Mi riding Saturday 2/12

Recommended Posts

Who's up for riding on saturday 2/12? Maybe Holton or Cedar at 10am.

Joe, I like the Kentucky idea, but I've only got saturday off this weekend. So how about next weekend? We could leave friday night ride both days and drive back sunday evening.

Looks like I'll be meeting slow-joe at Holton at 10am, I'll probably be leaving Plymouth around 5 or 6am if anybody with screws in their tires wants to come.

Where's the ride report? I was a little short on the draw, in getting the info for the ride saturday. Been working out of town the last week. & never thought there would be a ride for sat. I was checking to see if you had a ride planned for sunday. Oh well, I'll catch up next time, But I do need details.! :)

Well, it wasn't as good as last weekend in Baldwin. There was still quite abit of snow and it was HEAVY. It was just me, Ted, and the Duckboy. The first guy through wasn't too bad, but everyone else had to fight the bars. After about 3 miles, the duckboy had to change his plug. I will not complain about changing the plug on my Honda after watching that 1/2 hour choir. After a mile or two of trying to find that fresh cut trail. We decided it was best to let Ted lead and try to catch him. I think the Duckboy ended up in double digits for trees hit. I passed him one time while he was looking at his freshly busted front brake lever. After taking a break and letting Ted get a good lead, I passed the Duckboy again against a tree. He said that he thought his plug was starting to foul out again so I thought I better catch Ted. I turn a corner and find Ted off his bike and looking down at the motor. He snapped his masterlink and the chain was badly wrapped around the front sprocket. After about an hour off fighting Ted's chain, we get it up and going again and finish the ride.

Sure hope Baldwin was better, sounds like a tough day. I'm waiting for dirt. Just completed the winter tear down, had the suspension revalved and added an auto clutch while at it. Come on spring. :)

I rode Bull Gap yesterday, just the top of the loop. Nice day for a ride. Would not have been fun on a bike, there were two good ruts from ATVs and the center was only mostly frozen. Looked like a work out. However, my Recon zipped through there like it was on rails. Oh yeah, it was. It was actually easier to straddle the ruts then run in them to avoid the slot car scenario.

Not enough snow for sleds generally speaking. Where the sled trails were sheltered by trees, there was almost enough snow to keep the slides lubed, but where the trail hit the open, it was mostly ice or dirt.

40 miles was a nice winter break. Hoping to hit Little Manistee next weekend. Would like to get a bunch of snow to use the snowmobile vs kwad.
