Beautiful weather, fantastic roads, two tire changes, one crash, one equipment failure, awesome barbecue, and over 48 hours of travel time took eight of us through almost 800 miles riding in Texas for one of the more epic trips in the history of the Ford Motorcycle Club.
I embedded some photos within the ride report, but there were a lot more photographs taken during our trip. Seems like everyone wants to share their photos via a different service (Google Photos, Snapfish, Shutterfly, Drive, etc.), so I’ve consolidated everything I’ve been able into a single gallery here where it belongs!
The “Ruining” of a Youngster by George Adams
This is one rider’s story of how his motorcycling passion evolved throughout his lifetime (with pictures)…
Our annual Winter Dinner was held on Saturday January 14th, 2017 at Karl’s Cabin in Plymouth, MI.
I was helping a little bit with the 2017 FMC Calendar, and I thought it might be nice to be able to set my desktop background to some of the photographs that have been taken for our monthly contest.
Eight riders + Mother Nature got together on a brisk Saturday morning for a 90+ mile tour of some of North-East Oakland Counties best tree covered sweepers.
5 riders showed up for a short run from the Plymouth K-Mart to J.S. Fields. The ride was mostly Hines Drive but heading east so no setting sun shining in our eye to hide the fall colors that are starting to emerge. We took a jaunt north up through Rouge River Park on the Outer Drive sweepers then back south the way we came.
Day 1, Friday 10/7/2016
George A., Dale B., Ollie D., Mark G., John & Barb J., Al M., Charles R., and Joe & Sherri S. met at the Pilot Travel Center in Monroe, MI Friday morning. The weather was clear and in the 60s with high to be near 80. After filling up and a quick briefing we took I-75 south to I-280 then OH-420 to US-250 east then OH-60 south. Al M. rode with us down to Ashland, OH where he peeled off. We got gas in Hayesville, OH and took a rest. This was the longest leg of the day at 124 miles.
