    BOW was Badger Ordinance works located about 8 miles south of Baraboo. You might not have won an argument with these guys. I heard they took security pretty seriously.

    With temps in the upper 70's and fall color in full Riot mode, Allison and I hit the country roads for several hours. A great day to be alive.

    Don't count on them running out of powder at least.

    You're living the life there Gary! Thanks for the beautiful photos. I went out and clipped off about 90 miles today, but everything here still just looks burnt from our extraordinarily long and hot summer. We are expecting a hot , dry winter too, I usually manage to go out and find spring wildflowers, but I’m not holding out hope for next spring. :unsure:

    But thanks! Wood stave silos are rare now, 100 plus years is a long time for wood outdoors in this climate. They often were made of redwood. We had a redwood deck and rails built about 1970, had to scrap it, rotted.

    Speaking of bugs.
    We've had a bumper crop of "Snout nose butterflys".

    Billions and billions of them last week.
    No escape, everybody was getting creamed with those things.

    Went to the Two Wheels of Suches Rally yesterday. I trailered because I like showing off my H1 and since I brought the XS650 last time I brought my GPz too.
    Pretty good turnout with more than a few XS650s and three or four RD350 ring-a-dings and lots of good people. Had a great time.

    Bring it! In 2021 there will be a wonderful vintage motorcycle show in Vicksburg. I attended 2019. It happens first weekend in November. We can make an XS650 rally of it!

    "I happened to be driving thru Ricelake on this day and I believe this is the guy that biffed it on the exit ramp and was pointed the wrong way up the ramp.
    There was another guy on a BMW that was doing 2 miles an hour on 53 just leaving RiceLake dragging his feet!! There Nuts [​IMG]"

    You plan early. Take a few days. Bring your wife. Stay in an Antebellum mansion B&B. You do stuff. She does stuff. Win, win.
