    I always have a good time riding with you, Don.

    Whether we're taking a motorcycle apart in the middle of a tropical jungle;

    Or fixing a shock out the back of an ambulance;

    [​IMG]

    Or pre-running knee-deep silt beds on the Baja peninsula;

    [​IMG]

    Or maybe crossing a river on a paper-mache barge;

    There's always adventure !

    Cross posting this in all the Michigan threads, hope that's alright.

    Greetings Michigan ADV'ers.

    I'm a few states over in Illinois where we have a fascist regime running the DMV. I may need some assistance from a Michigan resident. If anyone is interested, I'd be more than happy to compensate you for your time. PM me for details.

    Cool. Does it include two perfectly spaced trees where ever I stop?

    :norton

    Are you saying your ready for a camping night ride?

    How about that spot in the U P that was on the cliff with the sweet lookout?

    Could we pull your camper to that spot?

    Is it going to be snowy in Tennessee next weekend? I hear they are getting snow this week. The stupid Weather channel keeps giving snow storms names. I think this one is called storm Buzzkill.

    What's the snow situation in your neck of the woods? I'll be doing the family thing this weekend up in Gladwin. I'm wondering if it makes any sense to bring up the mini-quad and the little xr's :ear

    Yep I do have my ears on :)
    There's still a little snow in the woods, I personally wouldn't ride the bike but quads should be fine. Gets really muddy during the day and frozen at night.
    Gladwin is a bit North though, so there should still be plenty of snow, my buddy was riding his snowmobile by Gaylord last weekend and he said that the trails were glorious. Bad news, I know :cry.

    Boy was riding his TTR around the place yesterday in the snow, ice and mud. Broke through the one pond and needed parental help to extricate, but the wet boot and pants didn't phase him.
    We are ~3 miles south of the Gladwin system.

    Did you notice the horn? (compliments of WalMart bike shop). You should have seen the turn signals we were able to build in an hour (and a half). We made it thru!
