Q-tip. Are you the guy I met at the car wash in New Hudson ?

Hows your winter going ? Sucks don't it? Would a trip to Drummond work for you? Theres usually some wives on that trip. Memorial weekend.

THE ROCK!!!!!:lol: :lol: :eek:

I've been waiting for someone else to mention The Rock '07 thread! I don't feel that I have enough seniortiy - no offense to my elder bretheren here - to start it, as I've only been there once. However, if the discussion will begin and/or continue here, I'm officially in! This year I'll definitely get a few rides in before to get the old body back in riding mode. And yes, wives are welcome there. Mine will be at home with the kids, tho! :applause:

To hell with the 4x4's...That place is dirtbike nirvana. Not a place for the timid 1st time rider though. But there are lots of 2-tracks that can be ridden by someone that is just learning. But the actual orv trails.....they can be a handfull. the entire east side of the island can be riden without a platted veichle. roads, t-tracks, trails, all of it. So that makes for some riding for the wife if the trails are too much.

And remember....All trails lead to Chucks place :applause:

MY Husband and I ride trails every weekend somewhere weather permitting. We will not ride until most of the snow is melted though. We do not have studs. So feel free to contact us. My husbands email is bruno670 at gmail.com I would love to have another female rider on the trail.

I would love to try Drummond Island sometime as well. My husband rode there several years ago during an enduro. He wants to return so bad.

What about kids? Does this area have a few trails friendly to 10 year olds with limited expirience? Thanks Guys!

so does that mean the "trails" are single track and how many mi. are they?

If your talking Drummond there is about 60 miles of trail. That dont sound like much but as others will attest to if you can ride 30 miles out there thats a big day. There is plenty of trail out there to enttertain ya. Most of it is now ORV width. There is still a little true single track out there but for the most part the quads have invaded. This is not to say its not interesting out there. The trail there is nasty. Like nothing you will find anywhere else in michigan.

As for kid friendly. My boy rode it when he was 8 on a TTR90 and loved it. Granted he is a bit nuts on a bike. Lets just say that most of the trail there is extremely rocky, rooty, and muddy.

New " Rock" armor installed yesterday. New Moose skid plate on t6he way from Evilbay.

Bought them off Wolfchild. He bought them slightly used and they were too small for him so he twisted my arm and I bought them off him.

Last year I was about the slowest of a dozen riders on Drummond. That being said, I was never more than a few minutes behind the pack. The first day we did about 25 miles and my moving average on the GPS was only about 6.5mph on the single track. Its far from a walk in the park, but if you want to really understand the limits of both yourself and your bike, its the only true test I've found in Michigan. Drummond is great fun, just dont expect too much 4th/5th gear riding unless you're using real roads. Even the two tracks are slick and littered with tube-pinching "pebbles." I can't wait to go back.:applause:
