Tossing around a trip idea..

I have yet to see professional racing in person. I am hoping to make a trip out to cali for the MotoGP round, but in reality that's probably not gonna happen.

I would however like to catch a race next season.

..... and I think i'd like to get a bike trip out of it as well. I was thinking mid-ohio... but I can't stand Ohio... so what would be even cooler would be riding to Ludington and taking the ferry over to WI. Have any of you other MI guys ever done that? I know it takes a few hours to get across the lake, but it seems like it would be pretty cool.


Do you WOS folk take a trip to any of the races within riding distance?

WOS goes to Mid-Ohio Races every year. Most of us ride there and somebody follows with a car and trailer for back up and luggage.

Check it out on the WOS forum for more details...I think there is a thread out on it?!?!?!

There's a new high speed ferry that goes across. I don't know all the details but when I was looking into a job in Milwaukee (yes, I almost moved out there a month ago), I was told they have a new high speed version that takes you across the lake. Just an FYI.

The MotoGP would be great. Love that part of the country. Wish I could figure out an economical way to get the bike out there.

Mojo- You ever ride 190 east out of Porterville? Kind of makes Deals Gap look tame. Need a parachute if you miss a turn.
