    Hi everyone,
    I’m interested if anyone wants to start a weekly or bi weekly ride around Marquette area. I’m a newbie so you’ll have to have some patience with me while I learn.

    Greetings! my name is Matt and I just got stationed in Cheboygan on the mighty Mackinaw. My pops loves riding and has telling me about it for years, now I would love to start riding to give us a opportunity to spend time and together and explore around Michigan on. Been hunting around for a couple moths for a WR250R. I would greatly appreciate any wisdom on first time bike buying or any leads on a WR250R . It would really help me out. thanks for your time and I look forward to chatting/riding in the future!

    Hi Matt, I am off the Wolverine exit of I75, I ride an Africa Twin. If you are experienced then the WR is probably fine, but if you are new to this I would suggest Honda's CRF250L. This one is lower and easier to handle, in my opinion. Stay in touch!

    I saw some people may be interested in a group ride around the Marquette area. Please keep me posted if anything gets put together as I'd be interested.

    So..... for all of the folks in the Marquette area, we have been meeting up and riding on Tuesday evenings. These rides are moderate paced, medium difficulty, and definitely "join at your own risk".

    You can private message me for contact details. Please note that these are not any sort of officially sanctioned rides.

    It would be nice to also maybe have a few longer day rides on the weekend....or during the week for those with flexible schedules. If anyone wants to put something together, don't hesitate to post something here.
