From the Assistant Directors:

As briefly noted above I have a route planned to and from the Madison area to Springfield.  The route down follows parts of the Mississippi River and the route back is on the interstate(s) that follow route 66.  I will have to leave St Louis early to make a 4:30 appt in Madison though.  If you’re interested, please let me know so I have some idea of headcount.  You will be responsible for your own lodging for the overnight stays to and from Springfield in Hannibal   MO on the way down and St Louis MO on the way back.  We will be leaving on Sunday June 26th from the Madison area and leaving to return Sunday July 4th

Chapter H rides- Wing Riding Wisconsin

What do Goldwings and Brats have in common?

Any GWRRA member will tell you we love to eat brats and we love to ride to brat fries. Chapter H has had a chance to meet both in the last few weeks. A brat fry and a ride to 3 Chapter events. Could there be anything better?

  • On April 24th Chapter H traveled to Chapter Q’s brat fry in Wausau. We had 3 bikes and one car with 7 Chapter H members all wearing proper safety gear brave the rain and cold. We had fun enjoying the cranberry bogs and ginseng fields as we traveled through several of our northern counties. Not the best of rides but good brats and fun with Chapter Q.

Thanks to Bruce Gebhard for leading us through many roads that my husband John Scott had never been on even though he had lived in Marathon and Portage Counties.

  • Our return ride on April 24th we had 3 bikes and 1 car all wearing proper safety gear that enjoyed a more direct route home.
  •  On April 29th we had an evening ride. There were 4 bikes with 7 Chapter H members all wearing proper safety gear.   We rode from Madison to Fort Atkinson, to Lake Mills, and Cottage Grove.  We ended at Culvers on the East Side of Madison enjoying a little evening snack.    
  • On May 1 we had 4 bikes and 1 car with 9 Chapter H members all wearing proper safety gear travel to Chapter E brat fry in Randolph for our breakfast brat. True breakfast of champions is a brat and sauerkraut. Yum.  From Randolph we traveled to Chapter C in Fond du Lac for our lunch brat.
  • Our return ride on May 1st we had 3 bikes and 1 car (7 Chapter H members) all wearing proper safety gear.  It was a great ride that included a trip around the east side of Lake Winnebago before heading back to Madison,  Special thanks to John Scott for planning a ride also with many back roads including a windy trip through the Horicon Marsh.

Chapter E was wondering if I would rate the best brat and so did Chapter C. I did joke that my decision could be swayed with a free brat. Neither Chapter E or Chapter C took up my offer, so I have no opinion as to which brat was better.

I guess the decision was that there is no bad brat fry if sponsored by a GWRRA Chapter. Thank you to Chapters, Q, E and C for feeding us. We enjoyed the ride, the food and seeing other GWRRA members.

  • May 14th while at Dust Off, Chapter H had 3 bikes and 1 car with 6 members all wearing proper safety gear enjoy a ride up and around Lake Winnebago.  It was some fabulous back roads with nice curves and turns. 

So grateful that 2021 is starting off better than 2020.

Denise Scott
