    Welcome to Michigan. Ever had a plated and legal 2-stroker? :wink: I think everyone should and least once in life. Like the Ghoul used to say "do it while you can, but don't get caught." Subject to change without notice. :lol3 :rofl:lol3

    Lots of guys dual sport plated 2 smokes, i prefer a 4 stroke for that purpose.

    I rode Steve's 2012 350 XC-W a few weeks ago and was impressed with how nice it is. It really felt like it had the agility of a 2 smoke and the power was very good too. I liked it.

    That's another bike on my short list as I would like to keep it in the 250 lbs and less range. You riding this weekend? I go back on call on Saturday, but could probably get out for a few hours.

    Got the seat for my 520 back today. Had it re-coverd after my little tree incident by Renazco Racing in black suede.

    :thumb for excellent service and craftsmanship.

    Just kidding - let me know how you like it, I may do the same!

    Nice seat Mike. Renazco makes a fine one. That 520 will still be hard on your backside though.

    Ask her......

    Do you know how many things you can do with WD40?

    Bruno,

    Looks like Saturday is going to be the pick day for a ride. Are you leading a local ride?

    Tomorrow looks better than Sunday.

    We can do a local ride or go to West Branch / St Helen.

    Anybody in for a local ride tomorrow ?

    Most of the trails on that map near Detroit are for non motorized vehicles. Looks cool though.

    Someone just put that article on my toolbox. Looks pretty interesting but the 160 mile boyscout trail seems like it wont fly for anything motorized. Snowmobiles in the winter, bicycling in the summer is kinda what I gather. Cool none the less that its getting some interest. Maybe more will come of it!

    Could be up for either. What would the plan be for a up north ride, in and out the same day? Could perhaps fit a bike on my trailer from the Northville, Novi area.

    The weather forecast for West Branch is a High of 43 and looking at the trail cam there is a little snow on the ground. I dont know if the ground is frozen, but I am in either way local or up north.

    Looking at the map of the proposed trail, I see the Polly Ann trail in northern Oakland Co. I am familliar with this section. It is an abandoned railway bed that is now a pedestrian/equestrian trail. I used to ride a section of it back in the day. Closed to motor vehicles. The mere thought of allowing hooligans such as ourselves access with those murdercycles would seriously ruffle some feathers. :eek1 Runs straight through the koenig and the American Aggregates gravel pits. :wink::wink: Ah, those were the days.:lol3 Now, if I were betting my money, I say ain't gonna happen. No way, no how.
