This isn't looking good.
Meijers trails, you might have to step up to the plate.

Is there a lot of dirt roads in Washtenaw County?

Looks like fun. I'm looking to do my first longer distance trip this weekend on my bike, but since it's new (to me at least), I wanted to go with someone. I always doubt the reliability of every bike I ride when I first get. Seems bulletproof, but it's always something in the back of my mind. I want to take the pig off road and see how she handles on some tougher terrain. Hard packed dirt roads don't offer me too much in the way of testing off-road capability.

Yes, there are alot of nice dirt and gravel roads in washtenaw county, but mostly gravel.
None of them are challenging for a 650, you have to go father north for that, but its not about that, its about the scenery and solitude they offer.

Completely understandable. :)

I was out by Milford not long ago, and it reminded me of growing up in Gladwin a bit. Little north of you guys, but a nice area. Speaking of a tad north of you all, I heard a rumor that plated bikes can ride on snowmobile trails. Is this accurate in the slightest? Highland State Recreational Area has snowmobile trails...

Only if it doubles as a orv trail or a seasonal road.
If not, you better not get caught on it.

Bummer. I think the closest ORV place near us is The Mounds in Mt. Morris, isn't it?

I'm still learning places to ride down here.

Rain



I didn't get a new tag, was dressed inappropriately for the rain. If anyone has a photo meeting tag criteria go ahead and take my tag turn otherwise, I'll do my best to find something this weekend... You could also go to Crooked Lake and re-tag the picnic area.
