Oh C'mon. The Sten should be fine on muddy single track!
I'll be on a VFR. The Sten will have good company.
Posted some parts in the Central Flea Market thread that I am willing to bring to CADVR.
The first loop (beginner loop) of our new OHM trail project will open this Sunday. It is in the town of Conover. I'll put together a DS loop there and back. The first trail segment is about 8 miles long.
Momentum is your friend.
coming around a 90, 2 up, going uphill. There is no momentum.
I hear there's a guy that can mount a winch on the back......
He already had a wench on the back......
I didn't know Bonebag was so well connected. He somehow managed free trail access just across the border in the UP for rally weekend:
From a DNR email today:
"Don't forget that Michigan residents and out-of-state visitors can explore DNR-designated routes and trails without purchasing an ORV license or trail permit Aug. 18-19. All other ORV rules and laws still apply, and the Recreation Passport is required where applicable.
Explore the thrill of the ride yourself or take time to introduce friends and family to Michigan's 3,700 miles of off-road trails and/or the state’s five scramble areas (St. Helen’s Motorsport Area, Black Lake Scramble Area, Silver Lake State Park, Bull Gap and The Mounds)."
I am looking for someone to share a campsite with. I have not reserves a site yet. I have a van and a 10 foot trailer so it would be best to share with a motorcycle and tent combo. I will have a refrigerator, stove and chairs to share.
With the new single track trail opening near Conover, some people will want a dual sport path from Boulder Junction to the trail and back. I worked one out and will post the track here and in my Boulder Junction GPX catalog in a few days.
This is a mix of pavement and gravel. It is 27 miles from Gas Boulder to Gas Conover. From Gas Conover to Gas Boulder is 30 miles. There is an 8 mile single track trail loop on the trip from Conover to Boulder that needs to be added to the total miles for that segment. When considering fuel, some will also have to add a "flog factor" for sporting it up on the single track.
If you skipped the Conover gas the loop would be a total of about 59 miles Boulder to Tamaracks (also riding the trail) and back.
I'll map the single track prior to the rally and I'll add it to the track before I publish it.
U bringing the alp
For a guy trucking it there is it worthwhile to bring a second, non street legal bike?
If it has a WI OHM sticker, you can ride it on the Tamarack trail and the designated OHM routes that lead to Conover from the trail. I wouldn't bother.
You can also truck it to Porterfield and Bass Lake in the UP (exempt for stickers on that Sat-Sun) but it is a ways to travel.
Thanks. Should we be stopping in boulder on the way in for wi stickers if we don't have? Bait shop type place?
There is a ranger station off hwy J in Woodruff you can register at but I don't think they issue stickers on the spot. They would mail it to your home address but give you a paper copy so you're covered until it arrives. Some stations for instance the one near Madison, carry stickers.
OK, the last few posts raise a question . . . is sticking to the routes Cannonshot has kindly posted, is a sticker of some sort required?
If you ride on a designated trail in WI, you need an OHM sticker. Some of my rally catalog incorporates designated trails, some does not. I didn't indicate which was which because I mapped and published them long before I finally got the OHM law project completed. The very popular NHAL path does not require a sticker. Also, some paths in MI may require a MI sticker(s).
