Dual sport exploring SW Wisc/ NE Iowa/ SE MN
 
Very scenic dual sport adventure in SW Wisc/ NE Iowa. I start my rides at Cabellas in Prairie Du Chien, Wisc. Some of the best riding anywhere in the Midwest! I have spent most of my time on the Mississippi River but just recently I road the Strom in the area. Unbelievable!! Winding roads along huge bluffs, Tall trees, Eagles, Rivers and Streams. Very comparable to riding out west.
Anyone welcome to join me for some on road/off road exploring. Don't forget your camera!

Bring your bike and a jetski (If you own one).

PM me or just call 319-240-2596

Balltown Iowa
 
I've ridden some of the areas in Iowa you describe. Have you ever been to Balltown Iowa? Very nice as well. Nice old german bar and restaurant there. The original burnt down a few years ago but they rebuilt. The restaurant is call Breitbachs. Best home made pies and german food ever!!! If you've never been there ask for Mike the owner and tell him a couple of guys from Michigan sent you. He loves biker business and typically gives you a free piece of homemade pie if its your first visit.

I have to agree, you are describing some of my favorite places to ride.

We may head that way today. Then take the ferry over the Mississippi to Cassville. It is just beautiful up here!!!
Please let me know if anyone is looking for new area to check out. This is it!!

Jeff, what skill level are these roads at. Is this a ride for a thumper or more dirt-oriented ride, or are those of us with big pigs (GS1150) able to ride what you have planned? I'm in the Cities ... my one opportunity to ride the gravel of Vernon County (Viroqua, Westby) left me with a BFSEG on my face and I'd love to do it again!
