Join the Upper North Central Coggers on our annual Spring Ride and explore some of the better motorcycle roads in the area while taking in the sights, sounds and scents of spring. We will meet at 8:00 in Stillwater for breakfast at the Perkins Restaurant at the northeast corner of HWY 36 and Washington, ride leaves at 9:00.

I'm in the neighborhood, but currently have other plans for that day. I gotta see what I can do to change them.

I could use a good run on them thar decent roads.

Brian Mac mentioned the Mezzepa bar burned down. I believe we were considering other lunch options anyway.

Gotta couple new twists and turns added to the route this year and I’m looking at Wiskeydicks in Millville, MN. for the lunch break. The establishment is owned by a young couple with one of their names being Dick, located on the Zumbro River and curvy 11 and near a couple moto cross courses the place is used to seeing two wheeled riff raff like our selves.
And it appears that there probably will be some snow on the ground, hopefully not coming from the sky but with this freaky spring you never know.

Sounds like great way to kick off the season....

Here is the route in GPX format.

I take no responsibility for errors, omissions, my typical screw ups :)

It was a great ride. Thanks to Randy for putting it together. Perfect weather and the lunch stop was excellent. We need to keep that on the list for next year.

Not sure how I made it home on that cheap OEM rear tire. There was nothing left when I changed it out today. Very soft in the middle. I think I wore off the wear bars. So much for Bridgetone BT-023's. Buy PR4s.

Steve, I'm still on for doing your tires on Saturday. I tested out the NoMar today. Not a lot easier, but I got the job done. I'm sure it will get better with each use.

Great. I have just a hint of wear bar left, also on a BT023.

On TDY near Bemidji MN.
