Very handy indeed. A courtesy sound check at the CADVR might be handy for riders to see what their exhaust output level is as a reference. Nice score Cannon

Plus, we are able to head off any unreasonable complaints by being able to say that we sound test as part of the event.

Sound issues seem to be one of the complaints people make (justified or not) that can have an adverse impact on us expanding our riding opportunities.

I know that many of the clubs conduct sound testing at their events. The intent here is to do testing at informal rides and events like meet and greets, get-togethers, ice riding, and other informal rides.

I'll be keeping a log to demonstrate that we are conducting tests and that nearly all of the readings are within established standards.

More to come on this.
Same here. I got my kit last week. If anyone wants to get tested, shoot me a PM.

Last year's application for District 16?

I'll print off some log sheets for you so we can track the same data.

I'd be curious about the YZ. I'm sure it's over even with the new packing

One of the benefits of us having these meters. People can experiment until they get it right.

Yes, They said I was denied the grant last year, then all of a sudden I'm getting one sent.

If it's an excel file, you can just email it

Good to hear about the meters guys. Folks in the arrowhead could use some testing, if you find yourself in the area.

Wisconsin's inland fishing season opens May 3 but anglers will not be able to use campgrounds in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest that weekend, forest officials said Thursday.

Opening of campgrounds and recreational trails in the national forest are delayed due to recent snowfalls and wet conditions from a prolonged winter season up north, forest officials said Thursday. Snow was falling Thursday in Rhinelander and Eagle River.

All national forest campgrounds are closed until further notice so visitors should check the website www.fs.usda.gov/cnnf or call district offices for updates on campground openings.

Anglers will be able to walk into lakes at campgrounds even if gates are closed at access roads. Some lakes remain ice covered this week.

All recreational trails in the national forest will remained closed until May 22. An exception might be trails in the Lakewood-Laona district in northeastern Wisconsin, which could open by May 15 depending on conditions.

"Every year we work hard to get all of the campgrounds open in time for the opening of fishing season," Forest Supervisor Paul Strong said in a statement. Strong acknowledged the delay will disrupt plans of anglers and other visitors.

Be sure to check BenRon's WR; he's such a dick. (Inside joke from the Twin Cities BS thread)

It's been checked. It passes with flying colors. Along with all the rest of my bikes... well, Maybe not the rokon, that thing is loud, But I'm trying to fix that. Sound pollution must not have been a big deal 40 years ago...

I took a ride through the SPRA last weekend. There are some really great trail riding opportunities there. Hopefully something pans out.
