Default Yankee Springs Ride August 11th!

Let's ride! ...

YS area Saturday (Aug 11) by about 10am. Why don't we all agree to meet at the intersection with the store/McDonald by the park entrance. (Corner of 129th/Hwy 179 and Patterson)



I know there are lot's of mountain bike trails, does anybody know about motorcycle legal roads/trails? Even if we had to stick to street, the curves all around the area are fun, but I would like to explore a bit too.

It's too bad we didn't get a pic of the friendly conservation officer posing with the bikes. Nice guy for sticking around and chatting.

"If you're down in this stuff, you're pressing your luck....."

Good thing he didn't show up about 5 minutes sooner. We'd have been pressed.

Calling all Great Lakes guys with old doohickys
or those who have tools and experience, we talked about a Great Lakes tech day and we have a good central location with Heepbuilder, now we just need to set a date. I think I will at least order the shorter spring to make sure my 08 can do the doo.

I know there are peeps in Grand Haven, GR, and up North, check in and give us an early Fall date we can all live with, so we can ride and doo. If we meet at Heepbuilders we will be close to Yankee Springs for some curves and sand.

What say you Great Lakes?
