    Said goodbye to the big cat. After taking the rawhyde adventure off road training I found a love for the big 1200gsa.

    In case you don't know who you are playing tag with. :lol3 He is an interesting cat.

    "ISHII (Yohin) in training" sighting tonight !!!

    Those who don't know Ishii, he has done all the Great Lakes Iron Butt rides with our Regional Group, plus others, and has entered and been accepted into the 2017 Iron Butt Rally (11,000 miles in 11 days) in the Hopeless Class on his 400 Burgman.

    Our Regional Ridemaster, Jim Van Den Berghe, has organized a Saddle Sore 1000 for next year ending in Minnesota at the finish Hotel for the 2017 IBR, welcoming in the finishers, one of which will hopefully be Ishii.

    Will Smith and I rolled into the Michigan Welcome Center/Rest Area, about 15 miles north of Toledo, Ohio, around 7:15 pm tonight, and guess who pulled in right behind us ? Yep, Ishii. I've said it before, small world.

    Burgman 400 with fuel cell, and Ishii said it is running very good. Ready for the 2017 IBR.

    Pulled :D. The weather today was great until I was proximal to the Island.
    Apparently being surrounded by a freezing lake can do that.

    I'll be going back when when the weather is more conducive to riding, fishing, and generally not freezing your bits off.


    And here's the Drop:

    I moved very little. The parking lot and the inside Peninsular park was very slippery. Other than that, no problem to ride. Temperature yesterday was 31F.

    bump for laziness.

    I can't move it this week, but does anyone have a request for a general location for me to drop the next marker at?

    I got the tag.

    I hope I got the right abandon velodrome in Detroit. Dorais Playground corner of Mound and Outer drive.

    It was quite the experience. I will also admit that I did not ride it. Let me borrow your bike and I think I would.


    drop it here:

    I used to really like this place. You could get bratwurst, wiener schnitzel, good potato salad. All kind of yummy stuff. Apparently it is under new owner ship. The good stuff is gone. This still have the full beer menu though.

    Picture is a little small. hope it shows the right at water location.

    Yup, that's the right one: Dorias Playground. You should have done a couple laps! Or did it like me when it was wet. :ricky

    I really like Atwater brewery, been to both in Detroit and GPP. Dirty Blonde is my jam.
