I was thinking of going to Rt. 66 that night. I really don't want to ride my bike to Wisconsin lowered. Interested in doing 66 instead?

If the Tiller is done by then, we'll go. Otherwise, we'll be there with our Harleys on the 13th.

You can get A LOT more runs in at GLD than Route 66, pretty much a 3:1 ratio in favor of Cheeseland where you might only get 3 passes at Route 66. Do the math.

I was at 66 a few weeks ago. I got 8 passes and left at 8:30. It wasn't too bad. If a group is going to trailer bikes to GLD I have nothing against the track, just a long ride and I've had bike problems while there. How about a group ride? Maybe there's safety in numbers.
