Default Northern Michigan Ride & BBQ Aug. 3,4&5

Hey Everyone,



My brother and I are going to host a ride here in the Indian River, Michigan area. He has a nice piece of property just 2.3 miles form the I-75 and M-68 intersection, (exit 310).

There is lots of room for rustic camping or your camper.

We are posting this on the Advrider, KLR.net.

Because we are so far north, we should be able to get a pretty good turnout by inviting people from both sites, and we all seem to enjoy the same kind of riding.

We will have 3 different tours available.

The "off the beaten trail pavement ride".

The "off the beaten trail pavement, dirt road and two track ride". And

The "bring your knobbies, wear the proper gear and go though the best deep woods and trials northern Michigan has to offer ride".

My brother Tim,(bald headed freak), will lead the pavement ride. I will lead the pavement dirt combo ride and my buddy Joe, ( Sloppy Joe), will take you out and get you muddy, and maybe a little lost!

Anyway, just wanted to throw this out there and see how much interest there is.

There is also a Holiday Inn express, State Park campground and other accommodations, (beer), just a couple of miles away.

You are welcome to come in on Friday. We will have bon-fires in the evenings and good old "out door cooking". There won't be an actual charge, but as always, donations are appreciated.

Anyway, take a look at your map and you will see that there is a lot of great riding in this area.

We are just a few miles from the Pigeon River Country, M-119, "the tunnel of trees" and more cool back roads then you can believe.

If you can make it, we would be glad to see you.

Please feel free to email me at billprice@voyager.net



Thanks

Bill

Hey,

My buddy, Sloppy Joe is not going to be able to make it for the ride.
That wouldn't be a problem, except he was suppose to lead the "no pavement ride".
So do to the fact that our guide can't make it, and there is also a big dual sport ride the same weekend in Newberry, I think we are going to reschedule that part of the weekend.
We are going to have a pretty good turn out of pavement riders so that part is still on for the weekend.
I think we will try to reschedule the dual sport ride in September. It will probably be better conditions then anyway.
Hope this dosen't screw anyone up to bad.
Please let me know what weekends would be best for you.

Anyone who wants to ride some of the best paved back roads in Northern Michigan are still welcome.

Thanks
Bill

Well, it's getting closer!

Anyone who is thinking about coming, please email me and I will give you an exact address and directions.

I would like to get a tentative head count so we can start making all the necessary arrangements.



Thanks

Bill
