    The smell always brings back memories. It doesn't bother me too much, but I doubt I could live right next to like some do.

    Phenomenal riding weather. Wish my chore list wasn't so long. I would have loved to be riding all day.

    Apparently my post broke advrider because it was down for a bit. Now I was at a wedding here last weekend and realized...we need a tag with a tank in it.

    Why be in a hot tank when you can feel the cool breeze in the helicopter...?

    Ah yea - 4th of July weekend fireworks in Bay City are kind of a big deal for the area. Getting in and out of the river front is a nightmare, and the current construction isn't making it any better. If you aren't on foot you don't stand a chance. And the carnival is likely right on top of the tag as well. Friday and Saturday evenings will be even worse than yesterday.

    I was going to try to make a suicide run after work.

    Going to rant a little bit here. I went to go get the tag, fully expecting a ton of traffic and pedestrians, idiot drivers, and shitty parking with it. Now I have been down to this park many times both for the 4th and not. The worst I remember was people asking for donations, not enforced payment to an otherwise public road to a public park. Needless to say I didn't feel like getting into a pissing match with the minimum wage security guard just doing his job, and I took a nearby road to get the pick.

    Yes I am too lazy and too cheap to get off my bike to get my wallet and fork over $1 to enter a park on a road my taxes already pay for.

    On a lighter note, here is my alma mater , and the Hall in which I spent most of my time. This is the newest addition, which was built sometime after my graduation.

    I promise there is one in Michigan, you just have to remind google what state you live in sometimes.
