For those of you just joining us, Welcome to the Detroit Greetings thread.

This thread was created by a bunch of guys who wanted to get together and ride. It began in 2004 and died when the ADVrider server crashed and the original thread was erased.

You are now reading the continuation of that original thread.

Don't be shy go to the last page and introduce yourself all are welcome and let's ride!

Maybe it's in the Smithsonian since it's such a work of art.
I'm trying to figure out who's been playing.

Gee, I never realized how much crap I have contributed to that thread. It would be a shame to lose it.

I tried to look up my past posts and not one Detroit greeting post shows up.

Hey my oddometer is only 349. I'm a noooooooooooooob again!

Btome only has 1 post. Ha!

Hey Detroit area riders!

Looking for suggestions on good rides for the area. Would like to see how this GS does off road.

Any suggestions?

Cheers,

JCB, Sorry you couldn't make it, we had a good time. The 7-8 guys felt we should do this again. We had AvRiders, Bentwheels, and GLDS guys there. It was nice to talk with other riders and listen to their stories. Dr Dale and
DetR6oit pulled out the maps, R6/Matt filled Dr Dale in on the details of his Nova Scotia/Newfoundland trip. Dale, Chris Cross Crash and I are heading to Labrador, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia this July. Peter brought tour info from Alaskan tours. They have some cool trips scheduled, Scotland/Isle of Man, South Africa, and of course Alaska...

The pub was nice, Kuhnehnns is a smoke-free micro brew, great beer and wine. I had the Cherry panty dropper ale, didn't work though.

Maybe we could do this again in about a 3-4 weeks.

Feel free to recommend a particular date, and your favorite place.

Hopefully I helped out a bit though I am not sure how much valuable info I added

Here are some pics from my trip.

Hello DH,

There is very little (legal)off-road available below Bay City. If you are interested in good dirt roads we have a ton in North Oakland County. Just East of Lake Orion look at the following dirt roads.

Lake George
Drahner
Indianwood
Bahr
Haven

West of M-24 and North toward Oxford

Big Fish Lake
Many Roads in and around Ortonville State Rec.

JW

Hello there dhescheles! I'm out in Tecumseh, work in A2 and have my shop in Saline. Around here we've got great dirt roads (and alot of them) but all off road stuff is covert and slightly illegal. Flint off road park is the closest off road, but well worth passing by for the trails 1.5 hours north of us. Post up a picture of your new bike so we'll recognize ya. Here one of my usual ride these days:

In Love

Have been looking for a vintage bike.
Have been looking for a thumper.
Have been looking for a bike I can hop on, throw around a bit, and smile all the way.

I found them all in this 1982 XL500R. What have I been waiting for?
I don't need to tell you this is a wonderful machine and fits all the above searches.
