Great trip William! Always a pleasure to read!! :clapping:

thanks but now I need to find something to do this winter, tintop adventures are fun but not like being on the mighty ST 1300 or the wing

I literally had a Michigan map open in another window and was jumping back and forth between it and your narrative. There is no question that you've planted a seed and that I'll now have to make the "shore tour" a destination. That's not a trip I want to hurry, so I will make sure that I'll have several weeks to do it right.

Thanks for the blow-by-blow. The detail is such that folks like me who've not run the area feel like they're missing something. (We are!)

+1 on the great trip reports. It's bad enough that you set such a high standard William with your photos but now it's seems like a professional travelogue is required as well. :smilie_happy:
I think I need to spend more time riding by myself or just another mate to improve my ride reports. Unfortunately or fortunately we seem to spend more time in pubs than museums, sightseeing, etc when we are riding. :whistling: :salute:

I still need the west coast from ludington, mi. south to new buffalo, mi. ill have to keep a note of that and see if I can get it done next year but I'm glad I've encouraged you to make tracks for Michigan's west coast

I would say that 98% of my riding is by myself so I can stop when I want or go as fast or as slow as I want. I missed a few photo opps over the weekend because I didn't want turbojim to have to wait for me. so while turbojim took me on some roads I had never been on before I would have taken more pic's on the road I had been on before if I were by myself. if you are going to do a ride report take a note book and pen so you can write some of it down ( I still do this sometimes ), the phone is my camera and could be used to take notes also

I'm not known for expressing myself well so lately I've been trying to improve on my writing by being more expressive. I was a math guy in school and while I had good grades in classes like English it was more work to get the same grade I got in math

I was in Flint yesterday and it was not very nice. Spittin snow. I think that if had more than just a couple of months of riding weather I could live in Bay City. Nice write-up.

i like bay city myself but if I were to move up north I would like to be somewhere nearer to lake huron or out near idlewild. been raining around these part since Monday so I guess a visit to flint wasn't much fun, ever stop in frankenmuth

Nice ride! Nice narrative! I look forward to the next one :)

By the way, you have a picture of a head (ie bust) in a field, any ideas about it?

turbojum spotted it so we back tracked a few hundred miles to get a better view for our pic. turbojim said the guy that made it has many other metal works in the area, I remember hearing something about them on UTR Michigan but don't remember the guy's name that made them

i see a type-o that I can't correct, it was only a few hundred feet we back tracked
I think that would be cool to find some heads like the ones on easter island but that one looks like a relative of the tin man from the wizard of oz :)
