Overview

We will meet you at you cruise ship and go to where the bikes are. The best way to get away from the crowded downtown area is on a motorcycle. Go beach combing, visit Ward Lake, Watch eagles and smell the fresh air. Some days the air may be a little wetter then some but, all in all its awesome here.

Thank you for your great review. You two had the biggest smiles I have seen this season. The rain, (if you have experience riding in it) just adds another element to the adventure. You both were such troopers.
