    You mean the ones at the Pit Stop Bar?

    The Pit Stop bar was the one that offered the burger with 4 kinds of meat products on it. :dg

    The Trackside Bar offered the deck for the beaver viewing area

    Judging by bikes, gear, helmets etc. looks like you guys are mostly set up for pretty serious off road. Might be out of my depth. ;)

    No. We all started by crawling. You will be just fine.

    We ride the street and dirt roads too (as well as ice sometimes). But it is hard to beat riding trails and 2-tracks up north. You get away from the rat race, avoid the SUV's crossing over the centerline, fewer law enforcement officers, no distracted teen drivers texting away with no regard for the lives of motorcyclists. You get the picture.

    But mostly...we enjoy the opportunity to ride motorcycles in the woods and forests, taking advantage of the beautiful resources available to us here in the great state of Michigan. And when you get to do this with a group of like-minded friends...it is that much better. Unless one of them chooses to run excessively low tire pressures. Flats suck. :lol3

    Written like a warm fuzzy sales brochure. Nothing in the fine print about the possible occurrence of retardation though. :lol3:rofl:lol3

    It's way more predictable than the weather. There will be retardation, without a doubt.

    Detroit, that shinny new F800 you're picking up is in for a pummeling if you get involved with this group of retardos. Can't say i didn't warn you :lol3

    I don't succumb to peer pressure - even retarded peer pressure. :)

    I just did the deal this morning, matter of fact. After "meeting" all of you, I opted for a set of crash bars and a skid plate. All being installed before I take final delivery.

    Debating on the C3 modular or the Aria XD-4 now. Good times.

    Love my xd4! Perfect for retardation, or two-up touring.... or both at the same time. :D
