if thats the bridge I'm thinking of it will be a cold day in hell before I ride across that bridge again. Is that the one thats all steel grating for a surface? I'll pay someone to ride it or rent a boat before I cross that goddam bridge again on 2 wheels.

outstanding ride report. take a bow.

I want to thank everyone on this site for being so honest and passionate about this great sport.
Great write-up. Thank you for sharing.

Hope you make it up this way someday. Have fun, Mark H.

Great RR

Thanks for the great ride report! It helps the winter pass. I love to see great pics of our home state (Michigan) and the Great Lakes to let everyone know that you don't need to go to the Smokey Mountains to ride.

see you on the road sometime.
