    Any Trails in southeast Michigan to enjoy the TW

    Bought the TW about 2 months ago, first bike I ever owned. Put over 1000 miles on it riding the dirt roads near my home, but looking for a little more of a trail/off road type ride. These things are too much fun! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated !

    Do as advised about the DNR...^^^^.... We have sooooooooooooooooooooooooo many two tracks that work very good for new riders.. Our DNR trails are well driven on and become very sandy (AKA sugar sand) Mich. has 5,500 miles of snowmobile trails but not that many wheeled off road trails that are legal to ride on.. We go to the U.P. and ride the logging trails and back roads for miles. OMM.

    Got to head a little farther north to get to the trails, but I've found lots of fairly decent gravel roads here in the thumb. I'm in Romeo, if you want to ride up this way some time.

    Absolutely fantastic sucker runs there in the spring! Went every year with 5 or 6 friends for an entire weekend. One year I hooked a big fish and the river was really clear. I immediately identified the fish as a walleye and was sure I was going to have it break off. Five nerve racking minutes later I landed a 14lb walleye. Biggest walleye I ever caught. I removed the hook and slipped it back in the river. I will always remember that day.

    The salmon report isn't good. Charters/fishers are hoping it's just a late run.
