Wireguy51 and Corkster52 take a tour

Post by MiWinger51 »



Had a great day today. I met a new riding buddy through Goldwing Docs. Corkster52 rode up from Ohio and we took a tour of the Thumb of Michigan. A great day for a ride made even more special by making a new friend.

Corkster52 drove up to my house in Clio, Michigan from his home in Perrysburg Ohio. After introductions and a quick breakfast where we learned about each other, we took off to take a day tour of thumb region of Michigan. We headed north through farmland and got on M-25 just east of Bat City. M-25 follows the shoreline of Lake Huron. We followed it to Port Hope, stopping at numerous parks along the way. At that point we headed back home following many different roads as we meandered home. Corkster52 then rode back to Ohio. He arrived home safely at around 7:30. It was a great day for a ride.

Detdrbuzzard, it is a nice,area to ride. If you want to arrange a ride PM me, maybe we can make a day of it. Corkster wants to meet up in southcentral Michigan and explore that area, maybe we could do a triple.

It was a great day for a ride and a great opportunity to meet a really decent guy in Wireguy51. We found we had so many things in common it was almost scary :o We will definitely be doing more rides together. Thanks for posting this thread Al. I look forward to future adventures with you.

Don't mean to butt in, the south central Michigan ride sounds nice, i visited hell last fall, and would like to revisit the area us 12 is a nice stretch thru the Irish hills, and many curvy two lanes in that area as well. Keep me posted if you pick a date!

Sounds great! AL, as I mentioned before, I need to get down to Alabama to see my sister late this month or early next month, but other than that I'm all in whenever it works for the rest.
