    Get your butt to Michigan.
    From there you will have a choice of 4 scooters.
    I will join you for a few days.
    I will pick up the scooter sometime in SoCal or Moab or wherever.

    My son and daughter-in-law up in Michigan have just accepted a transfer to Texas, so I'm loaded up (4 bikes, 1 truck) and heading up from the Alabama gulf coast in the morning for one more series of good rides.

    Starting out riding the Mid-Michigan Trials event on Saturday at Vermontville with my son/daughter-in-law.

    Then on to the Valley Enduro Rider's sprint enduro in Bentley on Sunday, again with my son/daughter-in-law.

    Then traveling solo to the UP with the new adventure bike from Monday-Friday. Probably will stay on pavement and better two tracks as I'll be riding alone for the week, and will motel it at night.

    Then picking my son-in-law up at the airport in Grand Rapids Friday night. All of us are planning to ride Tomahawk B&C over the next weekend.

    Then sadly, load up all my bikes and say my last goodbyes to some great riding and good friends.

    Thanks for the scooter offer, we'll just see how this develops.

    What's the latest from MI? You folks go through a little change of season, and all goes quite, WTF?

    I am craving a root beer float.
    Planning on a 70 Mile scooter ride (the Burgman 650) today to go get the float. :rofl
    I will take the back roads to get there while the girls will take the highway and meet me there.
    I just sent the 'turn by turn' Google Maps directions to my phone. This way no distracting GPS to look at as there are quite a few deer roaming around. Yeah hunting season soon!

    If I was retired, I would ride to the closest EPL and get me some 'shiken' today. But Wife wants me to continue working.

    Feeling sick from grief- - a good friend from Med School passed away yesterday. We lived about 10 Miles from each other, talked once in a while but rarely saw each other.

    Keep you friends close. Don't wait till Christmas or such to be nice.
