Cannon ball run

I believe 70+ pre 1930 bikes will be ariving in Mil. WI. in the evening of sept9th.

They will be taking the ferry from MI. and stay the night in Mil.

I don't have any FACTS maybe someone could help find a link?

I thought a day in the park near the ferry exit could be fun.( did I just say that?)

Cool sunday ride I thought.

Talking with a friend earlier this evening about riding up to Milwaukee on Sunday to meet these guys as they come off the Ferry or at the Harley Davidson Museum where there is supposed to be a reception for them.
I saw a bunch of the bikes and riders at Davenport last Friday at the AMCA meet. There are going to be several bikes over 100 years old on this run.
If you want to join us for the ride up to Milwaukee I'll let you know what our plans are as soon as we pull them together.

If you want to anger a conservative, tell him a lie. To anger a liberal all one must do is tell the truth!

On the HD Museum web page under events the Cannonball Run is listed for this Sunday.
The event starts at noon with live music but the Cannoball riders don't arrive until 6:30 PM. Likely that means they'll be on the 6:15 Ferry from Muskegon.
Here's a link to the museum web site:

Click on the Explore and then Events.
