Bruce Bone (USA)

The pictures are made on a ride that began in his home state of Indiana for a trip to Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin for the AMA Superbike races at Road America. This is probably one of the best Sport Bike Events in the US. Instead of taking the usual 300 or so mile ride we decided to do something a bit different this year and go all the way around Lake Superior through Northern Canada.
He traveled with his good friend Dr. James Crouch (aka Jimbo). Jimbo rode his new Erion 929 and Bruce rode his 97 Blackbird. They had a great time and rode a total of 4,000 miles in just over 6 days time including a 3 day stop in Elkhart Lake.
