Kudos Bert for both the idea and the layout. Well done!!!

The Shark Doctor's description of Michigan riding is so very well put that I do not think it is possible to be improved.

If I remember correctly Jeff said that he would be in Baldwin MI the week of the blessing, I will be looking for the Shark bike to see it in person. That is a beautiful paint job and great looking bike.

Beautiful bike!
I'll be riding along with him on the Lake Erie circumnavigation run. I'll be looking forward to seeing that bike in person.



Oh yeah...and the owner.

Nice job on the page also, Bert.
