In loving memory of Eric Mohowitsch

Merry Christmas!

I just can’t believe it is December already—where on earth did the year go? Is it just

me, or do they seem to fly by faster and faster? I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving

and was able to enjoy it with friends, family, or both.

I hope you are getting into the holiday spirit. In this issue, you will find some great gift

ideas for that hard-to-buy-for person in your life…or maybe even yourself.

 

I am really excited about the expansion of the magazine next month to Thunder

Roads Motors Lakes Trails. I am hoping that you all are, too! I will not be taking

anything away, but only adding to the magazine. We will still talk about motorcycles,

regardless of the season, but we will also have some added features on what else is

happening in our great state, according to the season.

I hope you will share in my excitement and help spread the word about this. You

can view the publication each month online, or pick it up at any advertiser. Thunder

Roads Magazine of Michigan has always been free and supported by the advertisers.

The more advertisers, the more content we can include, and thus a larger publication

each month. 

Please like us on Facebook and check out our website www.ThunderRoadsMichigan.com.

 

I am also looking forward to the 5th Annual Thunder Fun Night! Check out all the

details in this issue, but don’t wait to book your spot because it will fill up quickly

and space is limited! YOU Will Not Want to Miss This! To reserve your spot, simply

go to ThunderRoadsMichigan.com and click on Store, then Thunder Store, then

Thunder Fun Night, and check out via PayPal. Plus, while you are there grab some

Thunderwear…anyone wearing Thunderwear on Thunder Fun Night February 10th

will receive a special extra gift!!! If you are looking for some FUN, then this is the

event for you! Book your spot, and then mark your calendar for February 10th, 2018.

Also, this is the LAST MONTH we will be offering FREE SHIPPING on Thunderwear,

so be sure to take advantage of it. Thunderwear and Subscriptions make GREAT

Christmas presents!!!

 

Again, be sure to like Thunder Roads Magazine of Michigan on Facebook to keep

up-to-date with the exciting updates and latest happenings. Please patronize our

advertisers and let them know you saw them in Thunder Roads, because, thanks to

them, we are the #1 Free Motorcycle Magazine in Michigan…and growing to become

Michigan’s #1 Free Magazine. Thank you to all of our loyal advertisers—we appreciate

you! Thank you also to all the representatives and contributors to this publication!

Lastly, thank you to our readers—Merry Christmas to you all!
