    And the new tag, I'm bending the rules ever so slightly :deal (please tell me to FYYFF if I shouldn't do that). But I think this tag is worth it.

    It's 1 street over from the Western county border, so so close.

    Right where 'Arnold Rd' appears to be just running right through Watkins lake (which is just north of Watkins Rd) :evil

    Picture is looking North

    Wished I would have gotten the shot before the leaves filled in, but Get Thee off to the Nunnery, so this Sister holy rolled down Warren Rd between Dixboro and Earhart Rds....like the signs say...watch for pedestrians with Good Habits

    Got it! That compound looks amazing, I was tempted to go in and walk around but decided against it. On my way to get my tag, it'll be up soon

    This is right along the Huron river on country club road. I think this part of it is still public. That's a bridge over the river in the background

    OK, I figure you can get into this swanky community if you strap a set of clubs on your scoot, theres a sign that says "motorcycles and scooters prohibited" BS i went anyway... certainly terrorized the country clubbers I'm sure. lol

    OK, another one lane bridge...Rosbolt Rd., over the Paint Creek. Nice morning for a ride...

    Thanks for dropping one in my back yard Fire88dog. Got the bridge over Paint Creek on a lovely evening ride, but I could hardly get out of there fast enough. The place is just buzzing with man-eating skeeters!

    Here's the new tag. If you are out north of Ann Arbor you will have a JOYfull time cruising west on this ROAD. It curves through the woods as it heads towards Dexter. If it turns to pavement, you went too far.

    I went out early this morning to knock off Scorpion's Round House - what a beautiful setting. I love riding around these roads to look for future places to live. Quiet setting, room for a garden, big-ass pole barn for more bikes!

    Here is the new tag. The cemetery is in Wayne County, the bike is in Washtenaw, so I think it counts. You will enjoy the sweet smell from the garbage pile just to the south.

    It's a bit tough to read the sign, the stone is easier:

    Should be a beautiful day to ride.

    Sorry - I just realized that the Thayer cemetery is a retag! It is still good - but I'll check my history better next time!

    I am always awed by the craftsmen that were able to do what they did w the tools of the day. A time when speed of getting it built and paid wasn't the priority...then again there's the pyramids, but I haven't seen any in Washtenaw County yet. But I'm lookin':lol3

    Keep an eye out for barns with curved roofs. I'm told that was a way to show off your construction skills to your pals back in the day. My cousin-in-law built an beautiful garage/man-cave with one just to show that his family still had the skills.

    Coming home from pancake breakfast we put on at work, was behind a couple on a Triumph 800xc, thinking maybe he was one of the Washtenaw crowd. Usually pass by the ole dump on the way so I grabbed the tag.
