Grew up riding the same area but all those places were gone by the time i was old enough. Rode bultaco and 7 mile hill thought. You ever ride at the abandoned quarry in Greenbush?

One of our Dual Sport routes passes Bultaco Hill. The old guys in the Club like to stop at the fences and reminisce about the good old days.

Grew up there, just this summer the last family there moved away. I've ridden all those places. You can still somewhat follow the old track behind base, if I am thinking the same one (not the little loop that's a sandy shooting range right at the end of the runway, but further behind base, all overgrown now, some in an opening and much through the woods).

The old bombing range track is interesting on snowmobile, loys of good sized trees in the middle of corners and whoop sections.

I grew up at the top of 7 mile hill, top of the sand hill next to foote dam.

Nice,
I grew up off of River Rd across from Aldersgate apts and rode all over the woods and the trails that follow the AuSable.
The power lines, those were the days!!
7 mile was a blast,
That's crazy you can still ride the track on the base!!

Yup, I was stationed at WAFB from 1983 to 1991. Good times. Stil live in Michigan, but only go to Oscoda with the road bike.

I have some service accounts right on the base as well as some other local businesses. I try to drive a different way every time. Anyone remember Melvin's Motorcycle Museum? It closed this past year due to embezzlement.

That's too bad, I made several visits there when in town. Wasn't open all that long really.

I remember the plan crash too. I was only 7, but recall driving by and seeing the wreckage.
