2014 Harley trip

Hi guys, firstly don't know where the year has gone, kids getting married, new grandchildren etc, so haven't been on the site too much, Josi and I are flying into Chicago tomorrow(thurs), picking the bike up fri and off up into northern Michigan across to Wisconsin, looping back to Chicago, never been up that end before, going to fly across to Toronto and see the falls before flying back to uk, as I always ask any pointers to things to see/do on route? And of course if I bump into you on route I,ll buy you a beer, hello to all our west coast buddies, hope everyone is healthy. Dave and josi

Ever been in Michigan before at all? There's a lot of nice places in the lower part of Michigan ..... Traverse City, Charlevoix, Petoskey, Mackinaw City, Mackinac Bridge, Mackinac Island, not to forget the U.P. of Michigan. Northern Michigan (Michigan overall) just a beautiful place during summer.

Good Luck on your journey, be safe and have fun

Trip update

Sorry bob, been a bit slack with pics, Josi will take some tomorrow with the iPad, got into rhinelander, rain all the way! Josi was so cold, down to 9 degrees not fun! Should have the worst of the weather out of the way, shame as the ride would have been good, can't odds nature I suppose! Dave & josi

Trip update

Currently in Appleton, another cold ride today, little wet at the end, whilst we were at rhinelander there were snow flurries! Wtf! Weather has really screwed us this year, going to the Harley museum tomorrow on route to overnight in Naperville for Josi shopping! At the outlets, bike back Sunday and then to Toronto see the falls before flying back. Dave and Josi bob should be a couple of pics on there, Josi is under all those layers!
