Good for you! I see it's still a tad chilly there too.
First day of Spring ride for me today on The Queen....my F6B. It wasn't pretty, but it felt **** good. 50, windy, and I couldn't go out until after work, 4:30. Tomorrow again, should be nicer at mid 50's and less wind. Have to wait until Saturday for the next ride. We have snow on the sides of the road still here too. Sand and salt are pretty much off in the gutters. Gotta grab it while we can, right?

When in doubt power out , saved my butt here . Sugar sand , very wet , and froze yet in spots . Not KLR friendly .
As I was putting camera away I notice these big tracks !! Are those big kitty tracks ? Sure look like it to me . Pretty fresh as my footprints looked the same wetness .
Anyways 187 miles , spot tracker was acting up but got it fixed as battery terminals were corroded a bit . Mostly dirt roads , logging roads , a few places I should not have been , one guys driveway , and a powerhouse I have never been to before just north of black river falls on the black river.
All in all a great first day of spring .

Looks like a fun ride. We are still waiting for that last 3 feet of crap to melt off...

It always comes back to food for you, doesn't it?

Just guessing I would say lynx or large bobcat. I don't think they have lynx in that area, but who knows.
