I'm very interested. I ride a KLX250s, but my brother in law just bought a brand new wee-strom. Is there going to be any tight stuff that would be tricky for a bigger bike? I'm sending this thread along to him.

Interested

Will entirely depend on the weekend. I will check back after the vote is expired and let you know for sure.

Even if offroad is too much for a wee-strom and rider, plenty of other riding available based on the post.

We’ve said it before, but it bears repeating; the GS handles in ways a two-story building was never meant to.

Taking collections for Faye Butler Training please spare some change.

Remember red and yellow make orange.so to think orange is better means you have to use two steps to get there.

Yes, and there's less tricky stuff for bigger bikes too if he's interested. Several people rode bikes over 400lb.; they just can't go as many places.

Anything is possible here, and all bikes will have a variety of terrain they can ride!
Paved roads and a great road tour to Traverse and Leelanau area.........
Dirt -gravel roads for miles and miles, wide enough for cars.........
Two-tracks with a mix of dirt,gravel, and some sand.............
Single track for the adventourous guys on dirt bikes, last year we had 1200 GS's and a Goldwing with a side car on the same route. It wasn't super easy for them but it depends on rider experience and how you like to roll.......
Power line trails, hill climbs, trails thru the bush.............

Anybody can ride up here, on any kind of terrain, if you don't like the dirt section, hit the gravel roads or pavement for awhile. We try and meet for lunch or snacks in the afternoon at a location centralized to where people are heading.

The fact is, anybody can ride whatever they feel most comfortable on, we don't have any 100 mile single track loops that you would be locked into.

Last year we had everything, 125 2-smokers up to Bmw 1200's and Goldwings..............the usual offenders of 300's 450's, 640's, and everthing in between!

Bring what you got and ride it, Plenty of people to help.

It's not "if" you tip over, it's "when" you tip over!

Cheers, looking forward to alot of new faces

I had a "wee" strom up there on Shinko 705's last year and had a good time just blazing our own path with dmarino riding the tiger 800 on TKC 80's. There is literally all kinds of trails/dirt roads/scenic paved roads to please everyone. If your Brother in law is adventurous and not afraid of sand (deep at times) you could go anywhere on a wee strom, just not as fast as the dirt/true dual sport bikes. TKC's will make life a little more easy going but nothing is impossible.

Even 900lb Goldwing hacks have been known to appear.
