I was born and raised in the Detroit area , left when I was 19, those pics bring back some good memories. 8)
I saw the Supremes I think at the Fox, and saw the Beatles at Cobo Hall (My memory of those times is a bit blurry 8) ) Actually got in a pretty good fight on Belle Isle but did get my nose busted up pretty good. :evil:
About Halloween is when it starts getting cold back there , have fun!!!

Ynot, I was down on Belle Isle yesterday. That pic must have been from yesterday cause that Frieghter was in the exact same spot when I was there at about 2:30pm yesterday afternoon. When were you down there?

No I wasn't riding. I was on my way down to Riverview hospital for business and thought, humm, I haven't been on Belle Isle in a while so I thought I'd take a drive around it. Then after getting on the island and I saw that view of the skyline and that Freighter, I had to stop. So I walked down to the water and sat on one of those big concrete blocks down there for about 15 minutes. It was beautiful! Didn't see or hear a bike though. And actually it was more like 2pm that I was there.

I was just after you get on the island. On the right side. That picnic was on the other side of the bridge. Man they must have had 30 guys playing that football game eh?
