Eric Schoeder of Tribal Iron Choppers , Fairlawn , NJ , is completing early June the attachment of the sidecar to the bike .


By June 9th , the rig is -finally- ready . Here is my wife Monique posing with Eric in the shop .


On June 10th , mid morning , all bags are loaded and the souvenir photo is taken . Now , en route for Niagara Falls !


In fact , we stopped in Hammondsport , NY , and spent the night at the Black Sheep Inn ( a B&B ) .


On june 11th, after the 1000 miles check up at the HD dealership in Arkport , NY , we sptopped for a picnic in a State Park , North of Arkport , Stony Brook SP .


By mid afternoon on June 11th , we spent (little) time admiring the Falls both from the US side and the Canadian side and we spent the night at Fort Colborne .


After riding all the way on route 3 , with nice views on Lake Erie , we finally arrived at Windsor , crossing the US border after riding on the impressive Ambassador bridge .


Later that day ( June 12th) , we spent some time visiting the building of General Motors prior to get rest at the Ferry Street Bed & Breakfast .


On June 13th , we spent all morning visiting the Ford Museum in Dearborn prior to hit the road on the "old" route to Chicago , the Route 12 West .


We stopped quite early in the afternoon in Coldwater and secured our luggage in the B&B , the Chicago Pike , prior to walk and discover the places of interest in this small town, remarkably , the Tibbitt's Opera House in full restoration phase .


Thursday , June 14th : we arrived by late morning at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore NP . We could barely see , far away , the skyline of Chicago .


No stop in Chicago ! head on to Milwaukee where we settled at the Brumder B&B on Wisconsin Avenue -that is also Route 18 - . A short visit to downtown where is standing this sculpture by Mark DiSuvero .
