What's up!?
Name is Dave and I live near Flint, MI in Grand Blanc.
I have an A18 with about 11,2xx miles on it. Pretty much stock except for Enduro Engineering hand guards, Dual Star skid plate, 14 tooth front sprocket, removed windshield. Stock doohickey (will replace someday). Need new tires soon, my Kenda k270's aren't looking too great. Probably will go with Bridgestone BT45 or Kenda k761 as I am going to only do street riding and maybe a dirt road occasionally. (Tried to go up north twice now, once was somewhat ok, the other a complete failure, so I'm gonna stick with the street. I'll probably try to keep the KLR for a couple of years and then I'll probably get a street bike again.) Guess that's all for now.

Battle Creek, MI here, I ride everywhere I can. I do mostly steet with an annual trip to Enduraid to get my off road fix. I sometimes go to Huron National Forest by Luzerne to ride in the summer. ( my family has places up there) You'll find my A17 at the Marshall fire station many days that I work.

I'm in Fort Wayne, IN. I'd really like to take off for at least a weekend and ride around on the fine trails that I know MI has. It seems the ultimate trip would be the one planned by the CCCM through all the counties of the UP.

So far I've only ridden my KLR on the street so I'm interested in touring through the woods too.

Not that far maybe 2 hrs, I work with a guy from Monroe (he doesnt have a KLR though).

One of these days, we need to get a bunch of us Michiganders together for a ride. We always talk about it, especially in the winter but when summer roles around theres always other things going on. Maybe this summer?

I'm only 3 hrs South of MI in Dayton, and have family in Adrian and Grand Rapids, so I'd be very interested in a Spring/Summer ride in MI

Hi all Mark here AKA Flying dutchman, and yes I have the scars to prove it!!
I live in Grand Rapids, MI. I have been a life long biker mostly into street bikes but would like to combine my other outdoor activities ( Huntin, fishin, campin) with riding.
I recently purchased a klr650 and look forward to exploring northern MI with others of like interests. Hope to see some of you soon!
