Plenty of us here. Got a few in the metro area. We need to do a group get together some time. Do I see any hands?

Just a thought-

The BMW of Battle Creek Mini Rally in Sturgis, MI is 5/5/2017 to 5/7/2017. I will be there this year and probably leading the Saturday lunch ride as I do most years. This is a very mellow rally and a good way to dust off your camping equipment for the season. Anyone else interested?

Photo of last year's rally with my FJR in the foreground and a friend's S-Ten in the background below. Oh yea, a few BMW's show up as well!

Romney gathering is that weekend. Was planning trip there. Not highjacking your idea but if anyone is interested let me know. There should be two bikes from here going.

Outstanding. Looks like there are a couple good options for that first weekend in May.

New S10 owner, eastern U.P. based. Come riding weather I’ll be doing a weekend U.P. pasty ride, route set by favorite pasty stops. Camping and hotels if raining. Date to be determined.
Now back to Santa duties!

My dad and grandfather are from Wyandotte. I used to live in Lincoln Park, and Temperance. Don't miss the winters. :cool:

I grew up at Whitefish Point and still live nearby, I cannot tell how many times I have been there to show family and friends the museum and area. I was living at Whitefish Point when the Fitzgerald went down and walked the beach the following days to search for bodies or any sign of wreckage. My brothers in law were working at Vermillion (CG Lifesaving Station) so they walked the beach and found a life preserver and a rudder to a life boat. Both items are on display in the museum the last I knew.

Still too much snow but it's starting to melt, albeit to slow for me! Are there any rides planned for Michigan this summer? I am likely headed to Newfoundland/ Labrador this summer for one ride, will keep an eye on this thread for any more local rides.
