First and Foremost: This is a freeride, show up ride, meet some new people and have fun!
PLEASE READ THE FIRST POST, I will make sure it is up to date in a moment. If you havent read the OP here is the most important parts, but I highly recommend you read the OP.
As many of you have heard Torch lake cops are not going to sit back and let you act a fool on the water. We are all adults if your ski isn't legal that's your choice. However, What is important to the entire group is that we don't give the cops a reason to pull us over! let them deal with the drunks on the sandbar and not us.
150' from all boats.
Idle zone 150' from shore
Idle zone 150' in and out of sandbar (idle to and from sandbar)
Boat launch, river are also idle only zones, From the boat launch idle out to the bouys (its not that far). Torch Cops are aware of the faster idle speed for stand ups to stay balanced.
Once again if you want to drink you are adults, but I ask for the sake of the group that you wait to after the riding. We want to save face with the locals and the police and stay on there good side.
Couch Vwake: I dont have any official times set up, but we will probably run this a few times during the day. Please make sure to give each other plenty of space, including space for the sit downs to turn around etc. If the day goes good, we may be able to let my fathers crownline take a few laps in the late afternoon for a nice wake.
The couches will most likely have cameras, So if you want to make the film get close enough where they can get a good shot!
Tshirts: I will be selling shirts, I only have a handful. $15 each first come first serve, If I run out and have enough interest I will do a second order and mail them to you. I will post up where you can purchase the shirts soon.
If you haven't been to Torch, we meet up on the sandbar. Most likely there will be a 2010 black and white crownline set up on the sandbar with a Torch lake Freeride banner. If you can bring scissor stand or some rope and tie up in between riding (if someone in the group is bringing a boat that works well). Most likely you will launch right next to the house I am staying at and see my ski if Im not out already. Please don't stop here, I am staying here with several families that are not associated with the freeride. We will meet on the water, see map on first post.
Hey moto x - didn't you have your SXR on craigslist last year? Is this the one you sold? If you wanna ride I can bring an extra stand up for you. Its nothing fancy, just a 550sx-650 conversion. Something to get you around the lake if you wanna ride tho. And maybe are g/f can keep each other busy while we ride.
Ya that was mine. I actually sold it for more than I wanted and more than what I had into it so I cant complain. Next year Ill Have a new one. I was gonna buy a rn sj Right now but I bough another rocket instead.
So yesterday it was push 100 degrees and i figured i could put off cleaning the house to have some fun on the lake. Drop into the lake, take of, do a little bunny hop or two, and CLINK!!! What the hell was that? hmm no steering... get back onto shore to find this...
atleast it lasted me the weekend at torch!!! lol
