The 2017 Plan

Here it is, The Plan for Riding Season 2017.

No advance tickets purchased yet but that's going to change as of this weekend....emails, Real Mail and a bit of PayPal should lock most everything in that's lockable.  My only reluctance for going ahead full steam this year is that I'm hoping to mix a couple of other extended (longer than my typical 3-day weekend) trips in and one or both of them just may have to trump a rally weekend.  You can bet that I'll do my best to squeeze The Full Plan in if at all possible.  It will help that the rally weekends are biased toward the beginning of the season which leaves prime travel time, later in the summer or early fall for the bigger trips.  At least that's what I've been telling myself these last few years.

We'll see how full I can pack it!

May 5-7    Slimey Crud (weekend version)

May 19-21        Madison BMW Great River Road Rally - Soldier's Grove, Wisconsin

 June 2-4           Hiawatha BMW Club (MN BMW Club)  - Money Creek, Minnesota (75 short miles away)

Aug 4-6             Wisconsin Moto Guzzi Rally - Lake Joy Campground (Belmont, WI)

There just has to be additional long weekend in there somewhere for the Wisconsin Adventure Trail, plus a nice long week out West somewhere, hopefully making excellent use of this......
