Brainerd to International Falls Ride this Weekend

I am planning to ride the “proposed” Trans-Minnesota Adventure Trail (TMAT)routes  this weekend in the area north of Brainerd and Southwest of International Falls.  I am trailering to just south of Brainerd Friday Night, camping there, then riding all day Saturday, camping again (somewhere) on Saturday night and then loading back up Sunday morning.  If anyone wants to join the exploration of the new routes for the TMAT feel free to post in the comments.  Otherwise, enjoy the warm weather….finally!

UPDATE! = With the new forecast showing a low of 26 degrees and a 50-70% chance of snow Saturday I think old man winter had not left the northwoods yet. Ride is cancelled!

    I am not sure it is going to be that warm this weekend. I see the high on Friday and Saturday is only 44 with snow possible on Saturday. But I would join you if you want to meet for dinner or a visit at your campsite on Friday night. Staying at Crow Wing Campground just off of Hwy 371?

    And depending upon how far done I get with my taxes, I might join you for part of the ride on Saturday, but would have to return to home base Saturday afternoon.

    Are you the Dennis O. Johnson who is looking for a sidecarist from the Mason City, IA area? I can’t help you with that search, but I have an ’81 GL1100 with Motorvation Formula II sidecar and would be interested in knowing your source of chrome parts for the ends of the bumpers on the sidecar.

    I’m Don Banwart, treasurer for United Sidecar Association, and I live near West Bend, IA. My email address is
