GL1200 is in shed tore down to frame right now, needs Stator and Rebuild forks. Rode GL1800. I was a bit disappointed because it seems as though the route is not as grown over as it used to be. There seems to be more homes there than 30 years ago.

The tunnel of trees is just north of Interlochen MIchigan and not too far south of Traverse City on Lake Michigan. There is a great motorcycle campground very near to there. Its called Cyclemoore campground. They cater to bikers. GREAT PLACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We used to have a cottage near there on the Manistee river between Manton and Mesick. Near the Baxter bridge.

The only thing I could hear in the vidio was the rattle when you hit a bump. The transmission sounded good to me.

Glad to here my Tranny sounds good :D The GoPro cam is in a waterproof housing and does not pick up any other sound where I mounted it. (right mirror housing) At the point where we first start out and have to stop for crossing pedestrians, my wife made a comment about why we had to stop at the cross walk that never came up in the video.

I would like to add some music or commentary to further videos but am waiting on better editing software. And I am waiting on some royalty free music.

WOAH!!!!! Thanks for the ride. Fantastic. The mid west, sure is a pretty part, of this BEAUTIFUL country. I haven't been out, for 2 days, (on my 1200A) I like the back roads, as well. This made up for that...... Ride Safe :D Nothern Calif. Sonoma County.
