MN MX April 13 - which track are you riding???

Recommended Posts

04/13/08 MIDWAY KELLOGG

04/13/08 STRAIGHT ARROWS GRANTSBURG

Tentatively, weather permitting, I will be @ Grantsburg. As much as I enjoy Kellogg, it is a LONG drive for me.

The long drive there IS bad enough, the VERY LONG drive home is worse. Back in my hey-day of 1980 - 1983, I remember getting home at 10pm...!!!

So Grantsburg, with it's bottomless sand and whoops, is it for me !!! :thumbsup:

All depends on the weather. If Don's track is dry enough, I'd like to head down there for a few hours to get the bike tested and tuned. I'm not quite ready to race yet (haven't been on the bike since last fall!)

Practice on Saturday, race is on Sunday.

Whooped out sand tracks have never been on my "Well, it's kind of an OK track..." but they are a VERY GOOD workout, no doubt about that. You never know, sand may be the niche (you) have been looking for !

my motor is out of the frame and at the shop, figuring out what went kablooey in the bottom end. I know this weekend isn't going to happen, but I'm really hoping to be done before the next weekend.

My motor is out of the frame too! And my motor is in about 200 pieces on my computer desk, and my frame is in a few pieces, subframe on the end of my bed, forks on the side of my bed, swingarm over by my couch... haha

It should be ready by saturday/sunday though, parts get here friday morning...

Taking this weekend off of racing either way, just too far for me to drive!

Next weekend I have drill, won't make that race either!

Then the week after that (April 26/27) I will be at Staples hopefully ready to contend for the win in 250 and 14-24!! Hope to see some of you guys there too!

Count me in as far as riding Don's track (if I'm allowed). I haven't been on my bike since my last fall (I mean fall) either!

Matt, do you have the "secret member whistle ring of power"...???

Only us members have one.

And, the club initiation can be pretty rough AND humiliating...! :thumbsup:

I DON'T have the whistle and I'm a little scared now - I've heard stories about mx initiations that take place on farms!

My bike is still on the trailer from lasts weeks (non) race for me.

I will wait and see.

Bottom line, I too need practice time to check my suspension, if nothing else.

Maybe it will be a Thumpertalk Ride real soon at Don's, if the opportunity arises...

      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.

      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?
