So I know the other thread has a couple people saying they will go but lets get a more official thread for this years cook off. Anyone want to meet up and ride there together. Maybe we could get a group together and ride hines up. We just wont have tele be the one to try and find parking this year. Any Idears (said like paul senior) let's hear them.

This is this Sunday, the 9th.

Thanks rugby for setting up the thread...

Wraith, thanks for the invite, I think we're going to try and setup something else up. Don't want to get into a bigger group, yet, being I'm not sure how big your group will be. Please take some pics of your ride and post them up. Perhaps on the next round we can get the 2 groups together.

I say we meet at Donutville on Ford Rd in Dearborn, for coffee & donut. MAP (http://maps.google.com/maps?q=donuts,+ford+rd,+dearborn,+mi&hl=en&ll=42.329335,-83.189075&spn=0.000563,0.001206&sll=42.329125,-83.188777&layer=c&cid=12132420106885637720&cbp=13,118.02,,0,0.22&panoid=oGs5aiqrsaNSsVqawLlwWg&hq=donuts,+ford+rd,+dearborn,+mi&t=h&z=20&vpsrc=0&cbll=42.329335,-83.189075)

rugby... I'll be heading up telegraph if you want to join me going to Ford Rd.

10-06-2011, 01:24 AM
Ya we can meet at the key west cafe again. All I have to do is make sure my throttle cable gets here before then its going to be a close one. I have to take the day off work to go and I'm not going to take it off if I can't ride up there. Its been one thing after another with my bike this summer and when its been running good the weather has been less than preferable.

10-06-2011, 03:05 PM
Well according to ups my cable wont be here until monday so it looks like I wont be able to go on sunday

10-07-2011, 01:13 AM
I'm planning on running down Sunday from Algonac.

Dad reports that the weather was great. He and Howard sampled many, and inexplicably he still likes Hormel the best....?

10-09-2011, 07:33 PM
Chili by Jose, hands down the best there.

10-09-2011, 08:47 PM

Well regardless of the lack of participation here, Iron Rider wanted to go!

We went to Donutville and had a great cup of coffee and a pumpkin donut. YUM!

Iron Rider isn't a little un-sure about that talking GPS (under my helmet)

The sights.. (no not my bike in this pic)

Found Big House's bike

The place to find individual people chili, which is always the better types.

A Zero Motorcycle, which is a battery powered bike.

It was a great trip and my route was superb. You guys missed out!!

10-11-2011, 01:24 AM
At least you got to try the individual cook's chili me made that mistake of not going in that part last year to taste

Gas Man
10-11-2011, 09:43 AM
Yep, fixed that mistake from last year.

10-11-2011, 09:48 AM
Me too. I didn't even try any of the restaraunt chili this year.

Gas Man
10-11-2011, 09:54 AM
I did try a few restraunt chili but it was disappointed compared to the individual cooks.

10-11-2011, 11:22 AM
