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.

Thank you for you review. I get excited when I get repeat customers. Riding in the rain just adds another element to your experience, as long as it's not pouring and unsafe. By the way, the towel was complimentary. Thank you again for your business.
