On vacation visiting my sister in Crystal Lake Il and attending a reunion here. Drove up to Milwaukee today with the wife (in the rental cage). I forgot how beautiful northern Illinois and the Wisconsin countryside are. Bikes of all kinds on the road, nary a helmet in sight, lots of HDs. Went to the HD museum today and it was great. Took a ton of pics. The wife saw the bikes only No Cages parking sign and said "what is a cage"? I thought I was going to fall over with laughter. Had dinner and a stein of beer at Mader's world famous german restaurant. Saw a signed picture on the wall of Baron Von Raschke, remember the "claw"? Driving back to the hotel stopped at a "Dog n Suds" drive in with real car hops. Only 13 left in the entire country. Great vacation but next summer it's Sturgis - on the bike of course!
