    There is one little road section that connects the trail but I believe Emmet county has opened their roads to ORV's. Kennedy

    Next time you are riding Tomahawk give the B loop a try, it's very similar to C but a little tighter. Kennedy

    What trails did you ride in the U.P. and how were they? Kennedy

    What did you do to your Beta today ?

    Well that depends on what your into. Are you plated, do you like DS or single track? For tight tough single track Moss Lake and Bass Lake are it. For a little easier going but still single track check out Kinross, Brevort (sandy & whooped), Brevort to Newberry, and Sandtown. If you are plated and more into DS, I have three GPS routes I can send all based out of Newberry. All are over 100 miles and have a gas stop about half way (plan on a all day ride 5-6 hours per route). If you goto this website and click on the trails it will give you a map and a good overview of the trail: http://www.vvmapping.com/trails/trailBigPicture.html Member danceswithtrees is a local up there (and a beta dealer) and can probably give you more detailed info.

    Lots of good riding in the UP, do you know where? If you have a chance check out the Tomahawk trail system in Wolverine (about 45 minutes south of the bridge). http://www.vvmapping.com/trails/tomahawk.html That website will give you a good overall of all the MI trails. Do you use a GPS? I can send you ADV routes or DS routes for all over MI. Kennedy

    Check out Steve (motoxgiant on TT) at PlusOnePerformance. He changed the the springs (both front and rear) on my bike and others here have used him for re-valves. http://afterhourscycle.com/services.html Kennedy

    2018/2019 390 vs. 2012 450

    Never ridden the 450 but I love my 390 and use it the same way as you. We ride everything from single track, 2 track, FS roads and dirt roads. It'll cruse at 60mph all day and not break a sweat. Not quite as fast or quick in the open as my buddies on 450's/500's but when the going gets tight they all wish they had my 390. It truly is a do it all bike. Check out some of firffighter's post, he has some good video reviews on the 390. Kennedy

    I love mine also, especially in the Michigan single track.

    Do Beta Dealers Typically “Deal”?

    Not sure, it might be listed under Plus One Performance on the Beta USA website. Either way, buying from Steve was the best experience I've had when buying new. He is a one man shop so more like buying from a friend than a dealership. Super helpful with all the questions I had and made sure I was buying the right extras instead of just buying things not needed. By the way, you can find him on the forum under "motoxgiant". Kennedy

    Where are you located in Michigan? I bought my 390 from Steve at: http://www.afterhourscycle.com if you're serious about buying do yourself a favor and give him a call. Kennedy

    The best way I found is to use some golf club Double-Sided Grip Tape. Put the tape on your handle bars spray some gas on the tape and inside you grip, slip it on and let it dry (about 30 minutes). I've never had a grip come loose. https://www.dickssportinggoods.com/p/the-golfworks-double-sided-grip-tape-2-inches-x-36-yards-papmachaphmlbpcl/papmachaphmlbpcl?camp=CSE:DSG_pg81992_ecom_PLA_452&gclid=CjwKCAjwsdfZBRAkEiwAh2z65lQVVXV4whDctQH3bH8b_JT_BWvorljOZoNmDfSXMpyILGnptJstvRoC-gkQAvD_BwE Kennedy

    To sell or not to sell CRF110

    Question for you guys with young riders. I picked up a almost new (ridden twice by previous owners kid) 2014 CRF110 for my 5 year. It's way too big and heavy for him so I'm going to keep him on his XR50 for now. Question is do I sell it and buy him something else later or keep it and wait until he grows into it? A couple of thoughts, do I want to let it sit around for a year or 2 un-ridden and do we look into a 50/65cc 2 stroke as his next bike when he's ready to move up. What did your kids move up to after their beginner bike??? Kennedy
