Josh you should really try to make it up to the GLDS CHC. It is the best riding in lower MI. We should get an ADV group to together there and ride. Great routes, Last year there were some nice hills on the route. Also the food was great.

the WR but I rode my KLR there last year. It was still fun. Try to bring a smaller bike. If you can't your KLR would be better than mine, yours looks a lot lighter from what you did to it. Just change your bald tire hahaa. Dont you have a WR?

I just got back from the MotoGP races in Indy. What a blast. It was like daytona bike week-end. Indianapolis had a weekend bike only rally in the downtown right in front of the Homewood Suites hotel we stayed at. I will have to post the many pictures I took.

Yes I am going to Stockbride Sunday. JP is in, who else?

And the Parrot suit pictures!!! They live again.

Bring both man. Use the 640 on the adv route one day and the exc on the DS route. CHC is a lot tighter in the hero areas than the rest of the GLDS rides. Last year it was on part of an enduro route. I think it is the same for this year. I know after riding the tomahawk with steve sometimes I think my WR is too big for that system. A nice light 250 2 smoke would be great for that trail. But the WR should be perfect for the DS route.

I have this tire you can have. It came on the bike when I got it but I got a new one. It has about 70% of the tread still on it. I could help you put it on if needed.

JP,

What time are you going to head over to Stockbridge? I think I'm going to ride the Harley out there on Sunday.

Holy crap! did anyone see that hunk of junk GM put out today. It sure did not look like the Volt I saw at the auto show 2 years ago. Talk about a bait and switch.
This thing is uglier than a Prius. Only goes 40 miles on a charge and is said that it will be 40grand. Good game GM.

Volt 2 years ago


and now
