Places of interest for future trips

Okay just wanted to keep a running tab on ideas.
Passed by some things driving around in the dadmobile while the kids napped.

This is real.

This has to be one of the single worst custom paint jobs I've ever seen in my life. And, I'm sure this guy paid a lot of money for it, or girl. I can't decide if a man or woman owns it now. I'm not even totally sure what the theme is supposed to be or what it means... Judging by the PT Cruiser & the 80's Porsche, could be a homo or a washed up porn star.
 "I'm flaming hot, but sometimes I'm so cold it burns & I also win races for breast cancer awareness" Is the title of this piece of art work.
I'm mean, it is for sale if someone here would like to purchase.
They spent a lot of money on a lot of good parts to build this bike.
Maybe they'll knock 5k off the asking price since it needs to be striped & repainted.
Your thoughts?

Tahquamenon Falls State Park

Here is what I'm thinking.
5+ hours of riding to get to the campsite.
Explore everywhere on foot. Adventure. only get on bikes to ride into town. Adventure.

Now that I'm shedding weight, I want to do more stuff. We used to love just taking off into the woods. Might find out that its different in our mid thirties that what we remembered, but I want to try.

God forbid we burn an actual calorie on one of these trips.

Might be a good way to scope out campgrounds and parks for future family trips. You really should bust H's Yoop cherry.

DNR site for the park here.
More links for the park and area here, here, here, and here.

Good bit of riding and then just hanging out without helmets on.

Just a thought.

The Flathead (published from the Mayor's drafts)

So, this is it. It's in really good shape for being over 60 years old.

Motor turns over nice and smooth by hand. Started tearing down the upperend tonight. Got the carb, intake, generator & bracket, oil filter housing, fuel pump and the heads off. Looks like its never been rebuilt, which is a bonus, and I see no critical damage either. Going to start cleaning parts up and ebaying them next.

Getting ready (published from the mayor's drafts)

Getting the bike ready. New plugs, tent on bars, crash guards and highway pegs re-done. installed petcock repair kit, but now it seems to still not work right. In fact I think it's worse.
12v Acc plug.
