Hello everyone! Looking back at the last month, it seems like everyone has been very busy, but still getting some riding time. That included the Lacrosse Ride-In for several of our members. Everyone had a great time at the Ride-in. Our thanks go out to Don & Cheri Walloch for putting together such a great event. It was a great opportunity to mingle and visit with so many wonderful people!

We are all eagerly awaiting next year’s Ride-In. It will be in Hannibal, MO from August 13-16 at the Quality Inn and Suites. Several of us have already reserved our rooms. I urge you to not delay in calling if you think you are going.

The District Ride-In Picnic was Saturday, August 24th in Westfield, WI. A group of 5 Chapter H motorcycles with a total of 7 people rode together to the event. We did meet up with a group of 11 motorcycles in Pardeeville before continuing on to the event. Our group had all of the safety gear and rode a total of around 62 miles to the final destination. We did meet up with another 5 members at the event. A lunch of brats & hot dogs was served from 11:30 – 1:30 pm. There were fun games and the 50/50 raffle. Fun was had by all even the ones that had to eat and run!

Wing Ding is coming up and a few of us will be going. Can’t wait to participate this year. Its the first time we are able to go in several years. It should be an awesome time! We are very proud to be going to represent Wisconsin as the District Couple of the Year!

Sept. 20-21 is the last of the local district rallys. It is the Iowa Rally in Oelwein, IA and Tina and I will be attending, so let us know if you are interested in riding over together.

As much as I hate to mention this, it is time to start thinking about cooler temperature riding. By the end of September, the low temps are in the 40’s, so please plan accordingly

Wing Riding Wisconsin We managed to have 4 bikes from our chapter included in a guided ride of 8 motorcycles from Lacrosse, WI to Minnesota. All were wearing safety gear and the route was several hours meaning it was well over 50 miles.

We then had one of chapter members lead the ride from Lacrosse to Rockton for the Chicken ride. There were 3 bikes with a total of 6 people, who were all wearing safety gear. It was definitely over a 50 mile ride. Then we joined the group for the ride home making for a total of 4 bikes and 8 people.

Remember to report any 50 mile ride with 3 vehicles (must have at least 1 bike/trike) to us so we can include the info. in the newsletter. Thank you!
