Those big open water ferry ships are much different than our river barge ferries.

Nice lookin' F Sean, but uhhhh, where d'ya get that piece of pie?
I've got some favorite eating spots along M22:
House of Flavors in Manistee
Cabbage Shed in Elberta
Joe's Friendly Tavern in Empire
Fischers Happy Hour near Leland

My favorite might be a PBJ at the roadside park near Arcadia:


Kevin, I took that exact picture last year when I rode my Wing around Michigan with Sean and MJstone during the Relay Rally. The scenery and riding during that stretch of the trip was amazing. Once I have another bike to ride (hopefully my 550 project sometime this summer, a trip up that way is on the agenda.

Danny, if things work out for me I'd hope to meet you on the relay ride this year. I have a luggage rack now and a hankering to do more than day rides. Arcadia is always on my list of places to go.

The way things are going with my project I may have to beg Sean or Eric to lend me a bike for this year. I really don't want to miss it.

Great area, heading up that way mid july to visit my wife's family. Won't have bikes with us this time unfortunately, I'd love to tear up #6 again. Nice pics by the way.

Thanks Steve-o, I'm really happy with the fresh paint on this old bike!

750k I feel really spoiled up here with the roads, I lived in burnaby for 4-5 yrs. found city riding very stressful.

I'm lucky to live so close to the country side. In about 20 minutes, I get to see sights like these few pics from my short, but sweet ride yesterday. Conyers, Ga is so lovely.

That second shot of the bike by itself is a definitely candidate for the 2015 SOHC4 calendar. I think it's time to get a thread going for that.
