Got back on track eventually.




Encountered some Morans in Port Huron and spent the night with Dyno and Mrs. Dyno. Mark_O and DenniSMC had ridden over from NY to join the festivities.

Mr. and Mrs. Dyno provided us with a great supper and breakfast. The guest bed was pretty nice, too.

We headed off to zigzag our way to the bridge to cross over into the UP.




It turns out Kennyanc and PJ were in the area and planning to go to CADVR as well. They needed a little extra tire to get them back to NC and Dave had a take-off that would do the trick. I offered to tote it over to Wisconsin.




We stopped here for breakfast, at Mary Ann's Restaurant. Good stuff.




More zigzagging.








The rain kind of threatened us all day, but really didn't get to be an issue until we crossed the bridge.

We hit the Mackinac Bridge at the same time as a pretty decent storm. The wind was crazy, probably the worst I've experienced on a bike. I had strongly considered pulling the MotoMule on this trip. I'm glad I didn't, I feel like the ride over the bridge might not have ended so well. As soon as we got over the bridge, it poured down rain on us.


Perfect place to stay for someone who would ride across that bridge in a wind storm;




Our view.




Look who showed up to join us for breakfast the next morning! Kenny and PJ were right behind us the day before, but smart enough not to cross the bridge in the storm.




We broke the fast at Java Joe's.




Mark has his own sign with his mental age on it.

We took in a view of the bridge before we headed west.




Someone has their own private viewing area.

You didn't know the Moran Nation had a capital city, did you?







If those guys working on the post office wondered what we were doing putzing around there for 15 minutes, they sure didn't show it.





We hotfooted it across the UP on Rt. 2. Few Pics were taken. Rain was dodged.

Looking good. This was a summertime trip, wasn't it? What's up with the heavy clothes?

That means a lot, coming from a legend such as yourself.
