***Updating for 2012***

So I will first start by apologizing for no longer owning a warrior. Just happens sometimes. But If need be I can borrow it back from freddieboy(Joys of selling to a friend). I have been looking at cruisers again, but have too many bikes as it is to justify.

Even though I have been off riding dualsports, dirtbikes, sportbikes, and supermotos I am still here for whatever you guys need. I am pumped to see this thread still alive. This is a great place to organize rides, meets, or just general info. So keep it up!

Due to this amazing summer like weather in March here in Michigan its time to start the planning...

So there are a few events that I know I am going to attend. And some classics I recomend.

The usuals:
Baldwin Blessing of the Bikes: http://www.motorcyclelife.net/motorcycle-events/motorcycleevent.cfm?ID=7510
Midnight Ride: http://www.mi-gmidnightriders.org/2011midnight_ride.htm
Bo's Bash : http://www.rswarrior.com/forums/36-...ugust-23-26-2012-warrior-meet-ohio-there.html
Muskegon Bike time: http://www.muskegonbiketime.com/
The Wide open throttle Fest (T.W.O.T): http://www.rswarrior.com/forums/32-...-throttle-fest-ii-2012-april-28-may-05-a.html
And of course Bike nights in Lansing at Hooters

A couple new things:

-Fox Powersports is hosting a "Drag" night- they are renting out the 131 speedway drag strip. get on there mailing list to recieve details. Oh yeah it's a freeeeeeebie!
-There is rumors of a Grand Rapids Bike week type event
-My buddies and I are tossing around a cirle lake tour.

I did not make a list of the all the Michigan warriors this time. but I am guessing about 30 are on this thread.

So I do not know what I doing for sure this year, due to a busy schedule this year of track days, supermoto days, and such. But I am thinking Amanda and I are in for Midnight ride, blessing of the bikes, and Muskegon Bike time.

Oh yeah, for those of you that know me well I am finally about healed up from the Wreck last year and riding again. Gonna take more than a nasty highside at Grattan to stop me!!!!!

Z, I'm in for as many get togethers as I can make. The Lansing Hooters bike night worked out well because it is so centrally located.


Probably one of the first discussions should be about WF5 and who is going and when. That will probably kick off theevent season for us. Kind of get an idea of who is planning to go and when, without taking up a bunch more room in the ongoing WF5 Open Disscussion thread. I know you are planning on trailering down, but I don't remember when. Maybe add a list at the top of this thread or start a separate one just for that.


Anyway, thanks for being the social activity coordinator.

I talked to Sharp and he is up for some riding this summer, but he can't make WF this year. I am working on getting MotorCityWarrior to go, but he just started a new job, so he doesn't know about getting the time off. We'll see.

Roy,


I'm located in Grand Rapids

Hey in my neck of the woods.


Welcome to the forum! Nice bike I always like the black Cherry color. Like Roy said you will find more info than one will ever need about the warrior here and a lot of really nice helpful people.


If you ever need a hand with the bike, or wanna grab a beer let me know?

Hi all,

I just recently purchased my Midnight and love it! I'm here to represent southwestern Michigan and I think it would be cool to meet up with some other Warrior owners for a couple rides this summer.

Whats the deal with the WF5?I've never heard of it until now.

Hey Jerad, I just noticed that another member here (Scott), works at a nuclear plant here in MI and if I remember right it is the one there by Benton Harbour. He said he is a reactor operator. Do you know him by chance?

WF5 is the 5th annual Warriorfest meeting down in the Smokie Mountains (Deals Gap area). It is going to be April 17th - 24th this year. -Z started this pageto bea list of MI riders that are going down. If you do a search on 'WF5 open discussion' you will see the big list and a bunch of links for lodging and attractions. There is also lots of pages of discussion, but don't let that scare you away. You'll know what I mean when you read it.

Hey Mike, you are still kickin'. I was putting together a list of MI members earlier today and noticed that you hadn't been around since December. I thought something had happened. Too bad you can't make it to WF5, but we will definetly have to get together again for some local events and riding.


Don't be a stranger

Midnight ride my man....August 21st in Rockford MI. Over 2000 riders leave at midnight and ride all night long to Mackinaw. I did it last year was a blast... Maybe we can get a group together for the ride this year?

The ride up there is a good idea, but I don't think I really want to wait in line with 2000 bikes at the gas station every 100 miles.
Asmaller group sounds good though.
