Mission accomplished. On Saturday, April 3rd with the forecast projecting clear skies, sunny and 70F, we met at Starks Corner for a 12pm departure to wind our way north of the Cheddar Curtain for lunch
Destination was the Shades Bar & Grill in Orfordville, WI, just a few miles east of Broadhead, home of the world famous cinnamon rolls. Lead by Frank and Candi we meandered the +/- 100 miles on lazy 2-lane rural roads avoiding just about all towns and villages. A very enjoyable ride on a beautiful day.
The Shades was a perfect choice. Just a small town neighborhood bar. Friendly folks. Great sandwiches. Good service. My meatball sandwich, accompanied by a cold bottle of Fat Squirrel, by New Glarus, hit the spot. The sandwich was excellent, by the way.
The ride home was uneventful. The Harley’s needed gas which gave us a welcomed 10 minute break before the final push home, bidding farewell to my companions in Marengo for last 30 miles.
Sure beats yard work.
