Me, my brother, dad, two of my uncles, a cousin, and my dad's sister went up to Grand Marais this weekend. Tons of frickin snow!!! Just got back to Traverse City not to long ago, and we got dumped on here too! I think that all of nothern Michigan got about a foot of snow in the last few days.
But anyways, we got up there on Friday night and went on a short ride around the lodge. Put on probly 30 miles in about an hour. Just a short pidely ride. But on Saturday we started late, about 10 am, then went. Put on 160 miles all day. We could have went a lot longer, but the thing is we had to wait for my aunt, who has only rode twice, and only has a Z 370. She did good, just couldn't keep up very good which pissed her off. She wants a faster sled. But then again she has arthritis really really bad, so that made he slow down too.
But there were these sweet trails that you could fly down about 80-90 MPH, then hit a bump, get some air, and do again. That was awesome. When we weren't waiting for my aunt, we were going 80 or 90 all day. Very fun. Had a lot of fun racing my uncles and my dad on the trails, dusting each other, goin side by side. The funny thing is that I can pass them just as much as they can pass me in the same amount of time, and I'm only 14. Don't go thinking that I'm a crazy kid who can't control that power, cuz that would be wrong. Sure, I may do some stupid stuff every so often, but I'm a pretty smart rider. We all think flying at 90 miles per hour is fun don't we?
I may be young, but I ain't dumb!!!
