For anyone that is in the Midwest of the United States, on May 5th, that a Sunday, if the weather is good, or even just OK, there will be about 3,000 motorcyclists showing up in the Madison Wisconsin area. The Slimey Crud ride has been going on about, well just about forever. It started 30 years ago?, and has been the start of the riding season in the Midwest ever since. Being the Milwaukee area, you would think it's all Harley's, but it is not. It has a great mix of vintage, sport, sport turing, HD, just about everything else. If anyone is interested, check out slimey crud.com for all the info. What the web site won't tell you, is that there are always bike movies, etc, the night before in Madison. It's quite a deal, not to be missed.
There is never any trouble, and unless you are an idiot, the law will leave you alone.
