Parts are on the way! Hopefully here by the end of the week.

I owned this town on that thing last winter.

I found it on craigs list last summer but, there is a dealer down in South Lyon

You bet it's 2wd! It makes it hard to turn when in reverse and deep snow

Are there any new "Tip of the Mitt riders" around here?
I'm riding a XR400 mostly these days.

Heck yeah!

I dont have a good "offroad" bike right now, but i get around on my quad or vulcan alot in the summer time, trying to pick up a bike for this summer, but finances...

I live on that road right behind Papa J's

KDX220 would be a nice ride, theres a yamaha TTR 250 on craigslist for $1000 right now I was thinking about converting over... Also looking at the XT350 up in Petoskey, and the 1987 suzuki sp125 enduro that just showed up for only $500,,, but again... finances...

Well, wifes sending me on a general store run...

There are a lot of fun dirt roads to ride around here, I was exploring down burnt mill this summer, theres a little bridge you corss over then go left up a hill on nice seasonal roads.

Cheers!

New ORV sticker

Hey, I believe the new ORV sticker comes out in 1 month, 3-1-12.

On a side note. I picked a good time to get a new bike. I get to go to the sec o' state with all my license renewals at the same time. Then I get to ask for new gear for my b-day!

Nice pickup! I was really trying to pickup an SP125 a kid out in Gaylord had for only $300, but he traded it for a truck, i was all set to drive out there today and get it. So the search continues for an inexpensive bike.
