Twistar Wrap Up and Updated Events

Twistar 2.0 LaCrosse:

This past weekend Driftless Road Adventures teamed up with the Motorcycle Sport Touring Association (MSTA) and Lone Wolf Productions (Creator of the Trans-Wisconsin Adventure Trail) to host Twistar 2.0.  This was a throwback to the once annual event.
Over 20 riders attended this “just for fun” event and the weather and the roads were amazing.  Following are some highlights of the weekend:

August 7th Events Update

Last weekend we were invited to ride the Wisconsin Triangle Route with the Dainese Chicago Motocamping group.  The weather was perfect and everyone had a blast riding the back roads of Southwest Wisconsin.  The views, as always, were spectacular and lunch at Vicki’s in Muscoda was a big hit.  I think that many of the group will be returning to ride (and eat) again soon!  Our thanks to Michele and the Dainese Chicago team for including us.

The MSTA Twistar event will have something for everyone!  Tons of gorgeous paved roads, PLUS dual sport rides led by Chad Berger, creator of the Trans-Wisconsin Adventure Trail.  We hope to see you there!
