Damn, I hate when that happens. Delete so I can save face. Oh, yea, I'll be there. Unfortunately as a vendor and not a rider. How do I get sucked into these things :(

At least it'll be easy for me to identify you. Trying to meet up with people at these events usually ends up with not connecting.

No deleting... you must live with your mistakes... be one with them.

I'll be there, bringing along about 8 more too. People from New Hudson, Garden City, and not sure where else.

We have a jump off spot at Plymouth and Dixboro, a place called Moonwink's Cafe. Here's a link if anyone wants to go. Meet Up at 10:30.

Had a good time. Met up with Gas, Caveman, Fishman and about 6 other bikes. We hit a short detour at Dexter-Pinkney and McGregor, had to take a short stretch of Darwin road where it's dirt, but it was in good shape.

Future West Loop rides: Good news! Part of North Territorial is being repaved, it's been milled already so should be done pretty quick.

Also got to meet Chopsmitty, Seatmaker and Trainguy. CS had his orange Briggs powered bike there, it was geting a lot of attention. Seatmaker does some great work, had some nice stuff on display.

Here are a few pics, Chris will probably post more. The shot of the parking lot was taken just before we left around 1:30 or so, it was completely full when we got there. We're parked over to the left behind the trailer.

The red kaw belongs to a friend of fishman. Complete Red Wings theme including Stanley the octopus on the rear fender. The guy who painted it does the goalie's helmets for the team.

One last shot. Chris taking a picture of something, his Ultra and my Road King in the background.

After we took the pics, we stood around bragging about how much we paid for our overpriced, obnoxious bikes. :D

Nice pics Tim,

Looks like a fun time, I wanted to come out but my old bones didn't feel like riding 1 1/2 hours just to the meet spot. Hopefully next time. Rode with Fishman and Steve (I believe that was his Red wings bike) last year around the Thumb. Lots of summer left to get more trips planned out!

Wished i coulda made it that way today. Looks like it was a good time and I certainly woulda liked to meet up with all the above. Ended up meeting a old friend down around us23 and michigan ave to catch up a bit. Got back from that around 1:30p and then headed out with another friend to head over to Bakers in Milford. Lots of bikes over there too... not to mention all the bad ass cars. :D

We took 96 back to howell and I almost ate a bird while doing 75mph. Never seen anythign like that before. A quick dip of my shoulder & head dodged the collision... just a blur past my helmet. Don't want to know what coulda happened had it really hit me. :eek:

all in all, put well over 100 miles on the bike today, slightly sunburned, and had a good day in the wind! hope everyone else had a good, safe time! :drag:

Decided to go at the last minute... Trailered the bike most of the way there and ALL the way back! LOL. I've been putting some miles on it this past week and my back/butt are worn thin.
Met Gas Man and a few others..

yep I did the Dexter-Pinckney to McGregor to Darwin (dirt for a bit) run on Saturday.. the dirt part wasn't bad.. one stretch was a bit washboard but its all rideable.. i will go that way again until that bridge is fixed..

We made it, (10 of us) never seen anyone... good time though! HOT! 226 miles round trip, and a fellow DOG broke a clutch cable on the way home! That was interesting! :)

I don't have a clue! We went in looked at a few vendors, looked for beer... NONE! And left for the Dam site inn...Paid 10 bucks for a sticker (admission) :). I think it was a little like heat stroke.... ???? :)

Hell yeah ChopSmitty. Chistina was a sweet gal and rides a motorcycle herself. She just sold her current bike. She also knew about bikes. Was checkin out a couple WCC bikes and asking me questions about them. Real sweet girl.

Good to meet everybody.

Doesn't look too raked out though either. But DAMN do I love those old-school Honda choppers. That's definitely a slick ride. Would love to build one some day.

i didn't say you did cupcake.. you took just the right amount (or something)..

Gas Man
05-25-2010, 12:01 PM
No I know. I was downloading them... and thought to myself... I could have really took more. Hell could have did more while there... maybe walked the bike parking and looked at the "real" bikes. But I got a call when I was there, that my buds wife's delievered and lost their baby (5months into pregnancy), due to complications or somin...so that really put a damper on my mind.

Sorry to hear that Chris. Remember a few months back when I announced that I was a soon to be grandfather? Well, it wasn't to be. My daughter lost the baby a few weeks ago.

As for the pics, I kept forgetting I had the stupid camera. I took a few then put it away and didn't remember until I took that last pic of the parking lot. Being old sucks.

I was also busy trying to keep up with the three groups. You and Caveman, Fishman and his buddy, and the other group of 5 or 6 bikes. We all road in together then the three groups split. Being the common denominator, I was trying to run around and spend time with everyone. I felt like I was abandoning you guys.

Then one of the guys from Forbidden Wheels invited me and Fishman to his camper for a beer, and I said...eh, screw it! Abandon away!
