i run pipes all the way out the back, but i have known of a lot of guys with the same type of setup you have. as long as you arent getting on it or reving it up showing off, they wont bother you. there is a noise ordinance, but like i said if you arent being stupid, they dont really bother ya.

as for the place to stay. if all else fails, you can throw up a tent in my back yard if you would like. i dont know if i will be going up every day or not, but you can "camp" here. i am going to be having a gathering one night, bonfire drinkin etc....nothing to crazy as there will be kids, but all is welcome

I am about 20 mins. away from the dunes.

well I decided to go with a plan B: I went ahead and got a set of flange collectors, and two small mufflers, sized up the collectors at my work, and got 4 u clamps. If the DNR gives me a hassle about my glasspacks off my headers then I will put the mufflers on real quick. For anyone going up to silver lake this weekend, I will either be on a black Honda trx450r with paddles, or my blue CJ5. If anyone needs any help, or would like to meet up call my cell at 734.216.4347

Call Val-Du lakes fun campground (try and get spot near the showers on high ground) I wouldn't drive that far either without the mufflers/spark arrestors I have seen them do noise checks on four wheelers and stuff and i have a Q series on my 426.

I used to stay at Val Dues ALL the time. It's not the same anymore. I was a BIG party, not so much these days. By the bathrooms is the best and honestly that place has calmed down so much it might be the only place would have a site open this late in the game. Last time I was there, they weren't sure if they were going to open the bar back up. As far as I can tell, I think the state campground is the newest "hot spot"...
