The view from the road. Took to the 2 lane highways on the new Beemer over the 4th. Headed north out of Minneapolis and rode along the east shore of Lake Mille Lacs on highway #47.
Stopped at a gas - food stop on the north-east corner Mille Lacs. Broaster Chicken was recommended for a quick lunch, add a Monster energy drink and I was ready for the road again. Stayed on #47 and rode through Aitkin. Hooked onto #169 heading north to a small county road that headed straight west 40 miles to the cabin. About 5 hours on the road this day, taking the long way to the cabin, yeah.
The best part of a 1200cc dirt bike is that I can explore the woods close-up. These tires are marginal on the damp forest road, so picking a good line is important. The knobbies would be a good choice on a ride like this. It's all good!
Arriving at the cabin...park the motorcycle and hit the water and a cold beer...Good Times!
It was a good 4th of July week.
The BMW patiently waiting for the trip home...
