Janinja, Just north of Grand Rapids.

Please if you wanna ride, or hang out, i do both. Oh and for the record, starting last year, we are doing an annual Cedar Point Trip in August, ill have a stickey thread on that in a while if possible. Its a blast and the sooner we set a date the sooner everyone can plan around it.

Ferry?
I would imagine the toll to go under water, would be astronomical compared to a ferry ticket. Just to recoupe the cost of building it.

Mad Matt from just west of Three Rivers, MI in lake country about 20 miles south of Kalamazoo. One day I'll get to meet Janinja!

Join me sometime for the Coon Hollow Road invitational! As a bonus St. Joe's county has only 2 deputies on patrol any given time. ;)

The Coon Hollow Road Invitational is what we call it when a group of riders makes the run (and sometimes back, and again, and back, etc.) from Three Rivers to the Cass County line on Coon Hollow Road. It usually occurs on Sunday mornings when the decent folks are at church.

It's a great riding road that twists through some hills and over streams, through swamps and around some lakes, including the one that I live on. Sometimes I head into and back from work that way.

Everyone who tries it always wants to go back through a few more times. It's one of those courses that you don't get tired of. It's challenging enough that a few bikes crash each year, and the guys I know in the Fire Department tell me it's mostly been newbies on high powered machines. One tree still has pieces of CBR hanging in it from this summer. So we always take it real mellow first time through! You never know when someone might decide to drop hay everywhere.

And thats what we call the "Coon Hollow Invitational". You're invited if you are ever down this way.

Grand Rapids/Allendale during the school year. Go to Grand Valley State (Go LAKERS!)
You're joking me, I was JUST at Grand Valley this wednesday. I'm a transfer student starting there in the fall. Looks like I won't be the only 500r rider at Grand Valley now!!!
