Back to Port Huron

Post by detdrbuzzard »



i left home this morning at 07:50, it was only 64f so i wore a light weight fleece under my Joe Rocket jacket to have some warmth and an extra sox on my right foot. i picked up a Shoei neotec 2 helmet Thursday so i wore it ( i also wore it Friday evening ). it fits me well but the drop down sun shade is too light at least it is to me and its most likely priced out of reach for most folks, i got it for $100 less and thats still a lot of cash. i rode north from home and east on Outer drive then north on Livernois but Marvin was being washed out by the sun

it was a short drive up to m-102, once there i headed east and then north on m-3. being so early there wasn't much traffic, my only slow down was a little construction near Mount Clemons, MI. i made a right turn on m-29 so i could stop in Marine City, MI. and get some pic's of this

leaving there i rode over to Thomas Edison park to see if i could spot a laker but had no luck so i rode over to m-25 and found a cell phone store, bought a charge cord there then reversed course for home. i stopped in Marine City again to see if i could get a better pic
