Rained yesterday in the southwest Mitt but today is spectacular. I'm having lunch at the Stable Inn which is just south of Grand Haven. The Coast Guard Festival is going on. Even with all the ladies in daisy dukes the town is too busy for me. It's like a big pirate fest without the pirates.

Starting to notice a trend here. Virtually every ride report involves where and what the person had to eat. I think we are seeing the oldgoat's RTE influence here.

I hate staying home so I eat out alot. I ride my bikes everyday so RTEs are a normal, daily ritual. It's rough but someone has to do it.

You know old goat, Ted has a degree in Journalism and has written for national magazines, covered international races, etc. Maybe you two should collaborate on a book......"The Old Goat's Definitive Guide to RTE's in Michigan".

I aint no stink'n old goat yet you pony tailed hippie head. We'll need a different title. Besides Michigan doesn't have enough really good places to eat to fill anymore than a page or two. Now Texas, that's a different story. If Ted really wants to pen a RTE journal he should hook up with this guy......http://ridetoeat.com/

Thanks for the welcome! You guys are welcome to visit my neck of the woods anytime - I live and work in the Whitehall/Montague area, mostly. Should be moving soon, but plan to stay in the general area.

I'm riding a Tiger 800, got it while I was stationed on Pendleton and like it even more now that I've had the pleasure of enjoying our fine Michigan roads on it.

Just before we got to the tunnel of trees, we stoped at a gas station right before the tunnel of trees and just so happens, they were doing a customer appreciation day, free hot dogs pop chips and 1oz beer samples from the Petoskey Brewing company . Then a nice leisurely ride through the the tunnel of trees then to Mackinaw City,

After Mackinaw we headed south to the Legs inn, ate some good Polish food. Then we headed south split ways and I headed home.

What a great day.
Good to hear man. I'll be up in Mackinac from the 11th to the 16th when I start my 2 day ride home. I have to be in Holland at 2pm on the 17th to work. I'll hit you up to see if you can ride.

Good call. I'm in love with this DR350 and if I ride it as much as I think I will I might do the same.

For now I'm running the Michelin T63 which is cheap enough to find middle ground.

If and when we go for a ride we'll have to do a bike swap. I think you'll enjoy another 300ccs. Unless you've been doing Weight Watchers since I saw you last I think the bigger DR would be a better fit. The little DR is a better technical bike but for our kind of riding the big boy is the better bike. As an added bonus we have the Doctor of DR650s just down the street, MXRob.

That would be great, and I could see how the extra torque of a 650 would be helpful.

An advantage to a GoldWing:



So need an opinion from the experts. Is it still an RTE if you get a to-go order??


BTW, that apple pie was delicious!!
