Great ride

Been a down year on the bike with travel softball and brutal Michigan heat.. Lot of rain the last two days and tonight I got out and put some miles on. Temps at 90 and then dropped into low 70's. Bike was on it and smooth as glass..... better than 100 miles just doking around on backroads... Most excellent therapy a guy could ask for....

Just spectacular....

A little throttle therapy does the body ad mind good for sure.

Where in SW Michigan? I used to live in Grand Haven years ago, love that area...

Good to hear that you got a good ride in. The Good Lord knows that I could definitely use one right about now. Maybe this weekend, I might see if I can get 225 miles in. At least that is what the route comes out to...

Nice, I loved St. Joseph as I was heading from Chicago to Grand Haven. Someday I'll head up that way for a ride in Michigan.
