Thanks for the heads up. By "powersports dealer" you mean dirtbike/ATV dealer correct? Please excuse my ignorance. Is there anyone in here located in Lansing? Just wondering.

I believe anyone who sells fishing licenses also sells ORV. At least I know my Walmart and Mejier do in the gun section.

I've never got one from there before, but I have heard you can get ORV stickers at Meijers?

Yes, you can get them at Meijer. You don't need one if you have plates unless you are going to a park that specifies it or Silver Lake.

That would be correct sir. I haven't even considered buying one yet. Been focusing my money towards new leathers and possibly a dedicated track bike.

I ended up getting an ORV sticker at Gander Mtn in Lansing. It cost $16 and some change. Not a bad deal for an entire year if you ask me. Hopefully I'll be able to get out and find some trails in the near future.

QFT.

All DNRE outlets that sell the fishing licenses and whatnot will get you an ORV tag

I just bought a very nice 07 Taco double cab TRD a couple weeks back. I am loving the truck more and more every day! Can't wait to hit the same trails where I used to take my 4Runner! I am from Holly, MI

What kind of track bike are you looking at picking up? I would love to turn the 1098 into a track bike but I need something else to ride if I go that route. I have a friend with a 1970 Ducati 750 that I would love to buy and turn into my daily ride. I doubt that they will part with it though.

First one will be pretty cheap. Maybe a Suzuki sv650. Ideally around the 3k mark as I still need to afford my triumph as a daily ride.

I have heard the the SV650 is the best bike to learn track riding on. Good luck with that. We will need to get togther in the future for a ride. I am looking forward to getting out there again.

The dealership i bought my truck from sent me an 'Urgent' email to call them 'ASAP' about my truck

So I call them and the chicky says "oh hello, i'm new here blah blah blah"


Basically they have a 'shortage' of 2-3 year old trucks with under 80k miles and are willing to pay me 'well' for my truck and get me into a new one.

Sounds like a sales pitch to me.

Actually. Same thing on my 2011. Actually got me into a 13 for a little less per month and gave me the chance to get a double cab. Obviously it extends my loan back out but whatever. I beat that 2011 pretty good so it's nice to have something fresh.

Yah it seems half way legit. I not disatisfied with my truck so why bail on it and all the progress i've made on the loan. They said they'd get me in a similar payment/month.

I would like to get an Offroad in a new color, like not black.

Camp Grayling

I just spent the past weekend in the field doing Platoon Attacks at Camp Grayling. Good times but what I noticed is that the whole training area is open to drive though. The only area that is off limits is the Impact Area for obvious reasons. I am looking forward to getting my truck up there to do some off roading. Should be a good time. When I end up going I will let everyone know how it is.

Have any of you guys done any off roading there? If so, let me know what you think. Thanks

I have been on a few roads around there, there is a ORV parking lot to the West on M72 by Sunset RD that has mixed use traffic. You will need an ORV sticker for the truck on the mix use trail, but not on the regular county roads. Mostly flat trails with a few hills, and tons of MI blow sand.

I will probably do most of my off roading at Grayling considering my unit trains up there from time to time and I have maps of the entire area. I'll post up when I plan on going up there. Maybe some of you guys would want to meet up. I'll keep you posted.

I used to hit the tank trails on Camp Pendleton in California. They are a good time. I'll have to check them out in Grayling.
