I. Midwest Nice
From August 24th to October 5th of 2015, I rode my Triumph Bonneville through the deepest enclaves of people who say "pop" when we mean soda. And it was incredible. From the Great Lakes to the genesis of the Mississippi River, there's a lot that we take for granted up here in our perpetual winters. I've included on the map below some of my favorite places on the "Fresh Coast", both that I visited during my ride and in general.
