Well the fall run is soon, Sunday October 1, 2006

This will be my third SCR and I am looking foward to it.

:cool: So who plan's on going??????

For those who have not ventured out to this event I present the following....

The Slimey Crud is a bi-annual gathering of motorcycles. All types are represented, (of people and machines) including many very old bikes.

http://www.slimeycrudrun.com/
Where: Pine Bluff, WI - 10AM (Peak time of total people in attendance)
Ride To: Leland, WI - 1PM (Peak time of total people in attendance)
Ride Back to: Pine Bluff, WI
Route: Make up your own!
Area Maps: Pine Bluff, WI | Leland, WI | Combined Map

There have been hundreds of bikes both of the time I have attended, maybe over 1000.

The run itself is not an organized parade, there is no preplanned route, or take off time. There are only two places to cross the river, but many county roads that wind between the the two towns. Groups take off and ride at the own pleasure and direction.

If you are into motorcycles and enjoy talking with others who love riding them this is a not to miss event.

There is no cost or registration.

:thumbsup: Pine Bluff


:thumbsup: Leland



:thumbsup: Zoomed out to show both



So I ask again... Who is Going?

Here is a link to the images from the 2006 Spring Run....

Sounds like we'll be around there in the same time...
If the weather looks as it might be, I'll be on the Strom with the Givi shield.. Gonna be chilly in the morning to be riding my KLR, even with the heated vest.

Yes it is a totally different machine in the lower gears and RPMs. The "TRACTOR" feel is gone, replaced by smoothness. HeeHaa....

I will post up my pictures and comment on the day shortly.....

Great Day all around

What a good time this day is the best of everything motorcyle.

The weather could not have been better, even the crisp cold beginning.

A hearty breakfast listening to a Rockie Mountain Adventure, they put on 4300 miles in nine days.

A spirited 2 hr 45 minute ride towards my favorite part of Wisconsin following experienced riders who really know the area.

Putting knew faces to online indentities. Seeing people you only see once or twice a year. Walking amongst motorcyles upon motorcyle upon motorcyle. This event attracts an incredible array of machines.











Add in another spirited ride through the best roads the state has to offer. We wound are way in every direction on the compass. Crossing over the same highways many times. Taking much longer to get to Leland than we needed to, of course I had quitye smile on my face when we got there.

Doing the gawking again there was much more to see at this end.

We ended the group experience with a late lunch at Rookies.

The ride home was mostly expressway, but even that was not too bad.

All said and done.....
12 3/4 hours
404 miles
1 huge sh*t eating grin
3 tanks of gas (32 mph not bad considering the speed and accelleration of the day)

Take a ride with me......


See Ya

Sorry to have missed you as well...

However, you missed us 2 hrs and 10 minutes... :oops:

2) Dilar's Cafe, Rt 12/Rt 31 in Richmond, IL 07:00am for breakfast. Stands up at 08:00 to head to Pine Bluff. (I'll be starting from here)
According to my GPS track log, by 10 we where 75 miles up the road doing 70 mph, on county-A (Oregon Township) About 45 minutes away from Pine Bluff....

:wink: Oh well the weather was great no matter where you ended up riding.

See you next time..
