I need to change my oil and pack. I might do a quick lap around the property to see if the suspension works.

Wish I could have made the trip. You guys will love the campground at Long Lake. I’ve been there twice riding with my boys. Campsites are right near the lake. You can ride back up the entrance road to the trailhead. Have fun!

Yeah it was! Anal Butterman did a great job with the planning!

Michigan is fast, flowing and fun! Tomahawk and Grand Traverse are 2 really nice areas. Tomahawk has over a 100 miles alone in multiple loops and you can ride all of one or mix parts of 2 etc. Click on the pic to see the vid's from Fickr.

So much variation. Serpentine ST, then breaks into Sandy straight ST then open ST then drops back into the woods and at Tomahawk, you have alot of elevation changes.
