Silver Lake sand dunes in Michigan. They are in Mears, Mi i think so you can go look it up on the map and see how far away it is

It is not about "WHAT" you ride, It is about "IF" you ride.

Re: Dunes?

Silver Lake Sand Dunes isnt to far from me...just 665 miles or approx. 15 hour drive :-) I will have to do some sweet talkin to get the little lady to make the trip. I just want to ride in the sand...its a dream of mine. Any others around on the East Coast of the nation?

Also, since we are talking about the subject of duning, what is the clean up process like after a day or two in the dunes? just like mud or worse?

Re: Dunes?

kinda like mud but you dont have to steam clean you do however before you go , want to make sure your air filter is well oiled and make sure you check it regularly

Re: Dunes?

cdk357;
Also check out Little Sahara Oklahoma... it may be around the same distance for you. I am much farther east than you and I have been to glamis once.... Silverlake twice and I am planning a HUGE trip to Little Sahara Ok in sept.
As for maintaining the bike before and after duning.... Always go through the bike from top to bottom before a big trip... you will be happy ya did!. Grease all the pivots, repack all the bearings. Sand is easy to clean up after... its not like mud, but its a good idea to tear into the bike when your back since sand gets into everything.
No matter what you bring w/ you for spare parts... the one thing you will need you wont have.
