Summer 2011

After I toured the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, my next destination was Soldiers Grove, Wisconsin, where I attended a weekend rally for members of the Concours Owners Group. They had obtained permission from the town to set up camp in the town park. However, a nearby road construction zone caused a major detour directly along one side of the park, resulting in significant noise, especially from heavy trucks. I opted to take a room in a motel in town, where I could also have electricity and access to the Internet.

I regret very much not taking many pictures during my visit to Wisconsin.

Here are maps of my routes around Wisconsin along with a few photos:

1. Escanaba, MI to Soldiers Grove, WI (July 8, 2011)

One rider in the Concours group needed to replace his rear tire. He and several of us visited another member’s home to use his hoist and tire changer.

5. Ladysmith, WI to Duluth, MN (July 12, 2011)

Since Duluth, MN was not far away, I rode there to see more of northern Wisconsin and to visit the Aerostich store in Duluth

6. Wisconsin to South Dakota (July 17, 2011)

My travelogue report for this segment of my journey can be read here.
