    Very timely! Next Wednesday I'm heading to Port Austin (thumb of Michigan) and Bay City to watch the Tall Ships come in.
    I'll get some pics but don't think I can get the bike anywhere near the ships.

    Here's a sunset overlooking Lake Huron from Port Austin on my wife and I's first overnight moto-trip together a couple years back.

    The big lake they call Gitche Gumee.

    I take my annual trek every fall and for some reason I keep going to the same area. I guess because it's just awesome beautiful sandy dual sport riding. Been doing this for about 7 or 8 years now.

    Pictured Rocks National Lake shore.
    Miners Castle.
    Kingston Plains.
