Wow, Randall, you've outdone yourself! I know this route well and it is the best riding in the state. I guarantee everyone who rides will enjoy the countryside and twisty roads with a smile.

Mark me down as attending, and I may be able to join the pre-ride as well. I'll Signal you once I know about this Saturday.

Been a long time, since I have logged in. Nothing to say, until Randall‘s email came to my inbox. As I am now retired, I should have time to join a ride now and then. It IS an awesome route. I’ve got a gl650 that might make that run (I moved even closer to Duluth, so I’m even farther away), but maybe I’ll give the pacific coast some exercise. It will be a walk in the park for that. 9am-pine island will be a 6-7am start. And return home around 9-ish. Fingers crossed. If things don’t change, I would be honored to be able to join you.

I am looking forward to this! Can't make the pre-ride. Too bad. Would love to do it twice. I expect to bring along another Gold Winger and former owner of a certain Silver-Wing. Haven't heard back yet from a third.
