    Good Times! I agree, Lets plan another ride, Preferably a warmer weekend haha, damn it was chilly! I was unfortunately super tight on time and wish I rode the M22 with ya all. But yea, It was a fun ride home, I hit up a couple seasonal 2-tracks around White Cloud. Charged (and got coffee) in Mesick, then stopped at Newaygo Brewing for a bit to warm up and re-charge, they have amazing food and Beer FYI.

    They have 13 miles of M-22 torn up North of Glen Arbor this year.A giant traffic jam.So might want to consider that on your next ride up here.

    Hey guys - guess who I'm with right now.... (out in Colorado)

    Rob says "HI" to all you from the forum!

    He cooked us some killer pork loin and asparagus on the grill. [​IMG]

    Crap... I just installed my fast charger, but I'm going camping with the Wife & dog up at the Straits St. Park that same weekend.

    If we do a Fall time one lets set a date soon that way I can keep the weekend clear.

    Hope to make this camp & ride. I sold my 400 KTM and one of the CRF's and bought a DRZ. I need an experienced DRZ owner to ride it and give me an opinion. I suspect the transmission is knackered. It shifts fine riding at normal/light rpm's (putzing along), but wants to hang up in 3rd & 4th when shifting under full load. (high rpm power shifting) Possible bent shift fork? Hoping to go look at an XT 250 for Tammy this afternoon. The price is right and the pics look good. If it checks out, we'll bring it home.
