Riding out to NASSIR 4and back with Winger just didn't seem to fill my need/lust for touring this summer. :?


I'm repacking the bike again, after off loading my gear from spending the July 29 - Aug 1 weekend atmy Riding Group's National Rally in Ottawa. My Chapter was well represented at the Rally

I'll be heading out tomorrow(Thursday) morning @ 4 am, bound for a Meet N Greet from Aug 5 - 7,in Interlochen, MI. with members of another Forum I frequent.

Then I'll be heading back out to the West Coast for the 2011 WCWNJMRwith various forum members, before I head down the CA Coast and then swing Eastward for ES7 in Eureka Springs, AR for the Labour Day weekend with the Rinos. After that, I'llthen swing down to stay with a friend in Atlanta for a while, before heading North to the North Eastern M & G in Front Royal, VAat the end of September.

Youi can follow my progress by clicking on the "Follow Dusty with Spot" link in my sig line below.

Hope you all have a safe summer and if you see me riding across the country somewhereon my 'Ole Girl, wave and maybe flagg me down for a coffee and chat.

I camped at Cycle-Moore just last week with a group of riders from my other forum group too! Is that where you will be staying while in Interlochen?



We were on a "roaming gnome" type relay. We've been handing off the gnome (actually a Godzilla figure, Japanese bikes ya know!) for the last 135 days and 14,000 miles. Started at Daytona bike week and will hit all 48 contiguous states and the lower tier of provences too.

Yes, a bunch of us from MotoCampers.com will be gathering at Cycle-Moore for the weekend and doing some 'ride outs', exploring the area. :congrats:

Hot showers and free WiFi are included with the paltry $6/night fee. :gunhead:

Will do, Baggy ... maybe get Wayne to pop up to the BRMC for a couple of days along with you(?)
I'll give you a few days 'lead time' notice before I plan to move from Atlanta, up towards Etowah, en route to riding the Cherohala over to the BRP and stay at the BRMC

Am on the final leg of my summer journey... No where nearly as ambitious as yours, but for my first road trip, I've had fun... Should be a touch over 8K by the time I roll in the drive...

Ride safe and enjoy...;)

Greetings. :waving:

I have been camped at Cycle-Moore, in Interlochen, MI. since Thursday.

Pulled out of home @ 4:12 and rode the 952km/596mi in 14hrs. They were doing bridge maintenance on the bridge between the 2 Soos and it took me over 1.25hrs to cross that short span!!:whip:

20 minutes after stating out, I 'lost' both headlights. Thank God for my Aux Driving lamps. Turned out I blew the 15 amp fuse by running both headlights on both the High/Low beams by running the switch in the 'sweet spot' between H/L. Could be fuse fatigue(?) ANyway that was a quick fix, later that evening at camp

I rode the tunnel of trees and bypassed Traverse City, arriving at C-M's at 6:10

We rode around the Peninsula, including Sleeping Bear Dunes NP, up to Northport and back, enjoying the sights. Good day's ride(125mi), taking 7 hrs to complete the loop, including stops.

Heading out on Monday to Salaomonie Lake, SW of Fort Waaaayne, IN

Hey Dusty,

Will you be riding thru the Kalamazoo/Battle Creek area? If yes, what time? I don't know if ur looking for companion riders, but if the time works out, I could possibly putt along with ya for a few miles.
