Just got back from Ogemaw Hills Bike Week (formally the West Branch HOG Rondevue). Wanted to watch the hill climb last Sunday but the tickets to the event cost $60 apiece.
To view the event (already 2 hours into the race) we would have to by a week long pass ($50) into the main fairgrounds area where the hill climb isn't even held... Then pay $10 to get into the gravel pit.
I was treated rudely and when I complained of the pricing and treatment on their sites guest book I was told by the events ppl on their site..
you MY BOY,. ARE THE TYPE OF PPL WE JUST DON'T NEED AT OUR EVENT ANYWAY... SO PARK WHATEVER THAT THING IS U CALL A BIKE IN THE GARAGE AND LEAVE THE BIKING TO US
I guess the rowdy reputation of us K1200Lt riders are scaring the organizers, hehe. They already threw out the local HOG chapter a year or two ago.
So beware, BMWs are not welcome in West Branch Mi.
Not to mention to go watch one of the race it will cost you and your girl no less than $100 to get in.
See you guys this weekend at the Muskegon Bike Time Festival!
