Sounds good to me for a meet up sometime this summer.

The school I'm in is actually the only shining light left in DPS. We've gained students, just got done with a 48 million dollar remodel, new technology, and we jumped a full percentage point on out ACT scores.

Well, that's good to hear!

I'll post up a thread when it gets warm about for us to all get a southern Michigan meet up together.

We should all meet in Lansing this summer.

I'd also like to do something like I use to do back in my BMW days, we did a gigantic meet at the Woodward cruise which was a great turnout. This past year we had 20+ bikes, but I think a zx6r specific meet would be fun.

I would be down to meet up on a Sunday in the summer. I did just put my first 70 miles on the odometer the other day, it was a whopping 43 degrees but the rain has washed the salt off the roads and I wanted give her a proper break in ride, it was great aside from my numb fingers and toes!

I head over for "the dream cruise" almost every summer and would definitely be up for meeting there this summer.

Anyone interested in meeting up somewhere near Lansing once the weather get's nicer, subscribe here and we'll just set it up through this thread - that way nobody interested will miss the announcement if we make a new thread.

I'm a little confused as well, but whatever...at least around the GR area here, most of the roads are pretty terrible - where there's not still salt and sand, there are potholes

Well the roads that recently got redone are pothole free .
Older roads are trashed. The places I go most often are going to be just fine when I start riding all the time again when it gets a tad warmer

Where are you from that they already got around to taking care of the potholes?

At this time of year that is all they can do. Its called a Cold Patch. Until the weather warms up, fixing potholes right now is just a matter of slapping some asphalt in there because the ground temperature isn't high enough yet for the patch to "cure".

Temporary band-aids....that generally get forgotten about when it actually comes time to repair them....

I am far from taking the bike out until its like 55*, my hands just get too cold. The roads are looking better, but still dangerous. I agree to meet up during the summer, tried to do this last year but everyone that expressed interest bailed. Stay safe out there and my bike is finally almost back together.
