Just wondering if any of my fellow Michiganders are out on the roads yet? I went for a very brief jaunt last week, but that's it for me so far. What about the rest of you?

Well, even without being in Michigan we have similar weather. Planning on going out today after school. BTW how do you teach your classes and also get on this site as often? (If you are wonderin the same for me... I am a multi-tasker ;) )

I'm at a school that has 7 class periods in the day (long-ass school day for these kids) and full time teaching is only 5 of those 7 periods, so I have two hours plus lunch during the day that I can use as I see fit :)

I went riding a few weeks ago when we had that 55+ degree weather. But haven't went out since. It's such a pain in the ass to wash the salt off the bike every single time I go out.

Yea I havn't been out yet either, damn salt is still all over the roads and pot holes the size of Buicks. I'm getting pretty close to saying screw it and taking it out. The winter that never ends. :(

Nitrus you work in a school as well? I work in DPS myself.

Yeah, everywhere I drive I think about trying to dodge all these pot holes on my bike once I get it out there...not feeling too excited about that. :hmmm:

Yeah, I teach at a charter high school in the GR area. How's your school fairing currently with all the budget cuts and student loss in DPS lately?

Well I am Mid state, over by near Flint. I'm always looking for local riders but never seem to find any.
We could maybe try to set up a mid-state meet-up sometime this summer so that people from both sides can meet in the middle and hang out, go for a little ride, eat, head our separate ways :O

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.

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.
