no memberships are required of any type,still just one class at this time ,a drum brake, air cooled ,and twin shocks . must have at least two of these things .We are hoping to change to vintage and post vintage and age groups as we grow ,youngest regular racer last year was in his late 40's

Thanks for the update.
Looks to be a great way for us central and upper Midwesterners to get our vintage/post-vintage fix on.

The race came and went without a hitch, great weather and course layout by Jeff Fredette! Mike Miller from Grand Rapids won the vintage event on a PE250 with 19 dropped points, I dropped 32 for 2nd, and Derek Martin took 3rd.

The harescrambler ran OK, but i'm convinced i need a bigger carb and am building a 36mm Mikuni for it. The biggest challenge will be the airbox-to-inlet connection. It ran great on the top end, but pinged on the bottom from being too lean and would blubber a bit in the mid range.

Next event is in Northwest Michigan at Kingsley.

Most of these events have road sections ,but Roselawn area requires the bike to be plated so to keep it open to all they do a closed course there. Still one of the most fun ones of the series Can't wait till the next one

I rode the family enduro at Kinsley on Saturday and had a great time.Two loops about 20miles each all on private land virgin trail.Some vintage bikes like pe250 it175 episode no pentons. My bad, I rode ktm 200, 6th place, nice little trophy in 60+.We raised 5600$ for a local charity. 20$ sign up, no sound test, no sticker needed on this one.I rode Lawton last year and had fun too.

Planning on doing more of these this coming year. Large fun.
Iíve got to do a new piston in the IT - ran too hot plug in the one event I did and purt near killed it and didnít bring any colder plugs. That is what I get for not doing hard test riding on a new bike build.
Any one know if enduro computers are legal for this class? I think I saw one in use. If they are I might install myself.
