    Default Upcoming Ride in May

    In the early stage of organizing a motorcycle ride up into Wisconsin and Michigan for a Saturday in the month of May. This would be a all-day ride with plenty of rest stops along the way. It is not a overnight trip. Early morning depart time. All makes of bikes are welcome. Should be a great scenic ride and a fun trip with friends. Please message me if interested.
    More details to follow.

    Details are still being finalized with some corporate sponsors but an approximate ride cost will be between $150-175 per rider. Price of ride includes a catered buffet-style lunch during the transport phase of the ride as well as ****tails and door prizes which should make for a nice afternoon break. There will be meeting points along the way for riders that are spread out in the four states that we are riding through in case they want to join us for the complete ride or just a portion of it.
    If mother nature cooperates, we hope to be logging in this 400+ mile ride in June.

    Weather pending, we are tentatively attempting a trial run on Saturday, May 11th. I'll be keeping my eye on the forecast and make the final call on Thursday evening. Departure time for NW Indiana would be 9am. 1st stop needs to be achieved by 12 noon. All PM's have been replied to.

    Sorry, can't make that one. We've been looking to do this quad-state ride for the past year. Maybe next time.

    Looks like the weather will not be the greatest for this ride on the 11th. Tentatively pushing it back to the 25th and see how it goes from there. Thanks to all that have PM'd.

    Unfortunately, we will have to push back the date for the Quad-State ride to June 8th, due to an uncooperative weather forecast for this Saturday.
    All PM's will be replied to and updated as well.
    Thank you to all that have made donations as well. It is for a great cause.

    Sounds good. I should have three coming along with me and between 8-10 more from surrounding burbs. There are a few from Wisconsin & Michigan coming down to meet us as well.

    Meet spots will be determined a few days before the ride and are based on how many riders there are and where they are coming from in order to make it easy for everyone to meetup and join the main group. Route will be basically along the shoreline through the states except for when we get into Wisconsin. There will be a little added surprise for that state.

    I'll keep you posted. Thanks for the reply.

    Unfortunately, having pushed the ride back twice now puts it in June, along with wedding & graduation season. Some of the other riders are also having to cater to prior commitments. Our numbers may be smaller but as long as the weather holds up, we'll push this ride through. We may reschedule the larger corporate sponsored event to the end of the season in late September.
    Looking forward to having you if you can join us.
