Mpls Area Ride

I took the day off to ride due to the nice weather. I have a nice route planned in southern MN, that could originate from Hastings.

I know it's short notice, but anyone care to join me?

Damn.

Here the route from today.

Southern MN Route

I've ridden variation of this throughout the summer. I tried a couple of new roads today that turned out to be nice additions.

Great day for riding! Southern MN colors are about at peak. And what better to travel on than a V-Strom. I put on 250 miles today and got 56 mpg; and rolled past 5,000 miles for the season so far. I have to say that buying this bike was a GREAT decision.

It was a great day for a ride...


I have done routes similar to yours many times this summer.

It sounds like we are having similar experiences after becoming V strom owners...

I am located just by you too.

That's a nice route. I love hwy 60 from Zumbro to Wabasha. I usually stop by Spring Creek to watch the MX guys too. Sorry I missed this. Maybe next time.

I'll try to post up future rides with plenty of notice.

With work lately, that wasn't an option.
