I also was talking to some people at Stella's bar that are members of the Road Weasels? An Indian only motorcycle club here in Grand Rapids. Anyone heard of it? Said there hangout is the bow tie in Sparta. It'd be cool to check out some old school Indians. Really nice people.

The lady driving it was a cutie. Recent college grad working marketing for Kraft. She did not seem impressed with my weiner jokes, and she would not let me drive the weinermobile

She did however give me a whistle!

We were on our way over to the shop on Sunday, crested a hill and there it was...a banana in the road. Cruising right along. A four seater, all seats in a row going up the curve of the banana.

yup. I highly recommend D3 customs. He has a small shop off Lake Michigan Drive & Wilson. He spends a good amount of time at Grattan/Racetrack and is friends with a bunch of us. He's fair in labor and does great work.

I've always been a fan of Jeremy at Performance.....but believe that D3 is better at engine work.

Shawmut is great for parts.....but with high labor rates.

no one else in town I trust anymore. I will do my own next Vstrom valve check. and heck, probably won't bother until 40,000 miles or so.

Hoping to get the wife on board to going to the blessing in Baldwin next weekend. Definitely planning to run down to MIS this Saturday with some guys from the V4 forum - they tell me we will be able to get the bikes out on the track. (!)

How about meeting at Common Ground Coffee House 8-830ish and riding on up to Baldwin at 9 for whoever wants to join? Sound like a plan?

Sunday May 18, 2014

address:

Common Ground Coffee Shop
1319 Fulton St E
Grand Rapids, MI 49503


P.M. me if interested. Open to anyone.
