Just bought it last Friday at about 8pm and had it loaded up on the trailer for a trip to Silver Lake Sand Dunes the next day. Put on just over 100 miles and lets just say that I am quite impressed with how this thing handles the bumps and hills. And I am a 1st time SxS owner too. :smile2:

Welcome powerranger!
I am also from Michigan we are getting ready to make reservations for a early fall silver lake run after the summer prices end. I rented my first RZR there and bought one that fall.

I will have to keep an eye out as we are planning another trip early fall sometime. Couple of friends are wanting to take their tractor tire trucks up there and don't want to go through the hassle of having to get parking lot vouchers.

Do you need parking lot vouchers if you stay at a local hotel and ride in.

After Labor day they do not require parking lot vouchers, so parking is pretty easy. The first weekend after Labor Day is Apple fest up there and if it's busy then they will use vouchers. As far as I know you cannot ride a SxS into the dunes unless it is a Ted and insured.

Yes we are cancelling are plans to go there I have drove a rzr I rented there. I like to ride and having to trail it to the motel and haul it everywhere is no fun.
I am going to stay in wolf lake and ride the Lincoln hill trail it has been about 15 years and then I had my 3 wheeler. My hunting property is in Irons.

Wow trapper your hunting property is just west of reed city were I work and I'm just east of that! Question: what have you found is the good air pressure in the tires at silver lake was thinking about 8 lbs. would be were I would start. Maybe will see you over in wolf lake and do some riding will have to see if I'm working or is my weekend off. have you ever checked out Wiskey river camp ground? nice place and very SBS friendly.

For Silver Lake, I was running 5.5 lbs up front and 6.5 in the rear. Could have went lower but it did fine out there at that pressure. Only clicked it into 4 wheel drive one time when it got stuck in the trees.
