Surprised that no one offered to "put a little cream on it for you" in Saugatuck right ORGT

Thats not my department but there might have been someone within earshot that would have gladly volunteered. Thats why you need to be careful where you eat and what you say in Sausagetuck........I saw on the news this morning that a biker crashed in Ada last night and is in critical condition with a head injury. Yep, you guessed it.... Thanks Rick.

Congratulations Charlie! Welcome to the lazy old farts club. I got a six year head start on you but then I am a few months older.

Congrats!
Thank you for taking care of the veterans.
I don't know if you got many thanks at your job, I know I don't, so I try to tell people thanks for their contribution to society when I can. There were probably better paying jobs or jobs with better hours along the way to retirement, but you stayed the course.

Thanks
Kent

Hey everyone - I've been looking to find a group of adventure riders in the Grand Rapids, MI area.... People that ride larger bikes, camp, etc.. I have a 950 Super Enduro... Anyone else in the area with a large dualsport that's looking to ride anytime soon?? I'm willing to go anywhere on the bike even if it means I will be picking it up myself.. I need to ride!!!

We’ve said it before, but it bears repeating; the GS handles in ways a two-story building was never meant to.

Taking collections for Faye Butler Training please spare some change.

Remember red and yellow make orange.so to think orange is better means you have to use two steps to get there.

Welcome man! Most the rides around here would be suitable to your bike....with some work

I don't think we have many single-trackers around.

I just realized I have nothing to do tomorrow. Well, that's not EXACTLY true. I own a house so I ALWAYS have something to do.

However, I am fully prepared to blow whatever that is off and go riding tomorrow

Who's in and where to go? I always go south. Maybe north this time. There appears to be a nice brewery in Ludington. Of course, that would mean a ride through the lakeshore north of Muskegon.....

EDIT:

South isn't all bad either. Bell's brewery anyone?

Charlie are you going to be in the shop tomorrow?
