Hey that will work for me..If this works out we can ride in together.
When you come from Lansing I assume you come down I-96, so you'll go right by my house..we can ride in from New Hudson...

I could probably do that.

it takes me about an hour to get to new hudson, then about 20 min to the meet up spot.

i could meet you at the on ramp around 11:40-11:45 if that sounds good. or if you have a better spot to meet?

Wait, real bikers don't eat kiche.....

I'm going to try and make this. I have a project going that is weather dependant. If Sunday looks good weather-wise then I'll blow off Staurday and do the ride.

Hey Sunday sounds great the weekend weather sounds great..also
I have a group (5-6) heading out Saturday morning..we are going to go around the thumb and back..if we make good time we may even go a little farther..any one want to joins us??? We leave around 7 -8 am and return whenever..probably between 8 -or 10 pm depending on how things go..

Jeez, I was thinkin' this was a Saturday ride. Sunday is better yet, I can finish up the project on Saturday and not have to worry about it while puttin' around.

I dunno Fishman, I'm not sure a ride around the thumb would be much fun on a Sporty. The ride there would be fine, it'd be the ride back that kills me. Is this going to be a singles event or couples?

When sunday... I just remember I had a few commitments this weekend... one screws over sat completely.

yeah, you cruisers will probably like your ride better.

i know there are mostly sports bikes coming with me... so if you guys on the cruisers want to head with fishman i would completely understand.


This event is planned for Sunday the 16th just so everyone is 100% sure.

Fishman
08-11-2009, 02:05 PM

Fishman, I'd like to latch on to your Sat group if its okay. I met some of the guys at the Ride for Autism. So many choices for some great rides. Not sure if I can do the Sunday ride, but wife may let me out for Saturday. I am in 15 mile/Dyke area in Sterling Heights if you have any meet and greet details. Is this the same route as the ride around the thumb posted on the www.motorcycleroads.com?

I have a guy coming from Ypsi so we have a ride just to get started. The others are in the Waterford\ Clarkston area.. Right now Im planning on meeting at Telegraph and Walton..no later than 8:00 am..preferably 7:30...route by Mapquest says 230 miles out at just under 5 hours avoiding the big E-ways..you cold bee line back from Bay City in 1 1/2..or not...

Telegraph and Walton is fine for me to meet. Of course, I am flexible in case you need to change the spot. I will keep an eye on this thread as Sat gets closer.
