We took the first real ride in my wifes life. Last week on Thurs. I called and asked her to have her mom whatch the kids and started packing the s-wing. She asked why I had her mom whatch the kids and I told her to just wait there at her moms. lol. She had no clue.
Much to my happiness she jumped on, I don't think she understood when I said we were going for a longer ride I meant going from chicago to galena and down to peirre marquette state park in Ill. First ride this year and first for my wife.. EVER. Icon_lol . She thought something like going to starved rock.
needless to say she was excited and willing to go, not that I was turning back lmao First ride this year and first for my wife.. EVER. Icon_lol
We spent three days and only two nights, but clocked around 1200 miles. I will try putting up pics. there were some nice roads, I typically take at minimum 2 passes down the Great River Road. anyone who has I highly recomend you do. It is a long winding trip but worth every mile. I have only been on the top half so far, and this was my first on the S-wing, I did more on my aprilia. The peple along the way a nice the towns old and small, and the road is fun. From Minn. to the bottom of Ill. at least lol

That is all. lol

Took the river road from St. Louis, MO to Keokuk, IA back in 1983 in a brand new Chevrolet Celebrity - wow the bad memories. Not of the route, but that car was an anchor.

The River Road is an amazing route, truly one of the US great rides. We've ridden a good bit of it from just south of Stillwater, MN to St. Louis, MO. We want to finish the rest of it.

Glad your wife was a good sport about the whole deal.

My wife figured it out around 7:30am, Sat. morning. I had made coffee over the fire and offered some banana nut bread we bought from a bread shop the day before. lol She asked why I started to pick up the tent and campsite. First ride this year and first for my wife.. EVER. Confused

She was ok with all of it except the cyotes outside the tent. First ride this year and first for my wife.. EVER. Affraid I just laughed and through a rock at them to shoo them away. First ride this year and first for my wife.. EVER. Icon_lol
