Owl, can you make a few suggestions and layout a rough plot of what, where, when??


EDIT DETAILS:


Everyone meet up at Poor Boy Choppers, High Noon Sunday kickstands up @ 12:45. PBC will be open and have hot coffee for the TWM gang.

I am out for this coming weekend, as my wife and I will be up north. I would sugest a nice loop starting in Oxford, or ortonville (Bullfrog's) possibly a good lunch local, then ride up towards Mt holly then over to Lapeer, to yale/ capac area then down threw almont/Romeo area then back towards Oxford, or make it longer and head east from there towards St. Claire/94 area? lots of good riding up this way to be had. I wish i could do it this weekend but already have plans to be out of town. The Oxford Tap is a nice little place to make a stop also rite in town, good food and refreshments. Just depends on how far/long you all want to ride. Eazy 1.5hr loops to all day.

Oxford is a heck of a lot closer than new Toledo , I would make every effort to make A north Oakland ride.

Im also in if we start later. I have another halloween party on Sat but that doesn't slow me down much. I powered through the last few times. If for no other reason, it should be warmer in the later morning/afternoon.

I'm up for starting a bit later... within reason... we need to adjust for the colder temps.

That being said, this past weekend it was cold to start but turned out to be awesome.

OK gasman here’s a short run. Where do you want to startfrom? My starting point will be Poor Boy Choppers. Dixie hwy ,Sashabaw rd north , Seymour lk rdeast to Oxford , Lakeville rd east , Rochester rd south , 32 mile rd east ,through Romeo , Wolcott rd north , through Armada , and in to Richmond. Thereare a few curves and some pleasant scenery.
OR
Matt Wells suggested. Ortonville to Holly to Davidson to Lapeer toAlmont (I have all the details) This could be a awesome ride, but will timeconsuming. This could include a stop at Veterans memorial cemetery in Holly.About a 30 minute side trip but for those that have not been there, itsomething to see.

Hey we’re going to ride Sunday (10/27/2013).
Everyone meet up at Poor Boy Choppers, High Noon Sunday kickstands up @ 12:45. PBC will be open and have hot coffee for the TWM gang. Ourroute will take us north on Dixie Hwy. to Grange Hall rd. and then west toHolly rd. where we will turn north for a few miles to Belford rd. and stop fora minute or three at the Veterans Memorial Cemetery. Back on our way north toBaldwin rd. east, with a turn to the south on Dixie Hwy. a couple minutes downthat road, and we go east on Perryville rd. this becomes Grange Hall rd. whichwill lead us to Ortonville rd. headed south. We pick up Seymour Lake. Rd. thatwill take us through Oxford. Lakeville rd. goes east out of Oxford to Lakevillewhere we get Rochester rd. where we weave through a little construction so wecan get to 32 Mile rd. and go east even further. The ride through Romeo andArmada is great and this takes us to Richmond. Once we get to Richmond a latelunch or early dinner and a bit of libation is call for. From Richmond there are several ways to getback to civilization. Where we stop in Richmond will be anyone’s choice.

Dave, if decide to come across M59, I can give you directions to my crib, or meet you at the gas station in Ponticrack again...

Great job with the lead Jim. Nice route-good time again.
Hopefully we can sneak in a couple more of these in before the season ends, especially since J was only able to make two of these this year.
