Keep an eye out for barns with curved roofs. I'm told that was a way to show off your construction skills to your pals back in the day. My cousin-in-law built an beautiful garage/man-cave with one just to show that his family still had the skills.

that was me...

Coming home from pancake breakfast we put on at work, was behind a couple on a Triumph 800xc, thinking maybe he was one of the Washtenaw crowd. Usually pass by the ole dump on the way so I grabbed the tag.

Well... I have to say that I was out on Friday looking for this cool barn. I believe that I rode the entire length of Lima-Center, S to N, and I couldn't find a curved barn...or a Burmeister Rd... But, it was a fun ride never the less.

Oh... and bmwgrrl, the Ugly Dog is always a nice stop when you're cruising by North Lake. Was Ruger there? (the ugly dog...) Jon, the owner, used to ride a DR650 all the time, but I think he sold it.

Tim, if you stopped at or picked up Lima-Center at Bethel-Church, you didn't go far enough south....

Nice... I did pick it up at Bethel-Church because I thought that's where it ended. Now that I look at mapquest I see that I was wrong! Lima-Center is cut into so many little pieces! Doens't look like a very good week for commuting with the bike for me, but maybe someone will grab this tag!

Talked to John a bit about bikes and yep Ruger was indeed there. They were bottling up some Traverse City whiskey for them. Bummer I couldn't buy any. Good to see they're doing well.

somebody post a new tag!

I'm itching to get out tonight or tomorrow and get another tag in, OK I'm riding either way... had to take the 800GS in for 6000mi. check up and needed a ride home. Detroit BMW gave me a 1200GS loaner/demo and needs some miles on it, I ain't letting him down!! If your shopping BMW, Tony at Detroit is awesome, no bs, great deals, and very accommodating. I kinda fell in love on the way home, this thing is awesome....

not a tag, security is there now

Maybe not a fair tag.
Its at the top of the Packard plant in Detroit, we did a group ride last year.
Its dangerous, don't go alone.
Heres a vid of ride:

It was a really nice day.
I think there is still a tag back a few pages.
