I'll be heading to Millwaukee WI during the thanksgiving weekend and have room for 1 bike if any body needs transport from the N.E area.

Champ. As most people in here know. I grew up in Milwaukee. Yes, I can't shut up about the place.

My brother says the HD museum is a must visit. If you are near the East side, you have to head over to Nomad's World Pub. http://www.nomadworldpub.com/flash.html
They have a huge selection of beer.

For bike parts, lots of vintage japanese parts and bikes, make sure you stop by Milwaukee Motorcycle Salavage. http://www.milwaukeecycle.com/index_02.htm

The last time I was there they had two pretty good CB77 they were willing to pratically give away. (I just had no space, time or money for them). My brother-n-law picked up a S90 for under $200. Just be willing to spend a few hours roaming around their storage shed.

its friggin cold here, don't forget your heavy jacket! while you're at the H-D museum, have a bite at the motor cafe. they've got some decent grub and mix some pretty mean cocktails! you can even see where my triumph left a big black stain on their orange parking lot :)

Hell yeah, bring your hat, mittens, long johns, hand warmers, etc. It's been a cold ass November. Every morning I've been scraping my windows as it's usually right around mid 20's to low 30's. Today I was able to take my CL175 on a quick run up and down my street but I wussed out and came back. lol. I've heard nothing but good things about the HD museum as it's huge and really cool. I'm not a Harley guy but I wanna check it out next time I head down to Miltown.

I have to put in my two cents...rode to work one morning and while i was inside someone here backed into my CB. blew the taillight lens apart. so first place i head to is the MCS. GREAT parts selection, but holy horrible customer service batman!!

the rudest people that i have ever dealt with, but i will continue to shop there because they own the market up here.

For all you Milwaukee folks, you might want to check this guy out:

http://www.waynes-cycles.com/

cheap parts and has barely no over head so you will get a better price.

I would, if asked, claim they are race bikes and have no titles. If not asked keep your mouth shut.

Bring some back bacon as a bribe. And when you get arrested and go to jail never pick up your soap in the shower.

Canada is a dicey subject, coming from one who has been searched more often than he cares to admit (I have since cut off a LOT of hair). My opinion is this: If you look respectable, and have a believable story, they won't stop or search you. I have transported my bike across the border a dozen times, and have never been asked for papers. The trick is to not look like a terrorist or drug dealer.

That said, they can stop & search you for whatever reason they like. Simply by crossing the border you give consent to be searched. Make certain you declare all contraband, and you'll have no problem.

Flint/Durand is just up the road. If you have an hour to spare, let me (and catboy - who must get searched every crossing, to judge by the look of him) buy the pints.
