Default Michigan trail riders

I have a couple questions for you guys. 1st off I will be looking for someone to ride with alot, as my father probably wont ride as much as I will want to. So I want to see who rides the trails (LP). 2nd off I want to know about different trail systems and how you guys would rate them. I have ridden the Cadillac trail system the most. I have gone north of Traverse and ridden the Maple city trails, and just South of Traverse there is a shorter trail system that I have ridden. I am curious, just let me know. I am real curious about the Allegan trails as I have friends in that area I would like to take riding. Thanks guys.

Dude welcome to my backyard!! I'm just south of Allegan and get tons of lake effect snow. Bryan comes up riding too so we could all get together. Fuck the trails I'll show you some killer boondocking, that is if you can handle it with that heavy ass triple. I'm ok with playing on the trails too though if I have to lol. Shit intro me to your friend and I'll take him riding everyday lol. I leave my motorhome setup next to my garage so you could even camp out if you wanted.

I will be moving to Saginaw, I dont know if you are familiar with the area or not but I was told that there are some trails up in the thumb. My buddy lives in Kalamazoo(I used to also) and he isnt into snowmobiling yet...I hope to change that this year. I cant wait to ride with you mud..and hopefully IBS. I would love to go off trail with you, but unfortunatly I would have to get a different sled to do that effectivly. Have you ever been to the Cadillac trail system?

I trailer to Cadillac whenever conditions down here aren't ideal. I end up heading to Cadillac at least once every 2 weeks if we don't have enough snow, I try heading up once a week. Really depends on the workload at the shop.
I work in Kalamazoo!! Small world huh lol. So in other words you need to buy my long tracked triple?
Edit: When you moving to Saginaw?? We'll be able to split fuel costs to group rides lol.

I literally am moving the day after Haydays. I would love to go on some group rides and save gas....as the Guhlbus drinks gas like I drink beer. What long track triple do you have? I might be interested eventually! I would like to maybe get into off trail riding but I dont want to get out of trail riding...as it is the only thing my father does...and it is great spending time with him in the snow. He is getting to old to try and learn the off trail stuff. A triple long track would be great...I wouldnt be caught dead riding a twin.

I haven't been trying to sell it very hard lol. I'll have a swapping booth at the Hastings snowshow in oct and it'll be for sale there. I'm not pushing it hard enough to sell it though lol.
I got bored with trail riding last year. Anyone can go in a straight line with a handfull of throttle. I'd rather play where if I fuck up I get stuck lol.

I might be interested in trying her out, but it would have to be after I start my new job and get on my feet. How much power does she put out?

I would prefer an XLT RMK, but I would consider it though. I would never hear the end of it from hog if I bought it. It looks nice, I would probably replace the hood. Come winter I may just have to test drive her. But if you have a chance to sell it before hand...dont wait for me.

Allegan trail system kicks ass, except there's a section of the loop that's closed.

Better buy the long-track Harry .... Once you go off-trail, it'll be boring like Mud said to ride just trails.

Harry, I picked up another RMK. Now there is no excuse for you to not come along on a ride in the U.P.. Guarantee you will dump that Storm and buy a long track.

I will probably never dump the Storm, I love it too much and it is so nice. Another reason is that as I stated earlier my father will ride nothing but trails. I want to spend as much time as I can riding with him, as he will not be around forever. He is only 50, but has had a heart attack already. I will try it out with you guys, then if I like it I might buy one. I would then sell the Arctic Cat. What other RMK did you pick up ?

I got a 2005 800 with a 159. This has some upgrades that I was going to do to the 04 so I figured it would save me the work, the wife can ride the 04.

I might try and find an inexpensive Wedge RMK, preferably an XLT. Maybe even an evolved 500 for cheap. But I would have to get it cheap to justify 3 sleds. If you guys see anything let me know. Keep you eyes out, I am not picky but I know how to work on both of these sleds and love them both.

You don't want an xlt, you want a 650/rxl lol. What is this kitty you speak of? Maybe we could work a trade if you could sweeten the pot. My teenagers want a sled they can ride. They've already wrecked one sled and I'm scared they can't handle the power of the triple lol.




PolarisRich you need to make it over here this winter dude. You just bought a fancy fuckin truck what more do you need to haul one sled? We'll open up my camper and camp out for a weekend lol.

It is a 1993 Arctic Cat 550 EXT EFI. The sled is in perfect shape, it truly is. The thing is very easy to ride and hadles much better than my Storm. It isnt a turd either. It is faster than my uncles 2002 Polaris 500 Classic. It has in the neighborhood of 4000 miles. I have some pictures in my Garage but can get you some more. It needs nothing Mud.
