New Set of Wheels

A brand new set of four to be precise...

My wife and I traded in our 2002 Honda CR-V to get a brand new 2012 Subaru Outback.  It's awesome.  I really love it.  Last weekend was beautiful and the fall colors were peaking so both Saturday and Sunday we headed out to some of my favorite motorcycle roads to break the Outback in properly.

On Saturday we headed northeast to Taylors Falls and on Sunday we headed southeast to Maiden Rock and Welch.  The Subaru corners so much better than the Honda ever did.  We also hit three different Rustic Roads along the way (101, 103, & 51).

Rustic Road 103:

Maiden Rock, WI:

Rustic Road 51.  This one had 4 or 5 shallow water crossings.

Who would be crazy enough to take a brand new car down twisting, turning, filthy, dusty, muddy, dirty, and gravely roads through the woods and even cross a few streams? Apparently me, but I've done all those same roads on my motorcycles (except the water-crossing part - I'm not completely nuts).
