Grayling Trail Report – Fay’s Motel – 02/07

Greetings Sledders,

We are grooming and I still think that and after getting a first hand look at the local trails as well as the trails further north that a poor rating is accurate to the south and a fair rating works further north, say north of Frederic.

I haven’t been on the trail south of M-72 but I did take a look during the thaw and it didn’t look good.

There’s a little snow in the forecast and even a couple of inches will help.

Ride Often and Please Be Safe,
Keith, Sandy and The Girls

They could have waited till a dryer day it rain a bunch yesterday, they left tracks and tore up the nice packed surface

I'm glad I ride in the mountains where you don't see a groomer or a groomed trail. I couldn't do the flat land😂🤣

Wow I used to be a contract mower for the State of Texas wish I would have had something like that to cut grass with but I don't understand how they're leaving ruts when they're using a tracked vehicle like that

Anyone notice the huge boulders down by otsego lake... disaster waiting to happen when they get covered in snow and someone’s ski clips one!!

27 from waters down to Frederic needs to be repaved. With all the accidents on 75 that is the go around route. It's so bad they can't even stripe it anymore

Trail 7 is the new "bike/walking" trail, cant ride my dirtbike on it anymore.

It stops at waters. Still the same to Frederic

that trail is totally fucked they made it so narrow with a wire fence. How is anybody going to pass a groomer. They made that trail unsafe. Let's see how many people get fucked up because of that wire fence this year.

It’s to slow the throttle jockeys down some. But the rocks are a problem. Many cedar post got broke last year. The snow was derp

Keeps the kangaroos away,

Have they fixed 27 yet!!

Call the dnr Paige perry 989 732 3541 express your concerns complaints before they try to take that trail tell all your freinds call you have to be heard...👊

Bryan Baryenbruch think you would get stuck with that? Lol

Matthew Patton wonder does Trevor Devlin get a name like this

Kevin Toombs is that you lol

Hopefully they rip that fence down along the trail

Rocks and fence = bad idea

Grayling Trail Report – Fay’s Motel – 02/06

Greetings Sledders,

Well here we go again, another gut punch just when we were dialed in with some very nice conditions.

Too much warmth and humidity followed by too much rain and we are back to icy conditions.

To add insult to injury we had a breakdown Friday night and two and a half days were wasted chasing our tails trying to determine the cause. Is it a fuel issue, something mechanical, or is it a random electrical problem. Electrical it was and it took a tech from the dealership all day Monday to track it down and repair.

We are now back to 100%. So we wait.

We got about an inch overnight and I did a test run to see if we could possibly go out and iron out some of the moguls that were left from the weekend. I had limited success with the mogul part but the real problem was dragging the snow along the icy stretches because there isn’t enough surface tension to pull the snow through the drag. So we wait.

The forecast doesn’t look all that promising with freezing rain tomorrow and no measureable snowfall until next week. So we wait.

I’ll get another report out as soon as conditions look to improve or if I should get tired of waiting and decide to write one for the hell of it.

Ride as soon as we get snow as it may not last long,
Keith, Sandy and The Girls
