Thread: Father's Day weekend run around the lake.

  1. #1

    Default Father's Day weekend run around the lake.

    So, myself and a couple buddies are planning on a nice little run for Father's Day weekend. We plan on leaving northern Oakland County early Friday morning (6/19) to catch the ferry in Muskegon around 10:30 and take it to Milwakee. Check out the HD museum that afternoon and find a nice dinner and a rest in town that night. Then head north along the shore line and stay in some place in the UP sat. Night, then ride back down to Muskegon area Sun. Either spending then night there or heading back from there that day. We have that Friday and Monday off so we have some wiggle room for bad weather or just need a break from the saddle. No reservations have been made as of yet but if anyone is interested in joining us, the more the merrier. So far we have two road kings, a soft tail and me on my road glide. One of my buddies will be meeting us in Milwakee as he lives in Chicago. If there is enough interest by this coming weekend, I will check into a better rate for a block of rooms, but the group would have to be at least 10 or more. Just throwing it out there for anyone interested.

    Sounds like fun. I'm working on a similar trip later in the summer... minus the UP part.

    You taking the Lake Express ferry?

    Hey Matt, where are you leaving from, when (time) are you leaving, have you rode with the other riders, and are you locked into a 4 hour boat ride. I may be interested in riding along that weekend.

    Jim
