Well, my BMW let me down this time. I had to take it to the dealer in SE Michigan to figure out what's wrong. I planned on drinking more than my fair share of beer while I was there, so you guys will have to distribute those amongst yourselves. Looks like a great time I'm missing. I'll try again next year.

Weather is perfect here. Looks like tomorrow too. Just strapped on the sleeping bag and tent. Try to make it out there tonight! See you there hopefully. I'll be on the new Vstrom.

Hopefully they will let me camp, it's not full is it???

Later,
Dave

Ask Snowjob, Dave, ? how a 450 MX bike works in the woods.
Turns out a YZ450F is not a very good woods bike. I am going with 200 kicks and 20 falls in less than 10 miles. Perhaps something a bit more dual-sport is called for today. Worked much better during a bit faster ride with Benny after we got back.
