Evan came over last night and drew up a whole slew of these bad ass RV dreams i've been having. In case you didn't know, Evan works as an automotive designer for GM, so this sketch literally took him all of about 4 minutes. Oh, and I spent about 2 hours coloring it all in, ha!

Man oh man what a trip. Stared with Duke hatching the plan some months ago for all of us to ride around Lake Michigan. All of us signed on, and then all of us dropped out one by one. Not to be let down, Duke sets out to do it weather he's going solo or not, and then suddenly we all get motivated once more to make it all happen. Four out of the five bikes broke down in some way or another, each one with its own headaches and level of severity, but we all made it home some how. I can't really explain the roller coaster of events that took place over that weekend, but they were extreme and many. High highs dotted with low lows, but all in all it was a blast of a trip and its pretty rare that I get to ride with any of my friends because so few of them actually ride bikes, so getting to ride five deep and cover some of the most beautiful land in our state was a real treat. God Bless Northern Michigan, and God Bless motorcycles. Long Live the Road Couch Mother Ship!

Kelly left today to meet up with our good friend Duke at the border of Michigan's U.P. and Wisconsin. They're gonna do some shredding around the U.P. for a few days, then i'll peel off early Friday to blast up I-75 and cross to bridge to meet them just before sun-down Friday night. Saturday includes riding down the Tunnel of Trees and into TC for lunch, then camping the night possibly on the island at Tippy Dam. What a blast its gonna be! Can't believe this will only be my first time up north this summer... but it will be a good one, and a great time to log some miles next to a good friend whom I rarely ever get to see, let alone ride with. Oh yeah, and crossing the Mighty Mac is always a thrill!
