i can identify with the info about crossing the bridge, seems they always have the lanes closed and force the bikes across the metal grated part. No fun on a packed klr, ask me how I know.
I was in Marquette a few weeks ago to pick up some antique snowmobile parts. I really like the Upper Penn. of Mich.
I broke a bone in my foot in June last summer, and hopped around and lost a whole month of riding.
You are tougher than I am.
