Thanks for the info regarding suitability of a Vstrom. I ride a KLR, pretty much anywhere, but upnorth Michigan sand and me just don't get along that well. I do like camping and beer. And the KLR runs Kenda knobbies. I've got it on the calendar!

Best option is to put a tire chock on the hack and tow the XR up. I'll have my XR600 there this year, and hopefully my brother will rock the KLR. Which brings me to Old's post about sand.

I added bead/rim locks to my KLR and run 14psi on sand/trails. It's an amazing difference and really makes it more than tolerable. My next step is to add a 12V outlet so i can air back up on the go, but I only run low pressure after towing the bike to trails with friends.

I'm sending a check out tomorrow, last year was easily the most fun I had with pants on.

Haha that was a hilarious maneuver! I can probably best my height from last year on the XR though, the hard part will be doing it on purpose this time. It really depends on trailer space, plus I just got my XR road legal yesterday for the lunch run so that gets priority. I definitely don't want to miss out on that longer ride this year.

Sounds like it'll be a good time - I'm in.

In all seriousness, that shirt needs to come in a blue and white option.

thanks Ryan.

Thanks again for setting up event.
T-shirt looks awesome and post that pic as I know where idea was from.
I sent in a money order to enter in the raffle.
I am hoping to win the tent with bike garage so I can just stay there until Oct.
Maybe Bells will give you some free stuff? I am drinking that Mich brew.
Looking forward to event.
Any inmates considering should sign up, great riding, great camp area, great bunch of people.

Check is in the mail for DMarino and Caniculaveritas! Now I have to find something more sand worthy than the Wee Strom so I can have some real off road fun!
