Making Grand Canyon replicas from air boxes...

I got a good deal on a 2-night stay at a bed & breakfast on the west side of Michigan, but only during the off-season and mid-week (we would have preferred to go about 2-3 weeks earlier if we had a choice). I convinced my wife to take the motorcycles. This was her first trip on her FZ6R.
Here's some pics (I'm too lazy to include them all directly in this post).
If it wasn't for the cold crappy weather on day 2 (45°, cloudy and 20mph winds) and the equally cold last half of the ride home on day 3, she would have really enjoyed the trip. With my giant VStream windshield and heated grips, even I was experiencing some discomfort. She has a tiny windshield and no heated grips, plus she absolutely hates being cold. Her whole body what sore from shivering by the time we got home. We've had a touring windshield on back-order over a month now that would have helped a lot on this trip.
Day 1 was the best. Temps in the mid 60's and sunny. Day 3 was sunny and got into the mid/upper 50's. We found that right around 55° is the wife's temperature limit for complete comfort. All things considered, it was actually a pretty decent motorcycle trip for November in Michigan.
