720 mile weekend (SE Wisconsin)

Pardon the lack of effort....

Here are some pics from my latest wekend ride. I towed my 63yo father along on his GL1800 through about 450 miles of the prettiest roads WI has to offer. As is typical of a "god-sent" weekend....the pics don't do it justice.

Nice shots.
What was your route?
Did you take a pic of your dad using the "facilities" in that last shot!?

Nahhh. That's Dad just marveling at the beauty that is Wi farmland somewhere off of Hwy14 west of Richland Center.

I attached a map which roughly outlines the route. I have a TomTom ITn file of the actual if anyone is interested.

Silos, barns, beautiful country roads, rock formations that is a beautiful ride through God's country right there!

Would be fun to do a road trip up your way sometime, haven't been anywhere in Wisconsin except Milwaukee since I was a kid.

Lack of effort on miles maybe. Feh! 720 miles? We thought you were going to be some kind of superbiker. what a letdown.

Just say when.

My wife is out of the country all summer so my schedule is open. I'd love to share some of my recent routes.

Actually, I'm quite proud of my old pops. He does alright until he gets stiff.
