Sleeping Bear National Park, leaving today!

My gal and I are heading north to the tropical haven known as "Sleeping Bear".
I'll be on the "V" and she'll be driving with the camping gear.
Do some riding (M-22 here i come!), do some Kayaking, and weather permitting-a whole lot of laying about on the sandy beaches of our great white north.
Might even run up to the straights of Mackinaw and do a bridge crossing.
But in the end...it's 8 days of doin' nothin'.
life don't get much better.

So if your on the road...watch for "the Green Hornet"...that would be me.
(pictures to follow)
Be well.
Ride safe.
Peace.

Have fun! My wife has followed in the car before, but that was mostly because she couldn't stay away as long as I could. It is nice having the car if a heavy rain comes through and you still want to go out and do something without having to gear up with rain gear.

We are back to civilization.....and what a week it was.
The new "Conti's" are amazing indeed! ( as is the new rear sprocket ).
As for riding the 'M-22'...It was two wheel heaven. To finally truly put the "V" through it's paces on roads it was designed for was a the experience of a lifetime.
Best of all...these righteous roads are right in my own back yard...I shall return!
Traffic was nearly non-existent, and the curves just kept coming and I even did a bit-o-off-roading....believe it or not!

From Manistee to Northport and beyond....nothin' but "PURE MICHIGAN" !
(kinda makes me all misty eyed just thinking bout it)

Hey Rick....8 days of doing nothin' is indeed the best..especially when it's spent with the one you love.....and I'm not talking about the "V"

Best of all...we go back for ten days at the end of July
