From discussion of last year’s Longest Day:

For those planning on taking the sandy off-road route from Uncle John’s to Cycle-Moore, there are sections of this route that require BOTH a Michigan ORV sticker and an ORV Trail sticker.   You can buy these anywhere fishing/hunting licenses are sold – Wal-Mart, Meijer’s, Dunham’s  and some “up north” gas stations.  There can be a nasty fine if you are caught without the sticker.

If this is a first sand ride for anyone, there are some good YouTube educational videos.  If you search for “riding a motorcycle in sand”, you will quickly find Clinton Smout:    https://youtu.be/xtBkXA2gfnM    Several club members took his training course.

And from two years ago:

THIS IS AN ADVANCED RIDE NOT DESIGNED TO NEWBIES. MUST HAVE SERIOUS OFF-ROAD EXPERIENCE. YOU WILL FALL YOU MIGHT BREAK YOUR BIKE. etc
