Not sure whether to congratulate or offer condolences.

How about, "Have safe trip, sorry about your Dad, and congrats on the sweet bikes."

BTW, I tactfully convinced the wife to come home a few hours early from our weekend away in TC so I could fit in an Allegan County cruise with the boy yesterday. Two days straight without riding was giving me the shakes

We visited the thriving metropolis of Hopkins . Actually a nice little farm town, but don't blink riding through or you'll miss it.

Hey, I was out that way yesterday too! Instead of going to Portland for lunch I went out by Gun Lake, the roads are much more interesting. The first restaurant I went to on Bradly Road was closed so I went down to Prarieville and it was closed too. Dang. That whole town had gone to ruin since the bike shop left. ..I then went over towards Plainwell to check out the airport restaurant and you guessed it...closed. I then went ot Otsego to get some tasty chicken at the Chicken Shack.....closed! Sheet! I'm starving man! I was getting desperate and almost went to Applebees.. Then I went down the street to the Upper Crust Restaurant and had soup and a BLT. Excellent grub! Where we going to stop for lunch tomorrow Than?

It might be that the city gentrified that neighborhood and replaced all the black people with hipster douchebags in skinny jeans riding fixed gear bikes. Don't get me started

Every time I go down there now I want to puke, but I still do on occasion because Sandman's is soooooooooo good.

Aww crap, I hope my mini-rant didn't come off making anyone sound racist. It was meant as exactly the opposite of that.
