Crud Run Fall October 2017

The morning dawned with bright sunshine but on the cool side...44' degrees at Cedarburg near the lake but as I headed west the snowflake icon appears on the temperature gauge with a 33' degree reading. " Electrics....don't leave home without them".

Arriving at Hardee's quite a few bikes had already assembled as the location is a popular jumping off spot for the Crud Runs. By 8:30 our group formed up and included the following...Dennis Pipkorn, "Jimmy G", Jim Fuhrmann, Bill Ahlborn, John Wasilczuk, Tim Koester, Mike McArthey, Ron Feuer, Tate Wilson, Stewart Hamel, Chris Cramer, Ritche Miller, Rick Hemenway, Marcel Riebe, and a couple of added starters who will remain anonymous.

We start out on the expressway to Hwy. F just west of Oconomowoc. This stretch gets everyone out of the parking lot and gives everybody a chance to form in to a riding position. Then we hit the back roads...Hwy. F to...Hwy. B to...Hwy. A to...Hwy. 92 to...Townhall Road to... Hwy. S to Pine Bluff. We did encounter two detours on A and about six miles of gravel were the surface was ground up for repaving....This did bring a few smiles to those aboard the GS's and gripes to those in the back eating the dust.

You couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day as the town was wall to wall with two wheeled vehicles...a rolling display of vintage and classic bikes and many of the restorations were show class. I must say every year this event seems to get someone said its like " Disneyland for gearheads".

At 11:15 we regrouped in search of curvy roads on the way to Leland. The roads west of Pine Bluff up and across the Wisconsin River are great for that. We did pickup Bob Reitberger on this leg as he and Ernie Grill had attended the Madison clubs monthly breakfast meeting earlier in the morning.

Leland.. a small town with four or five houses and a couple of taverns becomes the "utopia" of motorcycling for the afternoon. Bikes are lined up in every direction as far as you can see....the two taverns were having there best day of the year and the local sportsman's club does a nice job selling brats with all the trimmings (sour kraut) and tasty pork sandwich's.

By 2:00 o'clock had kicked enough tires and see it all..time to hit the road. There was no organized ride back and no performance awards to my knowledge.

Next Crud Run 1st Sunday in May...excellent back roads...interesting people....and of course the "Iron"

See ya there
