Thank you to all. I'm a Detroit native - born and raised - now living just outside the city proper. I've spent most of my life in the motorcycle industry, just not as my full time profession. That includes working part time at a few local dealerships, attending dealer expos/meetings, working with a few clothing manufacturers and, of course, the racing. Very strong and life-long ties to the track. I still follow MotoGP and World Superbike very closely. I truly believe if motorcycles enter our mindset and bloodstream and take hold - we never lose that passion.
Yes unstable, Michigan DOES
have some decent scenic areas, especially well
away from the metro-Detroit area. Although Michigan roads pale compared to the photos I've seen of more temperate regions of our country. Cross the Mackinaw Bridge into the U.P., turn left and about 30 miles later, Hog Island? Yeah...that's the ticket!
TEN years and about 150,000 miles (among THREE V 650s) later...
Oh my...impressive! They must be good bikes.
Looking at your brief intro, i don't think you will ever regret getting a Versys
And the more I investigate and read, the more I'm inclined to agree, Fastoman. There could very well be a white LT in my future sooner than I think!
I'm waiting for a couple dealers to assemble their 2018 bikes so I can "scratch and sniff".
And the owner of one indicated he will probably permit a short demo ride. Fingers crossed.
What I'd like to do quickly is restore my "third party sharing" ability so I can post photos. I was using PhotoBucket but $
ince they now charge for their $
ervice, I'm looking elsewhere.
