A GLDS Weekend in Michigan

I headed up Friday morning from West-Central Indiana with the DR350 hanging off the back of the Jeep...



Stopped on the way up to see the lake..





I guess they take this kind of seriously..



I followed some of the forest roads..



Stopped by the river..





And eventually setup camp in Mike's back yard..

Saturday morning John and I drove into town for breakfast. The Jeep's thermometer indicated 33 degrees. I guess it had gotten a bit chilly overnight..



After running Mike's 0.52 miles of singletrack, it was time to hit the road..









There were some very lovely roads..







Soon enough it was time for a gas stop at Gun Lake (I think)..

There is some seriously fine riding not so very far from Indiana. Now that I know it's there (I've SEEN it!) I can strategerize dragging Pinktoad along next time..









Not mud, but sand..

Looks like fun! I'm in SE MI, near Ann Arbor. Any of you folks out my way? I'm hoping to pick up a DRZ400, my first dual sport, this weekend.

I just drove through there on my circuitous route home. I recall being told that there are some lovely dirt and gravel roads West of you off the North side of highway 12. Probably perfect for the DRZ400.
