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.

      From everyone else's experience have you ridden anything in Michigan that compares to riding the Tomahawk B and C loops in Wolverine?  I'm finding myself becoming a Tomahawk snob because I can't seem to find any other trails that compare to the Tomahawk.  The elevation changes/hills, the woops, the tight twisty trails, the rocks the roots just the all out flow of the trail is amazing.  Everything we have tried this year to me doesn't have that wow factor and just seems flat and twisty.   
       
      Anyone have any other recommendations to try before the season is done?
       
      Thank you

      got lots of high resolution small area maps,  jeremies VVV maps are great,  but I'm looking for a single map that shows the trail,  and the roads and highways and the cities and towns -  trying to plan my next assault on the MCCCT,  trying to do it "modular"  with a series of Home bases,   so a map showing both would really speed up my process

      I was thinking that there are a few riders from out of state that might not be as familiar with our trail system/DNR websites. I received an email from the DNR today with some great links that I thought I'd share for anyone who is interested. Note, all can be accessed by the first page, but since it's hard to navigate on a phone sometimes, I added individual links as well. 
      DNR State Trails, ORV, hiking, etc.

      I just joined the dual sport club as well as this forum.  Grabbed an ‘06 KLX250 and am looking for fellow locals to ride with (have plates and ORV)..  Also have a truck and free time for getting north.  I’ve been riding a road bike for many years (Magna 750 currently), but the off road aspect is new to me.  Since getting the bike, I’ve been logging miles on local dirt roads, but there’s nowhere to really get off road in Washtenaw county.  Planning a trip with a bunch of quad riders near Gladwin at the end of the month, but hoping to hook up with some other bike riders specifically sooner and/or later.  Being new to off road (albeit fairly confident), my better judgement is telling me to avoid heading out solo right away.  Any friendly folks willing to ride?  Or even, any other advice?

      We have been going on adventures every other weekend riding everything Michigan has to offer within a few hour distance of where we live.  This is a short one of us playing around on the Moss Lake trails in Rapid River MI.  It's not a bad trail, a little choppy for how many roots are on the trail but none the less fun as hell!
