No one has mentioned this yet, this trip is always a blast! A few of us were thinking of doing this trip the weekend after labor day weekend.. Sept 9th I believe?

So, who's up for it?

ooh...I might be in. Is this a full weekend trip or just a one day shot? Is this even comfortable on the bike? I'm just nervous about being fatigued and the long ride back.

-=bmacd=-
A-ron and I did this ride together last year and it's way to far to go up and back in one day after spending the whole day on rides.

wobbler erik if you fly that plane like you pull standup wheelies then you should make sure to have barf bags for everyone :twofinger

Well, since I'm so entitled to respond to this one....

The way you ride that busa, you'd be better off hitching a ride with a semi-truck driver, at least they don't slow down on 696 because of the "Curves" POW:twofinger POW:twofinger

Yes this is a 1 1/2 day trip. Like Wayne said, it is too long a day to ride back after being at the park all day. We usually stay at the Holiday Inn(?) right next to the Applebee's about a 1/2 hr from the park. Wayne and Bluto and I made some friends last year!! :D It's always a good time! Some people like to stop and get fireworks on the way back too, and stick them in their trunk next to the NOS bottle!

Labor Day

Yes, Labor Day is the 5th and the Friday after Labor Day would be the 9th.

Sounds good. We will most probably have to leave at 7:00AM on Saturday and head down for the park opening. I love the National Anthem and then its ride time.

I heard that the Demon Drop is up for sale and this may be the last year for it.

Pilot station at I75 exit 18 Nadeau Road. Leave at 7:00AM??

I280 is open all the way to Route 20 going South. It is still closed going North at Front Street. So we can take Route 2 or the Turnpike.

What do you all think?

Hotel

The Hotel is for the night after all the rides.

Ride home refreshed. That is unless you draw the floor.

7am at exit 18! thats like 45 minutes from home.. Not happening for me. I dont operate at 5-7am. You certainly wouldnt want me operating a high performance motorcycle at those hours. I havent talked to T-bone yet but if we're going, Ill post up another alternate time to leave.. say 8-9am in the Royal Oak area. Isnt the park open until 11pm or something. Thats like 12 hours of Rides. Ill have an answer tonight .. hopefully

Hotel Again

Ok, I'm on Orbitz and there is availablity at the Rodeway Inn Cedar Point South. 54.95 for the night Non-Smoking with 2 Double Beds. Cedar Point is a mile away. This does not include taxes.

Single Double Beds are 49.95 a night.

They have a pool.

Just a thought.
