Figured I would post some dates that Iíll be riding quads incase anyone is interested in joining. Our group stays at Silverlake Campground and Resort. We sold our toy hauler last year, so this year will be my first attempt at double towing my fifth wheel and a small trailer with the quads on it. Hopefully it goes well......haha.

Silver Lake is cool. Been there a few times. Unfortunately I am out of town those two weekends.

I have 2 under powered Honda 4x4's so I haven't been to silverlake. I used to really enjoy sand when I rode sport quads. I had a couple 400ex's and a Can-Am DS450.

SL is fun but with the amount of inexperienced drivers there, itís a ticking time bomb before you have a major accident. No way Iíd go there on a holiday weekend.

I soooo miss being out on the dunes at Silver Lake. I spent many summers up there. Have fun!

It helps if you have a sport quad. Typically a 2wd, lightweight, big hp machine is more suited.

If you have a big heavy 4x4 the sand if fun. But less technical climbing and no mud. Just depends on what you enjoy doing.

But man, some days the sand is so smooth and you can rip! Then jumping off of the tops of the dunes to catch some serious air is something else. Especially with the back drop of Lake Michigan.

Is it legal to tow tandem like that? I've never seen anyone do that(aside from doubles on a semi)

From what I looked up, it is. 60ft limit in Illinois though. 65 in Indiana and 75 in Michigan. Hopefully I can scoot out of Illinois with no issue.
