Few deer or night time critter worrys when you're in a solid pack and the lead is 20 minutes ahead of you. It's a hell of a big gathering. Leaves the Meijers parking lot, US131 in Rockford Mi at Midnight and slowly winds its way north picking up small groups and entertaining late night revelers along the way. Crosses The Mackinac Bridge right around 8 a.m. A few hours of sleep and a good meal followed by local riding and a light parade (GoldWings and lights? yeah dime a dozen ya know) down the main drag of St Ignace that night. I'd recommend it at least once to those considering it.
