Who would be interested?

I'm really wanting to do this ride sometime next year. I'm thinking it would be over the course of 3 - 5 days, I'd like to really like to have the evenings to chill. I'm thinking the whole trip would be motocamping, instead of hotels, so strap that tent. It would be really cool if some others could come along, should be an awesome ride.

more than happy to join you, but... your 1500 miles away (give or take a couple hundred..) LOL

If I was still in the detroit area, I would jump on it in a heartbeat

Garage
I am only 800+ miles from point "A".....lol

I would love to ride out and meet up with you and the "buckeye bunch" for a nice trip one day.
I got to plan a week or two off and just ride cross country meeting up with other members...That would be my type of vacation.

Only 800 miles. You coud totally come up and then rest for a day or so, then come do the ride.

Hmm, less the 300 miles to get to point A....

I'd definitely be up for it if the timing works out.

......I'd rather wake up in the middle of nowhere then in any city on earth.

Hey Awesome let's start looking at times. I'm thinking it would for sure need to be more towards June or July, so it doesn't get too chilly. I mean it's already hitting the 50's at night here, and in the Southeast part of the state. The UP will for sure be a bit chillier.

That looks like it would be an awesome ride. But, like the other Texas boys - it's a bit far from me
