A slight variation of TWC combined with a TWM tradition of Chili Cook off (http://www.greatlakeschili.com/).

I'm going to adapt from our 2011 ride....

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)

So I say we meet up at 1000am
Kickstands up 1030am

Short Route: Takes 35mins to get to plymouth via hines drive. Ruff Route (http://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=14829+Ford+Road,+Dearborn,+MI+48126-3041+%28Donutville%29&daddr=42.3427668,-83.2636245+to:42.3585683,-83.383469+to:42.3702316,-83.4550274+to:Plymouth,+MI&hl=en&sll=42.365774,-83.462276&sspn=0.072041,0.154324&geocode=FSbkhQId16MK-yFYprmQzgNfqCn_xaOB6jQ7iDG34f3ufs5yTg%3BFW4ZhgIdeH 8J-ylNFmGJuko7iDFFgfz6InERdA%3BFShXhgIdU6sH-yl5Ga38LE07iDFsTbnHV8ztSg%3BFbeEhgIdzZMG-ymRHOkWLq0kiDF4x57jM7g6AA%3BFWGJhgIde1gG-ykJeu1G1qwkiDHzcxjQk8eG_Q&vpsrc=0&mra=dpe&mrsp=3&sz=13&via=1,2,3&t=h&z=13)
Long Route: Same start with an added loop. Ruff Route (https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=14829+Ford+Road,+Dearborn,+MI+48126-3041+%28Donutville%29&daddr=42.3427723,-83.2636057+to:42.3585688,-83.383469+to:42.4234253,-83.5026705+to:42.401393,-83.6065379+to:Plymouth,+MI&hl=en&ll=42.362603,-83.509827&spn=0.132167,0.338173&sll=42.391769,-83.569393&sspn=0.066053,0.169086&geocode=FSbkhQId16MK-yFYprmQzgNfqCn_xaOB6jQ7iDG34f3ufs5yTg%3BFXQZhgIdi3 8J-ylNFmGJuko7iDFFgfz6InERdA%3BFShXhgIdU6sH-yl5Ga38LE07iDFsTbnHV8ztSg%3BFYFUhwIdstkF-ykRNjiAdKwkiDErF6PDBJX6Aw%3BFXH-hgId90ME-yl3ze0kblUjiDEOCzSJm6Tvrw%3BFWGJhgIde1gG-ykJeu1G1qwkiDHzcxjQk8eG_Q&t=h&mra=dpe&mrsp=4&sz=13&via=1,2,3,4&z=12) **Preferred**

When we arrive I think we should all enter the MC show. If no other reason than WAY better parking! I'm doing it and plan on leaving TWM biz cards on my seat! I can bring a bunch of them so we all can do it.

Quite possibly one of my favorite events i the year and I agree with you chris. Join the show for good parking.

I don't want to be too bold and actually make plans to do anything, but I am not scheduled to work this Sunday... as long as they don't find out at work that I am planning to sneak out for a day to enjoy myself, I should be able to make it.

10-02-2013, 03:08 PM
Well, I should have known better - I plan on doing anything and we go back to 12hrs & 7 days.
Effin ridiculous... at least I got to make the parent teacher conferences during my 2 - 10 hr days.

10-03-2013, 10:29 AM

10-03-2013, 12:15 PM

10-03-2013, 12:41 PM

10-03-2013, 10:08 PM
Alright Jessica.

It did this shit last year... I ended up in the cage. Last years weather at this event sucked. Looks like a repeat of last year this sunday. I rode there then. Got wet on my way home......we shall see.

Gas Man
10-03-2013, 11:20 PM
Yeah we shall see how the weather looks. I'm going regardless, even if I have to cage it.

10-04-2013, 01:14 AM
I'm riding regardless. I need miles weather there wet or dry. Plus last year I pusses out and drove and the weather was decent until we left and even then it only rained for a minute.

Hell we've had 50 to 60% chance all day today and it was a nice day.

10-05-2013, 11:40 AM
Anyone still plan on going!

Gas Man
10-05-2013, 12:37 PM
I'm seeing 80-90% chance of thunderstorms.

But something just came up for me and I think I may have to go up north. Wife is talking to her dad now, hard for me to justify staying home if I'm not even riding.

10-06-2013, 09:38 AM

10-06-2013, 09:49 AM

10-07-2013, 12:20 AM
It was me, kaley, skipper and his girl Angela and then I met my grandpa at the cook of and said ahi to Jess as I was leaving. It was a great day even with the little bit of rain we had.

10-07-2013, 12:04 PM
