    Don't forget the battle creek mini-rally. It's sometime April-may I don't remember exactly.

    I ride one of the "antique bikes"
    It usually conflicts with the Georgia Mountain rally (GMR), so check that date >> GMR is April 29, May 1

    Notice to the Chairman

    Hi John,

    I live in West Bloomfield, MI and have a 2009 K1300S like your "Zoot". Here's mine... what's your trio look like?

    Welcome GALA .

    If you get up north west of Ionia (Cadillac/Manistee) drop me a line...I know a few good roads.

    BTW, the folks at BMW Grand Rapids will take good care of you.
    Attitude is everything!

    Anyone is welcome ...

    I am in Ludington and plan to do a Superior loop in late May. Anyone is welcome. I'm thinking of going up to Copper Harbor then through Wisconsin and Minnesota and into Ontario to Thunder Bay. I will ride the Superior shoreline through Canada and back down into Sault Ste Marie on the northeast side of the upper peninsula. Any company would be great.

    Take good notes and post a ride report when you do. I'll be going around Superior counter clockwise in late June from SOO to Duluth, then west to the UP before heading south. Advice on campgrounds, hotels and eateries appreciated.

    My wife doesn't take long trips like this so our youngest daughter, Amanda, will be riding pillion on my bike. She is the only one scheduled to make the whole trip with me. I have two buddies planning on going as well but neither can make the whole loop. I anticipate it will take 7-10 days for the trip. It could be done in less but I want to see the sights along the way.
