    Toadl,
    I you mentioned the whole family will be coming up the weekend of the Shindig. You may want to look into the scenic boat tours starting this summer out of the Silver Bay marina. The Wenonah is now based in the Silver Bay Marina and giving daily tours.

    If others are interested, it might be worth making a detour to the Silver Bay Marina at some point and going for a cruise.

    Here is an article from Lake Superior Magazine:

    I will add it to the options of things to do. I'd like to have options, but don't want to have a schedule.

    Yep,sure did, I actually almost lost mine this weekend too. It was just hanging on by a thread! Those BRP's shure done like the ol Licence plates.

    Also Toad, you would of been impressed... Clay, ZiggyND and I went to the black hills and I went through two front tubes. First one lasted about 4 miles the first day and the last one went out the last day on the last 4 miles, almost in the same spot!

    We found some new single track that is one of the most gnarliest I have seen out there for you and any others that come out for Clay's black hills ride in september. Not that anyone, that went last year is looking for any more difficult single track, Clay managed to find some more crazy stuff...

    Over all we also had a great weekend riding!

    Well, I almost lost my plate in the Black Hills last fall. Was broke in two pieces, almost three pieces - the middle piece being everything except the bolt holes. Fortunately it was noticed back at the garage, and repaired before the next days ride had a chance to finish it off.

    Sorry about the continued bad luck with plates, and new bad luck with tubes.

    Now about that gnarly single track...hell yes, bring it on! :deal

    I'm impressed and jealous. Went fishing this weekend with the kids. MN Bass opener was great, but Motorcycles have ruined fishing for me. Why go fishing when you can go riding?:lol3

    Absoutely! BTW, for those of you that are leaving an SO at home for the weekend, this would be a great place to pick up a little gift for him/her. You know, invest in your Shindig future. :D

    Jesse- The friends at GM Campground have requested we do a TX BBQ dinner this year. So, on Sunday July 14th around 6PM We will be hosting a BBQ dinner at the GM Pavillion. If you are in the area, drop by for dinner with us. Unfortunatley, we will not have enough for many others as we already have almost 30 folks showing up.

    Hope to see you in GM this summer. Our plan is to be there July & August.

    Below is our tshirt design for 2013. They are $14 for each. Sizes available are unisex S-4XL. Please PM me if you would like a tshirt. Tell me what size and quantity. I will accept cash during the Shindig for payment. I just ask that you honor your commitment if you say you want a shirt. I have to have all orders in by the end of the month. I will deliver the shirts during the Shindig. Thanks!
