.



They have a bunch of old grind stones lined up on display. Good BSin' spot.



If only for the red bike to have made it along..



A closer look at one of the grind stones..



And something to instill a bit of knowledge..



I've known about this spot for years. It's a neat spot with zero traffic to stop and reflect.. One of these days I'll remember to bring my fishing pole as it's also a trout stream..

Looks like you guys had a nice day.

I love the small out-of-the-way places like that.

Nice ride Paper, I am going to do a bit of that today. Weather is going to be in the mid 80's, so I am going to take a ride up past Sandpoint, Id. where my 2 boys are working, remodeling a resort on Lake Pend Oreille (Pond Oray). Have lunch with them, then up towards the canadian border, back across into Washington and home, about 350 miles.

The shortest distance between two points is a damn shame.......

I rode Broke Back mountain, and my a$$ is killing me.....
