Yeah, I'm ready for a ride! Was gonna go to the Byron,IL race, but looks like its been rescheduled.
Since I've got a pass for the April 1 weekend, would you post trail conditions in your area towards the end of March? It'd be great to be able to go riding April 1! Maybe the Kalkaska area will be OK by then?

I'm ready also!!! My dad and I were suffering from PMS = Parked Motorcyle Syndrome. We went to Bike Week in Daytona for the first time and were cured!!

The Kalkaska area at the end of March (beginning of April) sounds good to me. However, my relatives in that area still had a lot of snow on the ground last weekend.

Walkman, since you live in the area please keep us updated on the condition of the trails.

KXKEN,

The trail system starts north of Clare for the central part of the state and north of Muskegon for the west side. Sorry, no trails in the SW.

Walkman and jrccc,

Do you guys ride the CCC trail tours? I am planning to attend the Whiskey Creek ride the first weekend in May, but I am looking for a trail ride in April. Maybe we can hookup?

still snow as far south as gladwin, not enough to ride sleds, but enough for rough riding, it's melting fast and as long as we don't get a bunch this week and get rain instead we should be okay for the first of april!

Went to Cedar Creek ORV trail (north of Muskegon) yesterday. Still had snow/ice/deep water on the trails if you were in the pines, but pretty much clear trail if you got into open. Some places even had 4-6 inches of snow.
May take some time for it to clear up, the pines are pretty thick and not much sun was getting thru.

let's mark the 13th, how does the geel's system near st. helen sound? i've ridden the north loop and it is a good one, they've now got a connector to the south loop so it would be a good ride!

Ben,
I let you know when we head out next, might be heading down to Logroad MX in Coldwater sometime soon.
When are you planning on going to Silverlake?

The bike is running great now, new top end (wich it needed badly) and some Boyesen Carbon Fiber reeds really help and no spooge at this time.
