Dressed for a ride around the top of Lake Michigan
« on: October 11, 2017, 01:56:39 AM »
Just packed up for an 1100 mile jaunt to wind down the 2017 riding season. 2015 purchased new last spring as a two year previous model. Got a great price, I'm over the moon  :2:

That's a giant bag for a 3-4(?) day ride! Camping?

Have fun!

October in Michigan has a wide range of weather. I packed for low 80's to the low 30's. And rain. I rode through a half day of heavy rain and wind. Some things are bound to shake out of the bag on subsequent trips. I'll pack less with experience and high quality upgrades to gear  :002:

My brother is in the oil industry and is working at the moment in Manistique,MI. He just posted this photo on his Facebook...Says it looks more like an ocean than a lake....

I drove right past the spot in your brothers photo on Saturday. That day we enjoyed hard rain and very strong winds all morning. I could see my buddy on a Goldwing in my rearview mirror, leaning at a crazy angle :)
