Picked up a new 2013 Cam Am Outlander Max Limited and I'm going to head down the week of Oct. 15. Staying at Black Dog Ranch again. If anyone is in the area, stop on by.

Well, I'm not leading this parade, so I don't know where we're riding on any given day. Maybe we can hook up.

GRRRRR...My furnace decided it didn't want to work for another winter. Looks like I'm getting one that isn't 30 years old!!! Guess I'll have to pass on this trip.
Enjoy your rides, be safe.

Hope mine decides to work when I go to fire it up. I'm trying to hold out till November before I crank up the furnace.

Well we have already cranked them up here in Michigan. I wondered about mine too TW, mine is 20 years old. It hasn't been run too much the last 10 years since we put in a pellet stove.

Well that trip didn't last long. 1hr and 20 minutes. Took off from the trail head on hwy 52 for Buffalo Mt. Went up 94 and went into a rut which was no big deal until I found my self pretending to be Superman going over the handle bars. Looked back and the tire had popped off the bead and cauded the rim to dig into the ground. This tore up the a arm and tie rod. I winched the front end up into a tree and got the tire back on the rim and inflated. BUT had to ride backwards down all the way to civilization, about 2 miles. Got it home, all told $1000.00 in damage so far.

Dang Flipper you're having a tough time lately. In August you had to hike out of the Swell which could not have been fun in that heat. Good news is that you are OK, bikes can be fixed with enough money. Good luck on your next ride.

Sorry to hear about your luck Flipper...if I had been around you I would think my bad luck rubbed off on you. We got in 50 miles at Burning Rock Sunday and I spent about 40 of it worrying about the stuff I repaired/replaced from my last trip down there.

I'm hoping this bad luck gets me out its system. That way next year I'll be good to go.

Ditto the other comments. Anyone that has ridden very long has a similar story. It sure does stink though when it's your turn. Finally get to go riding...and ugh. The big disappointment. Sad
