2013 Michigan meet up..

Well I think we have more of us here than we think. Since I have relatives all across the state I was thinking a meet up or ride.. It's doesn't have to be anything special. Just like meet here at 10 ride here , eat lunch , maybe dinner then ride home..

I have some friends who would come along but they don't own yamaha's ( it's a shame I now)

So let me know what the interest level would be..

Feel free to give dates,cool places to ride, or just general michigan talk..

I'm in... Wife and I are over here in the Thumb - Cass City. Originally from CT. Favorite place to ride is Vermont. Been riding 50 years.

As far as what other people ride... that's one of the great things about our sport. Be bloody boring is we all rode the same brand etc.

I used to have 1800 Goldwing, I am still member of GWRRA... Really great bunch of people. Kind of funny cause you know more often than they care to admit some wish they had what I am riding.... Plus my Cobra slip-on keeps all of em awake...

Set a date for sometime in the Spring and if we can make the ride we will be there. Would love to meet some other Strat riders.

Just got the tank off mine today and installed K&N... Man that is a huge motor. It looks real big with tank off... I sometimes refer to this as "riding a locomotive" when I try explain to folks what riding a Stratoliner is like... Awesome powerband... love it.

I think it's so weird how everyone from Michigan explains where they're from by the shape of a hand lol. I get it that the state is shaped like a hand, but it still seems weird to me.

Went down to Detroit today !!!to look at a job haven't been down there in a while, Oh My God!! ,like a war zone !!!!burned out houses!!!! stripped houses!!! ,windows out!!!, freaking terrible !!!!hate to see it happen !!!!come on back D !!! Not what I remember growing up and running around down there!!! inside of the city is very nice !!!but outside look out you will get yourself killed!!! Fo sho!!! Hopefully now that were making money in Michigan again we can clean it up and start new there I think there's a lot of good people trying to make it right but enough about that I would be open to meet up with some of my brothers from Michigan and not take a ride it would be good times!!!

late spring perhaps? We can also tie the meet up into a preexisting ride around here, (for example, Blessing of the bikes in Belleville on may 18th)
