    Damn that was a good time last year... Ryan, thanks for putting it on again. Many thanks to Tim too, with his extensive local knowledge of the trails.

    Wild Bill with his Hillbilly-Harem is the man! I can't believe he's letting us come back there considering half the group dug WWI style trenches in his lot.

    Time to talk to the other Amigos.

    This will be my first, just waiting to see how many are coming with me. Thinking of riding my KLR up from the Detroit area. If not, I may trailer the ktm up for some real shenanigans.

    I'm going to have to do this again. I'll take Friday off this time to get the full experience. In defense of the trench digging I was coerced in to tearing up the lot with my bike. What can I say I don't do well with peer pressure.

    Im putting it on my calendar - I'll flip you the fees as soon as I get my time off coordinated. Is it bad taste to bring my "Finding Nemo" sleeping bag?:freaky

    My family is trying to make other plans for me on that weekend but I refuse to succumb. I plan on being there Friday and hopefully Saturday too.

    I will be there Tues or Wed to knock the grass down and explore. If anyone passing by mid-week stop in for a beer or some riding.
    My plans are to ride Silver Lake Dunes on Monday and Tues.....send me a note if you want to do this.
    I am adding a paddle tire to my CR500.

    ******Silver Lake Sand Dunes Ride planning here: MON 6/10 , Tues 6/11, wed 6/12 , I am staying near Mears, MI.
    I would prefer to stay at Comfort Inn , I can split a room for about $50 each if anyone is touring in the area or going dune riding.
    I would prefer hotel as camping at rally event so PM asap so I can make reservations, if not camping is in area.
    To dune ride you need an ORV sticker, a flag, paddle tire, spark arrestor, plus gate fee, etc. I would like to ride on dunes at least 2 days.
    Also bringing a plated bike along so can ride side trips. Not to jack this thread but if you want to head out early in week and ride mon-wed please PM me.
    Doug's Dune Ride Rally #1 , tag along, take off of work, be there ***************
