(Though not always at the time it's happening. That's what friends are for!)

What's even funnier about the second picture is Mark just standing there laughing.

That's the implied intent of the writing that precedes the photo. "That's what friends are for!"

We rode that same section of trail again, i'm sure John and Jonathan were wondering why i was going so slow thru there.

I was lucky that i made it out unscathed, some bad juju there !

Deer hunting

Not to rain on your ride but Nov 15th is the opener of deer hunting in Michigan. I think I would be a little leary about riding in the woods with all the armed deer hunters out their. You might want to check the DNR web site, I think they have strict hours of went you can ride in the woods at that time of the year. If you guys go good luck and have fun.

Thanks, but I don't think it will be a problem where we ride. We stay on the roads.

Trails are partially closed during part of the day. I would not try it. It is hard to identify a shooter in the woods, bullets can go anywhere and hunters know it. I knew a guy that had a bullet go through his snowmobile.

If someone takes pot shots at us while we are riding on dirt roads then something is seriously wrong. This is Oakland county you know.

I would be leary about riding up North, but I promise your safety on this ride is assured.

Except for the bad JU JU trail. There is a higher power working it's evil on that one.

Count me in on that elusive wildlife. I can't seem to get one of the 4 legged ones. Maybe I'll have better luck.

I don't know yet. It will not hold an idle. It will only run with the choke on. I am hoping it is bad gas. I am going to clean the carb and change the gas.

Cool, keep us posted. If you can't fix it, Bruno has a spare bike now. (I think he bought it just for this reason?)

Bring a flashlight, we can explore a haunted house that Todd showed us!
