What's your steed?
I'm thinking maybe the end of May? Turns out my weekends are booked up until then. It'll also give me a chance to ride a few more dirt roads and get used to the bike. Honestly never realized how much more difficult dirt was than street. I can't shift and control the throttle standing up! lol

Greetings

A few things about me:

I am a great big fat guy.

Live just North of Detroit.

I have a 2008 VSTROM I bought last year and am just getting dialed in

I have nobody to ride with at the moment.

I'll be keeping an eye on this thread and hope to join one of the rides soon.

GLDS Manitou Beach Sat April 26

Some of us may ride to the GLDS Ride this weekend in the Irish Hills. We can meet either at my house (7 Mile and Beck) or at the Shell Gas Station at 5 Mile and Beck.

Will take gravel roads from Northville to Dexter and can meet up with inmates from that area at the Coffee Shop (that means you Ricardo) From Dexter we will take Island Lake Rd to pick up a portion of the GLDS route to the Irish Hills/camp site. Download the Hellnback track from the GLDS site

Debating brining tent/sleeping bag to spend Saturday night there

Paul

Looks like a pretty good group of people - I was hoping to be able to tag along but my DR is still in pieces. Lots of "while it's apart" additions to the original plan.

Detroit greetings

Thanks for the advice on how to go to Hell, rode that pavement loop out ot Hankerd yesterday. It was great, that left hander from the south was awesome, I went in way too hot and discovered that my skills are way less rusty than I thought. I think I was still braking past the apex.

I will look up tho ORV routes, hoping to grab the Sherpa in mid-may.

I would be interested in meeting up with you for the Manitou ride.

I will meet you at your house or gas station whatever you prefer. What time do you want to leave?

klingons?

Been stalking this thread occasionally and see that the ride has gone west! Any formal invites needed to join Saturday's festivities since you are going to be in my backyard? Would meet in Dexter, time?

Manitou

Not sure about packing a tent, modeling might be an option.
