    There's a group of riders in the "Detroit greetings" thread that rides the North Oakland County area somewhat regularly. Some of the rides are for the bigger bikes, but most seem to be for the lighter DS bikes, like yours.

    If you haven't yet, check out the thread, introduce yourself, and try to make it to one of the rides. Good times to be had by all.

    Well now I'm 350 jealous.

    You should go to the McBikers ride at least once. They are fun. I did go to the Nomads ride once. It was cold and icey and I fell into a mud puddle, I need to go to another one so I have a better memory of the fun.

    Or if you plan a ride I want to be invited.:wink:

    For the record, and to show I have nothing against said model, I tried this spring to pick up a well used XT350 from a buddy.

    This pig had seen more "Adventure" in it's life than most bikes could dream of. I believe my buddy guestimated the mileage at about 75,000 including a nice little trip to Alaska from Michigan, and all sorts of little jaunts around the East Coast and Canada. First bike he had bought new apparently. Rode the piss out of it.

    ok last spring Jeff and I was riding up to the mounds we went through oxford

    at a light this guy was yelling out the window at us about how awesome our xt350's where and claimed that he owed 3 of them himself

    do you know who this guy is

    he claimed he was from oxford and told us if we wanted to sell our bikes he would be them at a drop of a hat we told him no

    then he drove off

    :clap :freaky

    Went last year twice. At 8 am on a Monday it was nice until about 11 then the crowds showed up. It is an accident waiting to happen. On the weekend it was like tring to do stunts on I-696. Lots of sand. lots of bikes, ATVs and trucks going everywhere without warning. Two way trails.
