Brian Mac mentioned the Mezzepa bar burned down. I believe we were considering other lunch options anyway.

Gotta couple new twists and turns added to the route this year and I’m looking at Wiskeydicks in Millville, MN. for the lunch break. The establishment is owned by a young couple with one of their names being Dick, located on the Zumbro River and curvy 11 and near a couple moto cross courses the place is used to seeing two wheeled riff raff like our selves.
And it appears that there probably will be some snow on the ground, hopefully not coming from the sky but with this freaky spring you never know.

Here is the route in GPX format.

I take no responsibility for errors, omissions, my typical screw ups :)

And for those who prefer paper, attached is a turn by turn route sheet.

Jeff's disclaimer applies to mine as well...

It was a great ride. Thanks to Randy for putting it together. Perfect weather and the lunch stop was excellent. We need to keep that on the list for next year.

Not sure how I made it home on that cheap OEM rear tire. There was nothing left when I changed it out today. Very soft in the middle. I think I wore off the wear bars. So much for Bridgetone BT-023's. Buy PR4s.

Steve, I'm still on for doing your tires on Saturday. I tested out the NoMar today. Not a lot easier, but I got the job done. I'm sure it will get better with each use.

Great. I have just a hint of wear bar left, also on a BT023.

On TDY near Bemidji MN.
