Yes Tarsyn, it's my city.
And these are places I knew well as a young man.
Obviously, they have seen better days (like the Grand Central Train Station in the last pic) but Detroit is not a one trick town, and it still has much, much more to offer:
Unparalleled technological expertise, rich ethnic diversity and an outstanding heritage in Art, Architecture, and Music of every genre, along with a people who have a work ethic that would make Horatio Alger blush.
Also - In contrast to the ruins you see here, there are many other places of exceptional beauty (-and some great places to live, ride, and raise your kids.)
- Did I mention that there are some great deals here on old bikes as well as real estate?
I have to say it though - there are few places on earth that could rival the sheer natural beauty that is Alaska
It must have been a memorable ride!
