Hi Ace,
I spend my summer not too far down Hwy 29 from you. I am just north of Menominee off 25. I will be back in about 3 weeks. I am planning on going to Grattan, MI in June for the Ahrma weekend. If you are really planning on racing 200gp, you should checkit out. If you are not ready to race this year, It would be a nice ride over on the Wing through the UP and down to Grattan. It is just north of Grand Rapids.
