Guys (and gals), are there any tires that bridge the gap between metzeler Sahara/Mefo explorer/K60 and full knobbie? Say about a 40/60 or so tire? Something good for mud that holds up to pavement?

I dont believe I've ever had original Genesee, but I can tell you from personal experience to avoid this swill like the plague:



especially if its on tap...the taste isn't completely awful, but you'll have a wicked case of the liquid shits the next day...

Coors light is my go to piss water beer if i plan on drinking a ton all night partying. Used to be Keystone light, Still drink keystone once a year at the Indy 500. Not too bad to drink if its ice cold and its 90 degrees outside, as long as you drink it fast and don't let it get warm.

I drink great lakes almost exclusively for every other occasion. GL Conways Irish Ale is some delicious beer. Never gotten the shits, nor a hangover from it. Never had a beer from them i didn't like actually. Every time i go back home to Indiana I'm always bringing a few 6 packs for friends that can't buy it there.

I love the GL stuff as well; their Eliot Ness is a great amber lager, and the Dortmunder is light and tasty too. Always look forward to the coming of the Monster every spring, though...

I usually drink Diet Mt Dew, got feeling a little adventurous and picked up some Diet Sun Drop tonight. All crazy up in here...

Just looking a little while ago and Gratiot has gotten like 3.5" of rain in the past three days. Things a little soggy up that way?

You got nothing to worry about. Just pick that KTM up and carry it up the hill. Rogers videos make that ride look worse then it is.

My dad and brother were out tonight riding half of the FRDS after the last bit of rain came through...wet, but the ground is really firm and they said everything was holding up well. Should be good

I can do 2 Monsters in an evening.......but that is it. Not a beer to be taken lightly....

You boys need to head down to Sugar Creek or Millersburg and try Millersburg Brewing's offering. IMO, the vanilla porter is better than GL's EF. In Zoar, you can get the Star Lager at the the Canal Tavern that is really nice for a lager. Millersburg Brewing is doing some nice beers

Really? The gopro's are so wide angle they usually make it look easier than it really is...lol Especially the hills they really flatten everything out.
I'd recommend you have good tires or you will not be having much fun with all this rain.

I'd go no matter what though and at least attempt the ride. You can always quit. ;) The morning loop will probably be easier than the afternoon because the afternoon loop will be muddy and rutted out from the morning traffic.

Last year I left pretty early and never got held up by traffic but I could see how it could happen if people struggle in front of you. Conditions last year were perfect though.

Flint Ridge is the best dual sport there is and around 300 riders were there last year. There was couple of guys over 70 years old too.

I wasn't aware that Goose Island was bought by InBev. I'm not typically a supporter of macros and the AB/InBev deal left an ESB taste in my mouth. It bums be out to think that GI is just a small asset of a huge global company that may not see their relevance or appriciate their vision. However, wouldn't it be best to continue supporting the same great beer produced by the same brewery regardless of the parent company? I don't know much about what goes on behind the scenes, but from the articles I've read in the last half hour it seems like the biggest change was moving production of Honkers Ale and 312 to larger facilities. This has allowed GI to use their brewery to increase production of specialty beers like Bourbon County. I think that's a good thing.

I don't mean to start an argument, I just want to drink good beer and hope still around when my little girls are of age.
