23rd Annual Midnight Ride


Believe it or not: I’m digging out my LONG UNDERWEAR to wear all night long on the motorcycle Midnight Ride tonight—the 23rd annual ride is for Juvenile Diabetes.


My husband and I have ridden for a number of years now. Last year, our daughter, Amanda, rode with Steve. This year Amanda and her boyfriend, Austin, will be joining us on their own motorcycles. Also our niece, Lindsay and her husband, Andy plan to go too. Just us and thousands of our closest biker friends ride from the Rockford Meijers beginning at 11:59 pm tonight and arrive at Mackinaw Bridge around 8:00 am with three rest stops in between.


Sure would be nice if the rain quit and thunderstorms passed!

    Hi there.

    Just taking a look at your blog, etc. Forgot that you were into motorcycles. Lois and I have had a V-Star for a couple of years now.
    WE now have 7 grandchildren between us and one on the way.

    Just nice to see pictures of you and Steve and hear how you are doing. Phil

    • Hi Phil,

      So good to hear from you! Glad you and Lois are doing well. V-Star…nice bike…that’s what my daughter owns now. Steve and I have two grandchildren from our oldest son and wife. Amanda isn’t married yet. How did you find me here? Are you on Facebook at all?

    • Phil,

      A V-Star…what fun! Steve and I had a Yamaha Road Star for our first together bike. We had great fun with it too. I have a feature article due out in Rider magazine before the end of the year–you’ll have to keep watching and reading. Steve included some awesome pics of our trip south through the Tail of the Dragon, Blueridge and Smoky Mountains–great trip! Keep in touch.
