Minnesota Riders

Try going north out of Duluth up 61 to hwy 1 and take hwy 1 to Ely. This is a fun ride with some nice twisties. Ely is a cool place to stop and eat. You can go back the way you came or take hwy 1 to hwy 2 which will take you to two harbors. Hwy 2 isn't that exciting but I rarely see any law enforcement. You can also take off from Ely in other directions for longer rides.
Duluth is about a two hour obey the speed limit drive in a cage.

I heard, via the radio on the way to work, about a month ago, that the MN DOT has let Hwy 1 fall apart the last few years. As a result, they are going to perform a DOT 'improvement.' Especially on the 'most trecherous' 15-20 miles. I would assume that, as a result, they will have ruined, arguably, the best motorcycle road in the state. The 'operation' is to be performed during the summer of '05. I've gotta get up there again. Maybe twice.
