Rode into Grand Rapids last night.

Took the Shadow500.
Went on road that somewhat follows the Grand River.
Overcast day, so good for pictures.






Took this picture by the old church for a "Picture Of The Week" game on another forum.


Destination was the Summer Blues free concert (put on by a radio station).
Walter Trout.

Was a chance of rain (40% one hour and 30% the next hour, which is typical around here when is hot and humid, 85F & 80%) so not as many mo'cykles as usual.
Picture of parking lot is about 1/8th the parking area for mo'cykles.
Most of the "bikers" hanging around in the parking lot or the beer vendor area, few at the concert stage area.

Most of the concert goers bring lawn chairs, and sit there and half pay attention, maybe talking, maybe fussing with phone online. I think they come every week just for a night out of the house, or something. I was there to go for a ride and to see Walter Trout.

Walter Trout has been there about every year for the last 6 or so years, well, except for the year he was sick, near death, awaiting liver transplant, that he did get. That year it was a benifit fund raiser concert to support his medical expences. (I bought a couple CDs). He said he keeps comming back to Grand Rapids to repay the favor (since they pay only about 25% of what he typically will get.)
The Walter Trout week is the one I want to go to each year, maybe might go to one other during the summer, but make a point to go the Walter Trout. Is great to see such a national tallent in such a small concert, with out having to go to some crowded bar or stadium. Oh, and did I say its free......
And amazing that he plays so hard, for so long.

Walter Trout was with the John Mayhall, and Canned Heat, and others, and somewhere in there I think Buddy Guy.
One time he said the 5 years with Canned Heat was responcible for about 80% of his liver.

Twice now I have heard him talk about when he was 17 years old and BB King came into the hardware store he was working at. He recognized BB and told him he was learning to play guitar and had bought some BBKing and other old time bluesman albums. He said BB stayed and talked to him for over an hour.

Did get rained on a little bit on way home.
But good rides, and good evening out.

Great pics and a great looking 500!

We have a several ride pic threads here
(See "The Official Picture Thread" and "Pics With Your Ride")
They make appearances for about a week or two at a time, then get buried again

But for more eventful trips or rides everybody just seems to make their own threads

Sometimes it seems like I'm arguing, that's just how I work out a solution:.. The other times I'm arguing.

One thread I have seen before seemed to be for more artistic photos.
Other thread seemed to be for pictures of the rider.
(If I am wrong, let me know.)

I was thinking more along the lines of any everyday ride, any pic along the way. Tell what you saw or what happened.
Even just a quick ride to grocery store and saw something in the parking lot. Or afternoon ride and found place to stop next to a lake.
Of course, bike in the picture.
Maybe a little description of what happened, or what you found interesting.

Seems like many folks expereince such every day.

Yah, for a long multi-day ride would deserve a seperate dedicated ride report thread for that rider.

2 weeks ago, my chapter of the Canadian Motorcycle Cruisers hosted the National Rally. We had 250 riders attend, and riders from both coasts. Top pic is me leading out the first ride on the Saturday, below it is some of the riders gathering.




Last nights chapter ride.
