  1. they are the smaller ones, the 8.3mm don't be tempted by the cheaper ones, they are made out of butter!, the average gas station air line will eat them! also, if you can find the 60 deg., instead of the 90, it works way better on the rear wheel! the 90 causes a clearance issue with a lot of gas station air jacks, you either have to mount them turned slightly toward the outside of the wheel, or hope the airline has a short chuck. ( I dated his sister there for a little while!) You will be tempted to mount them at a true 90 to the rim, don't they try to leak air if you do, I have found somewhere between 0 and about 45 degrees from C/L works and haven't had any issues with them leaking. I have them on every set of wheels I have for all my Victory's and other than the cheaper ones snapping OFF while trying to air them up in the middle of nowhere (yep as fun as it sounds!), have had no issues.

Call the Days Inn directly to reserve your room @ 231-723-8385 Since 2000, Victory Enthusiasts have met at the Great Lakes Regional Meet (GLRM) to exchange stories and share their passion for Victory motorcycles. What started as a small group is now a major meet and greet event attracting VMC folks from across the country. With this year signifying the 20th anniversary of the VMC, this event is especially important. Keeping in mind the traditions already laid upon us, this year's rally will move to the west shore of Michigan and pave the way for new traditions. The rally will focus on renewed interest in the VMC by focusing on the Victory brand and what it stands for. There will be guided rides on both Friday and Saturday that highlight the beauty of the Lake Michigan shoreline. There will also be offerings of “self-guided” rides for individuals to partake in. An ice-cream social on Friday will kick start the event followed by a pig roast on Saturday to round out the event. There will be plenty of time to socialize and enjoy all of what the VMC and the west shore have to offer. Folks will also be encouraged to explore the historic Victorian City of Manistee as well. Manistee area also has a multitude of offerings including the historical downtown region, shopping, sandy beaches, light house, casino, breweries, restaurants, diners, and easy access to M-22; one of Michigan’s most beautiful motorcycle routes. The name "Manistee" is from an Ojibwa word first applied to the principal river of the county. The derivation is not certain, but it may be from Ministigweyaa, "river with islands at its mouth." Other sources claim that it was an Ojibwe term meaning "spirit of the woods." Regardless of its exact meaning, the rally shall be named “Winding River Rally” to pay homage to the history of the region. This year we chose to support a local organization dedicated to “providing education and limited financial assistance” to cancer patients in the five-county area: Benzie, Lake, Manistee, Mason and Oceana counties. We plan to donate proceeds collected from the event to the Lakeshore Community Cancer Foundation which was named for the late Sally K. Johnson, former director of nursing at both West Shore Community College and Ferris State University. She was diagnosed with breast cancer, then treated; diagnosed with lung cancer, then treated; and eventually died of metastatic cancer. While undergoing treatment, she put the fund into motion. The foundation is recognized as a 501C-3 not-for-profit agency, and any donations made are tax-deductible. For more information about the fund or to apply (any adult diagnosed with cancer is eligible), call 239-4017 or email lakeshorecommunitycancerfund@gmail.com.

  3. Be very careful. There is not a lot of room between the fender and the tire. Many of us have torn out the wiring loom in the fender, bottoming out on the bike.

  4. Wazzup buttercup? I think either route is good, St Francis is always a great stop, no matter which way you go I am fine with it. If there is room at Lake Wilson for 1 tree hugging hippie, mark me down, (pretty sure you could get at least 3 in the shower), water is not a renewable commodity, the more we save now..... As you know I live to chuck dirty wrenches into clean machinery! Can't help it, it's just what I am good at!,,,but I believe the Elephant is closed on a Sunday, which is the day we are leaving the world center of feed lots, (Ft Morgan), and heading Mrs Simpsons place!!

  5. Welcome to all who are riding east from Fort Morgan. I'm looking for interest in stopping here: https://stfrancismotorcyclemuseum.org/home We stopped in 2019 and it's a great way to spend an hour. If everyone has seen this I will take a different route to the North along the Republican River on Highway 34. Either way we will stop at the Elephant in Hoxie for lunch: https://theelephantbistrobar.com/ Our place at Lake Wilson consists of 2 structures, the house has 4 separate bedrooms in the basement and has plenty of room. The bunkhouse has 2 bedrooms 1 consisting of 1 queen, 1 twin and 2 full size beds. the other has 2 queen and 2 twins. Nice big shower with enough room for 2 at a time if you want to save water! If you plan to make this leg or are coming from KC to ride the next one, please contact me about arrangements.
