Meet at Starbucks on WOODWARD (http://maps.google.com/maps?q=Starbucks,+royal+oak,+mi&hl=en&ll=42.519407,-83.187886&spn=0.002969,0.004801&sll=42.519399,-83.187886&sspn=0.002985,0.004801&t=m&radius=0.15&hq=Starbucks,+royal+oak,+mi&z=18&iwloc=A) in Royal Oak (Not main st) @ 1030

Unless dinner is at noon.

Clubhouse has great food and an awesome beer list. I think I'm going to be staying longer than you guys so I can work my way through the selection.

It's ok but not much moe. I was there in 2009 for the entire weekend. I've had better at swap meets. Then after that its basically a drinking fest at a county fair ground.


Well they did have a sweet burn out trailer.... I got some vids of that on my YouTube channel.

Not a lot of parking there and a ton of cagers coming/going, I suggest meeting at the shopping center on the same side of woodward, but the other side (south) of 13 mile.

Prob is not much around. We can change plans and head out to the Red Dog in Milford, I know the roads, nice swing around the lake, etc.

Or we could keep going from Milford and head out to Zukey Lake Marina near Pinckney, its a nice place, on a lake, and some nice back roads from Milford to get there.

Other option is to head out to Oxford, to the Oxford Tap, again, I know the route, its nice after you get past Rochester, LOL

Looks like a good time just wish i could have been in two places at once. I had a good time at ride for a reason and was shocked at the pace we kept with over 1500 bikes in a line. Ive got some pictures i will post when i get to a computer.

Gas Man

A speedy pace or slow? Usually that depends on how deep you are in the line.

RedneckMedic
06-03-2013, 09:08 AM
Was rolling close to 50 for the majority of the ride. The people behind me were new riders and couldnt keep up and really slowed everyone down behind them And pissed a lot of people off.

Gas Man
06-03-2013, 12:41 PM
Yeah but how close to the front were you? I think that is key. The further back you get the more slinky it gets.

Kosher
06-03-2013, 12:43 PM
I just cant imagine 1500 bikes working in any sane way whatsoever. I was stressed about leading 9 other bikes, glad we're all still alive! :)

The slinky effect at the very back must have been insane!

RedneckMedic
06-03-2013, 02:19 PM
I was a couple hundred deep but the majority o the pack still behind us
