    Greetings to all, been a "stalker" for a month or so and getting too much good information to not want to join. Been a hunter, reloader, collector , competition handgun, prairie dog shooter for a long time. Seems like a great place and you all seem like my kind of people. Regards, Chuck

    Welcome Chuck from an ex Yooper! Good to hear we have some Trolls joining:Dg
    (for those who don't know anything about Michigan, a troll is one who lives below the bridge; ("Mackinac that is"). I think you will enjoy this forum! There is a ton of good info here and a lot of good guys that keep it clean. I've lived in northern Id. for 35 years now, but still have ties in Michigan. Again, welcome to the forum........Rich
    p.s. what town do you call home?

    Where do you ride in the U.P.? I grew up roaming all over the Hiawatha National forest.
