Hicksville was preparing for a parade but it had not started yet:
Main Street Hicksville, Ohio
I'd planned on going due north into Michigan but a couple of riders didn't have their helmets with them so I decided to head for Angola for "gas and gas". Lunch and fuel. We rode to Angola, Indiana to McDonald's, of course. After buying fuel I decided to head west, but then changed my mind, and decided to ride northeast to Clear Lake. Clear Lake is a very pretty lake with many sailboats and water skiers:
The guys parked while I took pictures:
After we rode half way around Clear Lake, we headed west. We rode on some very nice roads all the way to Orland, Indiana. We stopped in Orland and I programmed my GPS for the quickest was to Columbia City as I wanted to head south and go home. For some reason, my GPS took us south and then east to I-69 and south on I-69. We got off I-69 at the US 6 exit (they were doing rode construction on I-69) and rode to Garrett for ice cream. We then rode south to Columbia City, Huntington, and home. I think the reason my GPS took us off secondary roads (the ones we like to ride) and onto the Interstate was the mode was set on "Motorcycle" and not "Scooter" where I usually have it set. In "Scooter" mode it won't take you on Interstate Highways.
We had a nice time and ride. I rode 291 miles
Riders today were: Larry Burke, Larry Miller, John Nave, Billy Niverson, Art Adrianson, and myself.
