You will laugh at the photos that show up.

Electric starters are for senior citizens, and girly-men.

Thanks guys! In about 46 hours I'll probably be knee deep in mud with little orange showing.

Now I have all these spare parts.... might need to buy a frame and start making a smaller displacement ktm. My wife wants a bike now.

This sucks

Been having problems with my power all night. Consumers has been here working on it since about 11PM. Acting like a bad neutral wire with fluctuating power levels. Took out my microwave and my computer. Apparently the surge protector couldn't handle 190 volts. I may be much later to Idlewild. I need my beauty sleep.

Thanks. They ran a new temporary wire from the pole through a pine tree, over the roof of my gazebo and wired to my raingutter. They left at 5:30. The supervisor is supposed to be here by now.

ORV Park in Oxford?

In the Clarkston news
http://www.clarkstonnews.com/Article...rd-boards.html

The idea is buy some of the old gravel pit land and create an 800 acre "multi-use adventure park" including ORVs.
Looks like it is being pushed along by Oakland County Parks and they are just in the "What do you think?" stage. Sounds like it's also a very slow process.

I'm pretty excited about this. I'm also happy the OCPR is doing it. I think they would do a much better job than the DNR. They have some damn nice parks.

The land is about as good as you are going to find around here that is both available and a large enough plot. There are very few homes bordering the property so that should help with noise concerns.

Some pics from this weekend's Idlewild ride. Great ride - sorry the pics only show the local gas station (aka gourmet lunch stop).

Great time riding and hanging out.

Jon & Matt are hard core GLDS rookies. They both rode the Saturday and Sunday loops, all of it, from start to finish on their very first outing. They did so despite Peter's merciless alcohol pushing ! Well done boys.
