Great post, I may consider doing this because my 2014 gold wing Valkyrie gave me that very problem last year on vacation.

Re: a great lakes sweep

Congratulations on your recent award. I have completed three 1,000 mile Iron Butt rides over the years and enjoyed the challenge.
I would like to add Lake Erie to the list, maybe this year.
