Thanks for making us aware of this. We ALL need to follow through and contact our representatives and lobby them to follow our wishes. Otherwise we get our rights revoked. It takes 10 minutes and is well worth the effort. 2TrakR makes this very easy to do and if you ride up North it is up to you to keep those trails open. The tree huggers want you to walk everywhere and are blocking large swaths of public lands from motor vehicles.

I swear that is what he had on the 690 when he went past me. I'm still blowing dust filled snot balls.

Who's all going to Fredric this weekend? Just curious who I'll get a chance to meet. Looks like I'm gonna hitch a ride with Lee from GLDS/TTV. I just hope I can keep up once I get there. LOL

Rats, looks like no Frederick for me, moving my college kid in Cleveland this weekend.

A group from the BMWTCD club did part of the GLDS Devils Lake-Hell MI run this past weekend in the rain. Had to cut the 127 miles short due to rain, but with transit to Hell and back was an over 150 mile DS ride SOUTH of I-96. Some good roads. My son will be home for Memorial Weekend and so we may do the whole route.

Cleaning the Huskys for the Wiskey Creek Ride (Sponsored by Husqvarna, guess the Austrians could not get their hands out of their pockets with all the money they make on the Orange Bikes)

That hurts Bruno. :( the signature is only to let others know what I ride. :(

I realized quickly riding with Team Terminal Velocity that after being off a dirt bike religiously for a number of years while I went off to college that I'm a bit rusty. I'm not quite as young as I used to be, and not as fast and I'm on a bike that weighs 80lbs more. I'm still pretty quick, but it was work keeping up. I think my ego of how I used go ride and the reality of now clashed pretty hard that day. I humbled myself quietly at home after nursing my aches and pains with Motrin 800's, but thank you for reminding me that I once was " that cocky forum that guy."

Nobody wants to be "that guy". Again, I humbly realize that I'm not in my late teens or early twenties anymore, and I apologize for giving off that persona. That being said, i hope we can put differences aside and enjoy Frederic together if you plan on going.

Bruno's just ribbing you Jon. He's one of the nicest guys you'll meet in the sport.
