I spent last week in the Michigan U.P. in a cabin without electricity.No TV,no cell phone service just hanging out and doing a little trail riding. When I went to the town of Paradise I saw this bike outside of the general store.Now this is a hard core biker. Check out the plate , we are up at Lake Superior and that's a 250 Honda.
I'd have done it on my Rebel in a heartbeat. When I had mine I was the one trying to convince my step dad and his friends to make the ride rather than trailer to the Honda Hoot. The bikes involved were my Rebel, a VTX1300, an Intruder Volusia, and a Shadow Spirit 1100. In retrospect, its probably better that we trailered rather than rode given the interstate manners of the Rebel, but I sure as hell wanted to make the ride.
It was rather calming, in the morning I'd stand on the pier toss out a line for an hour or two.Read a couple of books, you had to be careful what time you walked on the beach because at certain times there were enough black flies to carry you off. All in all it was a good time.
I do that several times a year. I trailer to a Cabin on the lake in the rolling hills of East Ms. It's only 150 miles so why trailer?? Because, I always have 3 casting rods in the back seat of my Ranger. I take my food supply, I lay around and read, and I do a little mud hole-ing with my 4wd.
