As always, this time of the year is dictated mostly by weather. I'd love to include as many riders as possible too. We'll just keep watching the forecast to pick a day. Right now the days look pretty much interchangable weather-wise.

I'm pushing for Saturday again, with Sunday as a weather backup.

This is a half-assed map of my proposed route. Not sure yet how many, we might end up riding with Fishman and some of his club. They're from north of here, so not sure if this will work for them.

Blissfield will be a good spot to stop and warm up, eat, drink, or whatever.

I'll refine this at home and double check for dirt roads, etc.

so we still on for tmr weather looks good to me

11-06-2009, 07:38 PM
I was hoping no one would ask.

The vast majority of people, about 8 or 10, can only do Sunday. It sucks, I really wanted to meet you guys. I wish I could do one tomorrow too, but I have to get some outside shit done around the house before winter.

If anyone can do Sunday let me know and I'll give you the info.

Plus there'll be a lot of fags....

Yeah no shit on the deer thing. I worry about that shit too. Was thinking about it tonight while riding. I'm at work now and on the bike. Trying to keep my eyes pealed and brakes covered an extra bit.

Probably stay off back roads too especially at night.

Last year I was heading down West Jefferson about 8:00 in the morning in Gibraltar with a buddy of mine and 2 deer ran out in front of us. Luckily we both spotted the deer coming well ahead of time.

One of the reasons I made the route short enough for people to get home in daylight. Most of the farmers are getting corn and beans off the fields now, so there's a lot more open space next to the roads.

Well, MOST people can get home in the daylight. One guy is riding down from Algonac, and another may come in from Mishawaka(sp?) Indiana!

We rode with the guy from Aglonac last weekend too. He has an '06 Sportster 1200 with...57,000 miles on it! Now THAT'S a guy that rides!

11-08-2009, 11:12 AM
who's from algonac?

11-08-2009, 11:15 AM
Damn! I would have gone on this ride. Bob just informed me of the board and I joined today. So I register and there is JYJ. Damn Jon, is there a site you are NOT on?

I look forward to meeting you guys.

11-08-2009, 11:17 AM
who's from algonac?

A guy from the XL forum.

Here's a cool shot from last week's ride. We stopped in Tecumseh for lunch. There were 8 bikes in our group, the rest were groups of various size. When I saw them lined up I figured it had to be a good spot to get a beer. Not a chance. Some cowboy themed diner. Ugh.


11-12-2009, 09:16 AM
I didn't get a shot of it that day, but here's a pic of a softail that rode with us. This is from when he was rebuilding it last winter. It absolutely blew me away, it has to be one of the most eye-catching bikes I've ever seen.

That Christmas junk up already ticks me off. LOL It's like everyone forgets about Thanksgiving now and goes from Halloween to Christmas. Like, we get free candy for Halloween and presents for Christmas but nothing for Thanksgiving so screw it! hahaha

Hope you guys had a good time!
