Since the other ride fell apart, me and Fishman decided to do something anyway. This is a different route and includes two of the roads listed on motorcycle roads. I know the area pretty well so I modified the route into most of a loop.

We decided to start at the end (on my map) and work backwards so we get the short Ann Arbor part over with. We're also going to head west at North Territorial and Dexter Pinckney road (point B) for about 5 miles to a little pub called the Inverness for a beer or burger or whatever you want, then backtrack to finish the ride.

Probably start around 1:30 or 2:00.

I have a class this weekend so I won't be able to make it. Maybe the next one. I need to ride more before this season is over!

Cool!

Let's meet at 2:00 at the corner of Pontiac Trail and Dixboro. There's a large building with a parking lot on the northwest corner, no idea what it is, but it should be empty at 2:00 on a Sunday.

See link:

As of now there are 4 of us. Anyone else?

Well we had a good ride. Meinschaft didn't show up :confused:, so there were only three of us. Nice roads though and a shitload of bikes out today.

Meinschaft did show up a few minutes late due to rain. I arrived a few minutes after 2 but no one was there. I rode to Inverness but didn't see you guys. I was looking for a yellow Sportster.

Seriously? Were you wearing a white helmet, possibly on a Sporty? You turned around in the driveway. I was there and thought it may be you. I whistled and waved my arms like an idiot. You didn't hear/see me and took off. I was in the parking lot. I got there around 1:45 and we waited until 2:30 for you!

Well, that sucks!

Nope, I wear a gray helmet, ride a blue Kaw sportbike. I checked out all the corners in the N. Territorial/Pontiac Trail/Dixboro triangle. There was a group of guys on black HDs at the party store on the corner of N. Territorial/P. Trail, but I was looking for a yellow Sporty.

Did you ever make it to the Inverness Tavern?
