I need a supermoto rim setup for my 500 so i can ride some of those sweet twisties down there too.
Maybe you should just go all in and take a Ducati?

We'll do Shannon. He was going to get w/ you at the meeting for some tracks. I haven't talked w/ him since, so I don't know if he did or not. Maybe you could shoot me an e-mail with some of your track stash?

For sure.

I can't remember, have you been down there before Mike?

Good times!

I really miss the desert. I wish I could ride there right now.

When is the GLDS Tennesse ride?

Once. It rained pretty much the whole time. I was behind Keith when he went over the edge.

I forgot you were there for that. You guys had a heck of a time getting the BRP back on the trail.

Hey man your GS is going to be liking the Dragon.

BTW, did you get that email I sent you?

Few random shots from down there:

Do you guys have a method of sharing good local tracks in the Detroit area?

I'd be interested in obtaining some good rides if others are willing to share. I've just done the Devils lake ride one posted on the GLDS site, but I'm looking to do some more local riding as well this year.

Thanks,
Mike

The riding there is amazing isnt it? We had a blast down there last October! I Dont think I can make it to the Pioneer, TN GLDS trip, but I will definatly make it to Idlewild. It will be my first GLDS ride so I'm really looking forward to it. I'm thinking of throwing the KTM on my brothers trailer, and riding my KLR to Idlewild.... This winter really has me itching to do a long ride soon.
