my " up north " ? ride

Post by detdrbuzzard » Sat May 19, 2018 10:01 am



everyone in Michigan sez " i'm going up north " problem is no one seems to know how far north you have to go to be up north.
I rode the Mighty ST 1300 to henry's yesterday cause I wanted to go for a short ride once I left. my original plan was to go to Ohio and bum around but it seems i'm always in Ohio so I changed plans and decided to stay in Michigan. look couzinjeff rode his Mighty ST 1300 to henry's also

I left henry's about 14:50, it was73ºf with the wind coming in from the north and a sunny sky. I headed over to m-153 and took it east then picked up I-94, traffic was a little heavy on I-94 but it never came to a stop, I was ok with that. there was more of the same traffic on north bound I-75 until I got up into Pontiac, mi. when there was a couple of halts in traffic. back up to speed, rolling along at 80mph the Mighty ST 1300 was still showing 40mpg. good thing cause I left henry's with less than a half tank of fuel and maybe a gallon in the cell, still plenty to make my destination. I arrived in Zilwaukee around 16:50

I headed over to the Saginaw river for a pic before leaving and got a shot of the Zilwaukee bridge too

after leaving Zilwaukee I wanted to stay off the expressway but had to take I-75 south back to m-83. ah very little traffic but darn those round abouts that no one seems to know how to use, there were only two of them thank god. I took m-15 south and stopped in Vassar, mi. for fuel, topped off the tank and put just over two gallons in the fuel cell. I continued south on m-15 but I was ready to be back in the city so I jumped on I-75 and caught the end of rush hour traffic in troy, mi. I thought I would make a quick stop at a friends house, he had a m/c accident a few weeks ago and broke his collar bone so I ended up taking I-696 west and us-24 south to get to his place. he wasn't home so I took m-14 east to Schafer arriving home about 19:30 and the skis clouding over. 242 miles today
