well after staying out all nite partying until three i came home and promptly went to bed but woke up just before 7a. eariler in the week i was thinking about my lack of riding and ride reports this year. partly because of the heat and partly because i hadn't thought about where i wanted to ride to so this year i don't think i'll put on as many miles as last year. there was no bat masterson to watch on tv this morning so i told myself that i need to go for a good ride. by 7:30 i was cleaned up, dressed and out the door and on the 1500 wing. this wasn't a sight seeing ride, i took schafer north to I-96 and i_96 west to the left coast. traffic was light going west , didn't even seee a leo. the temp was in the mid 60's when i left which made for some nice riding. my only stop was for gas in the capitol city, lansing. i took I-196 south to holland, mi then jumpped on m-31 heading south which takes you through part of the city of holland before it puts you back on I-196.
