Here is my idea for a spode fest in July.

We can meet at the Lansing Motorcyle Clubgrounds in Moorestown (directions: M55 exit off of Hwy 27, go 13 miles east to 7 Mile, turn north and go 10 miles, at the stop sign go straight until the black top ends turn left, clubgrounds will be on your left). Lots of room for primitive camping.
If possible, we can get together Friday night after work. The plan would be to ride 40-60 miles on Saturday.
There will be an opportunity for some friendly competition on the clubgournds - winner will be declared "King Spode".
The Sunday ride will involve trailering the bikes, but it will be worth the drive. I found 20 miles of very good trail and the plan would be to ride it both directions.

I know some guys were trying to plan a Spode Fest in June. Please do! I wanted to wait until July to include some guys who could not do a weekend ride in June.

I know we have a lot of time until July 20th. Please let me know your thoughts. I am looking to forward to seeing some old friends (Fred T, walkman, jr, motodilbert, and Jeff Allen) and hopefully riding with some new friends (rickshaw, Max Factor, etc...).

Count me in! I just rode the area this past week-end with FredT, we had a great time.

Mike, we road out of the county line. We went east to Stratford, then east to the West Higgins loop. We just did the northern section of the loop. Then fire roaded back to the county line. For a lunch break. 51 miles. Then we went west over to old 66 and then fire roaded it back to the county line for a total of 70 miles total.

Let me know what I can do to help.

Sounds cool Mike. Count me in.

These sections of trail don't involve street legal only bikes do they? Not that I have ever done any illegal activities before mind you. :cool:

Sounds very cool! I'd really like to meet some DRN'ers. I don't think that there'll be any complications, so count me and my buddy in.:)

Jeff, The trails I am planning to ride do not require much road riding and being street legal is not a requirement. We will make arrangements to trailer the bikes when extensive road riding is required.

Hey Jeff,

Long time no see! I will definitely plan to ride at least one day. I sent an e-mail to Mark W. to let him know in case you haven’t already done so. I have ridden from the LMC club grounds for many years (Jack Pine Enduro) so I am very familiar with the area. Crank up the compression, slow the rebound, and put on a fresh set of 755’s!
