I have a family obligation Sunday so why not try another Saturday TWC. We do it every so often.

I can pick it and plan it. But would like to open it up to you all first... Got any places you want to try?

Maybe back roads to Seline? Something like Mac's Acadian Seafood Shack? (https://www.google.com/maps/@42.166752,-83.781104,3a,75y,128.8h,90t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sSjGktOrFjHOZQUeSF1Jypw!2e0) (http://macsinsaline.com/)

Or maybe something up Bagger Dave's way?

Probably start near you, but I dont really know the area between you and Saline, I'd probably set the GPS to avoid highways and see where it takes us.

Avoid highways via Bing (http://www.bing.com/maps/#Y3A9NDIuNTgyNTAwfi04My4yMzc5OTkmbHZsPTQmc3R5PXImc nRwPXBvcy40Mi4xNDA0NjlfLTgzLjE3OTQ0M19UcmVudG9uJTJ DJTIwTUlfX19lX35wb3MuNDIuMTY4MjgyXy04My43NzkxMjFfU 2FsaW5lJTJDJTIwTUlfX19lXyZtb2RlPUQmcnRvcD0wfjB+MH4 mYXY9NA==). ?

Yeah but just avoiding highways isn't always best. Trying to fit in some curves usually helps.

Suggestion.....Meet up at Tim Hos at west/75 and ride down to Huron river Dr. starting in Flat rock. Get on Willow at Michigan memorial and take it out to carpenter rd. Go right to Michigan ave (12) , turn left to saline. A bit straight, but its rural.

I'm out, pretty much bike-less. the 1200 wing is down for the alternator conversion, the 1500 wing is down, needs front wheel bearing, the 750f isn't plated or insured and it has a bad battery, and even if the 450 were plated and insured I wouldn't ride it to saline

Definitely improving forecast, I dig that.

Lets keep an eye on it, the forecast for Saline says 60% PM storms, not sure if that means afternoon or evening.

I say we meet up again at Tim Horton's on West Rd & I-75 (https://plus.google.com/102271665863223445226/about?gl=us&hl=en) again.

We just need to check on when this place opens... do you know Kosher?

Being this is looking like different group of people... I think we can take a similar route as we did last weekend.

If this has an early start, we can stay dry. What time is the meet up? I'm in.

Kosher
08-29-2014, 06:33 PM
The only hesitation I have is that the menu looked a bit spendy - and now the web site doesnt appear to be working. Ok, so 2 hesitations. :)

But I'm up for hitting a restaurant in downtown Saline, cant say as I've ever been there.

We ended up going to Brecon Grille (http://www.urbanspoon.com/r/19/897846/restaurant/Detroit/Brecon-Grille-Saline) in Saline. It was awesome!! My salmon sandwich was delicious. Owl got a seared Ahi Tuna and I had a taste, it was good. Dave said his pulled pork sandwich was good. It was a nice ride and made the who ride with no rain.

Was slammed with work this year. Also the roads were so crappy (94 with the 8 inch wide 6 inch deep 300 foot long ruts!!) I'm sure it was like that everywhere, but huge holes on damn near every road. Already replaced two rims and the tires (which were only two months old) this year on my wife's car. Things look better now, so I'm going to get out more. I've missed riding with everyone. I will keep my eyes open for rides in the next few weeks and look forward to catching up. Glad to see folks are doing well. I will catch up on my reading also in the next few weeks :)
