So, trailer your ATV to the Mackinaw Bridge, unload it, ride across the bridge (and back, I would assume), and buy a patch? Do I have it mostly down? Seems weird to have a 3 day event for that.

Heres some more info.

The New Lower Peninsula ORV Association:
Proudly announces
Trek The Mighty Mac
On October 10 / 2015
We will be riding across the Mackinaw Bridge in parade style, riding through the town of St Ignace, having a catered buffet luncheon, possible Mud Bog, beer tent and possibly entertainment. Four wheelers / ATVS / side by sides only at this time. No one under the age of 16 will be allowed to drive on the bridge.
No three wheelers due to insurance and safety regulations.
Free shuttle service while staying in St Ignace, were hoping to set a Guinness world record for the most Atvs and side by sides to cross the bridge at one time. We will be able to ride from St Helen to the Soo Locks and maybe to Newberry for people feeling ambitious. Hotel reservations and map details are being worked out by the St Ignace Chamber of Commerce and the Visitor Center. It will be a pre registration , pricing has not yet been decided. Please help spread the word.
TREK THE MIGHTY MAC


and there facebook page.

I don't want to plate a 125, that is the reason Not to mention a 125s stator isn't powerful enough for a headlight so I would have to get a new one, and I don't want to worry about blowing it up.

I did comment on the facebook page and they said dirtbikes will be allowed, no Harleys or crotch rockets.

I hope me and my 250r is heavy enough not to get blown over the side like that Yugo did.
