Wisconsin Rustic Roads

Introduction

I'm exploring my new home state of Wisconsin by riding my motorcycle down its Rustic Roads. This page tracks my progress with links to videos that my onboard cameras recorded along each road. Below you'll find that data organized both by map and by table. More information about things like equipment is farther down the page.

If this is your first time here, you may like to read and/or watch the introductory post and video.

Frequently Asked Questions

What motorcycle are you riding?

I ride a 2011 Suzuki DL650A V-Strom, rolling on Metzler Tourance Next tires.

Why do you ride so fast/slow?

Thanks for checking this answer instead of commenting about it. I ride a speed appropriate for the situation. It's approximately the posted speed limit, adjusted to account for hazards, road feel, etc. If it looks off to you, it may be due to the camera, which is mounted at a different height and has a different field of view than you do on any bike or in any car. Consider adusting the playback speed to find a pace you like.

What cameras are you using?

All video is shot using an INNOV K1 dual-camera system. Stills were taken with various iPhones.

When was Season 1 recorded?

Season 1 was recorded between May and November 2022.

Comment Policy

You'll notice that comments don't exist on this blog. That's because none of the spam filters seem to work, and all discussion has gravitated to social networks these days.

YouTube, however, does allow comments on videos. All I can say is, please don't make me go searching for the switch to disable them. I'm not interested in your opinion of my riding speed, style, etc. Rude comments about it are likely to be removed. Harrassment, doxxing, hate speech, spam, etc. will be reported, then removed. These videos are about enjoying the exploration of a geographical area on a fun mode of transport. Keep the vibe positive, please.
