I missed VMD this year, but we just came back from a little 4 day family trip to the U.P. and Mackinac Island. I have been all over the country, and cannot believe that this is the first time I have been up there, it's friggin amazing scenery. I have always been fascinated by engineering feats, and seeing the bridge has been on my list for a while, so we decided what the hell and headed up there on friday.

I plan on going back with a bike next month, anyone game? We found some awesome forest service roads in our Tiguan, and explored all over....looks like some fun riding...

I wonder if he has a southern twang with his British accent yet.

Yea VMD the only place where you go from hurricane type winds and driving rain to scorching heat and humidity. The weather just sucked this year! It really drove away people, not much sales going on that I could see and lots of vendors pulled out early.

I thought my tent was going to blow out of my truck!! We did have a prime spot in the swap meet for watching people eat it in the mud on the bend and up the hill on every 2-wheeled contraption out there!!

Anyone at VMD catch the guy with a hit-or-miss engine on a bike? Cool stuff.

Pretty saw I saw you riding in the swap meet. Did you have yellow dry bags strapped on the side of the dr?

From a far it looked like any other POS rolling around but once I was close and saw what was really going there I admired his ingenuity.

I used to do a trial ride just south of the bridge each year, the Phillip Bean Memorial Ride put on by the Tomahawk Trail Riders. Good people, it was always fun.

The CCC is one of the most well organized and focused groups I have seen when it comes to off road accessibility. They have done a very good job of setting up a trail system and keeping it maintained and open to the public. The riding is different up there, be prepared for sand whoops through the woods, cool & interesting. Have fun!

Anyone have old, usable WeeStrom side racks laying around?
Thought I'd check before spending money for new ones. I have some cheap MCM Electronics cases, thought I put them on the Strom for a weekend trip.

I need to fill some seats for my class this week. It is too hot & too wet for people to sign up. I need to help offset the cost of the instructors and a more full class makes for a better time anyhow as the students feed off each other's enthusiasm and excitement. It is normally $200, but I'll cut you FFs a great deal if you have a kid, S.O. or friend that needs to get their license.

YOU MUST HAVE YOUR TEMPS TO TAKE THE BRC.

Class starts tomorrow at 6pm, You can get your temps on Thurs or Fri, you do not need them for the class Wed night.

Classroom Wed, July 24th 6PM-10PM
Range (on Motorcycle) Sat July 27 8AM -2PM & Sun July 28 8AM-2PM

I'll provide the fairly new bike & can loan you a helmet if needed.

Classes are normally full, not certain how often I can make this offer.

Scott

Oh, & I won't rat out which ones of you are riding around without a license if you do not rat out how cheap I'll make it for you.

SCQTT@Yahoo.com if you are interested.
