The next morning, we will head out around-9:00am to visit the crash site. It will be 3/4 of a mile of flat rock road, we will be pulling off to the shoulder or there is a grassy area, so you might want your kickstand plates with you. We will be dropping a Defiance poker chip on the crash site for Memorial. I will be talking with the owner and making a plexiglass memorial canister. Harley riders can drop a chip in it. This ride and story will be sent into the HOG Magazine. This could make the cut and this tourist attraction could be put on the list for Harleys Destination rides. On the way back it will be 250 miles on the interstate.
