Nice straight roads with beautiful trees.  :thumleft:
Those blind side roads must give you heart attacks when the residents come out suddenly!  :o

It does, but not as harsh of a heart attack as when a moose, deer, or bear jumps out of the trees  :imaposer:

I went island hopping off Sandusky back in 1997. Also went to Cedar Point rollercoaster park.

I was amazing about the size of these lakes. I think Lake Erie only about 35 deep at the most. But what got me was when we came to an island without a ferry dock and I asked the guy how he got his pickup there and he told me drove it there... I was seriously interested in his weed till he burst out laughing and told me that it all froze up I winter and they can drive to Canada over the lake. I well believed that remembering the day we landed in a blizzard and how cold it was.

Nice, Cedar Point has the largest and fastest coasters in our country.

BigEd, are you telling me you visited Put-in-Bay Island?  That place is the stuff of legends, a real meat market if you know what I mean.  Oh man, I've got a funny story to tell about one of my visits there.

I did! The Beer Barrel Saloon with its longest bar counter...

Also went to Kelly's Island. I think we visited another smaller island but I can remember now.

It was a lovely day spent hopping around the islands renting golf carts and just having fun! Me and my brother took turns seeing how fast we could go in them...

The place is a blast to visit, lots of fun can be had there.

Those Yamaha's are lookers and they keep value !!
Never been on one of those, Kansas dont get enough snow on the Winter to justify a purchase like this, so most stick to side by sides which is very popular especially in the Agricultural sector.
Have a good weekend BO :thumleft:

These models do retain value well, though in all honesty, used snowmobile values are through the roof. 

Why?  Because of the lockdown, snowmobile manufacturers were unable to manufacture enough sleds to meet demand this winter.

Yamaha snowmobiles now use an Arctic Cat chassis with Yamaha engines because Yamaha chassis sleds aren't known for stellar handling or a good ride.

Arctic Cat, Ski-doo, and Polaris are all way ahead in chassis and suspension technology.
