PostSubject: Slimey Crud Run Wisconsin 2010 May 3rd   Mon May 03, 2010 1:47 pm

Hi All, I did the Slimey Crud Run from Pine Bluff Wisconsin to Leland Wisconsin. It is about 48 miles between the two towns as the crow flys, but taking the back roads makes the ride about 75 miles. I put a total of 133 miles on my SW for the day. Great weather about 70 degrees and sunny it was just a perfect day. About 1000 to 1500 motorcyclist showed up most every bike you can think of was there. BMW, Yamaha, Ducati, Kawasaki, Triumph, Harley Davidson, etc.. and few I did not know what make they were starting from the early 50's to present day. You could just find a place to sit and watch all the motorcycles coming into the rally and that would have been a great time. It was just an unbelievable rally you just had to be a part of to understand what it was all about. One thing for sure it was like a motorcycle museum. This rally was not designed for scooters, but there were three scooters that show up and that included me. I rode with a group of 7 and they all had cafe style motorcycles and two Harley Davidsons I keep up with them just fine, but My Silver wing is just not designed for taking tight corners at 75 miles and hour. So I would have enjoyed the ride even more if I would have road with other scooters and keep it about 60 to 65 miles per hour. This is a hint to invite more scooters to the rally. I talked with folks from Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, and Minnesota, but I am sure many more folks from other different states were there. This rally does not advertise or have any sponsorship and they do not have and official web site it is just word of mouth. I had a great time and hope more scooters will come to the next Slimey Crud Run. I do have photos of the run but don't know how to attach them to this post? If you want to see more just type in your search engine slimey crud run wisconsin and you will find youtube vids and un-official web site.

After I changed to the Hyperpro front springs ... the SWing handling improved in the corners. I wonder if this would help you with "tight corners at 75 MPH"

Hi Honda_silver, Thanks for the info on changing the front forksprings, but I am really happy with the way my SW handles. I don't really like driving a car at 75 mph. This was a one time thing doing the complete run from Pine bliff to Leland, next rally I am going to get there early and just sit on the side of the road in Leland, and take photos of all the groups and different style bikes as they are coming in.
