    Skid, I grew up outside of Grand Ledge. Do you know it? It's near Lansing.

    I'll be there.



    Not sure if I'll leave Indianapolis on Sunday (I'm in a wedding) and spend 2 days touring the UP (900+ miles in 2 days to make the Rally point evening of the 1st or stretch a bit and come in afternoon of 2nd) or head home and leave bright and early Monday morning for a more direct route.


    If anyone is coming from north (Nordo?) or west (all you Rocky Mountain folk) of Indianapolis and would like to link up to ride some of the UP on July 30/Aug 1-2, feel free to get ahold of me and we can jot out a plan. Thinking it'll be better to hit the UP on the way in as I would like to try and see Niagara on my way out. (lofty plans!) We'll see what the weather (and the beer) holds.

    Tentative route:

    Anyone that has more time available and wants to tag along for Niagara is more than welcome.

    I'm wondering where all those east coast fuckers are who said they couldn't swing the Shady Rally last year because it was too far?! :lol3

    This is a pretty good location. Nearly anyone on the east coast is only 650-750 miles away. That's 2 moderate days of riding or a very leisurely 3 days with time to stop and smell the roses. Being you made this mid-week, it should be perfect for most those guys.
