RAC East of St Clair.

Recommended Posts

Anyone that is familiar with riding in the St Clair area.

When riding west of Rt 61, is there a safe way to cross over 61 heading to Burma Rd or even to the Walmart? We dont want to attempt a crossing directly to it as its 4 lanes of high speed traffic.

Sorry i cant pm on my phone. There is riding east , west and north of Walmart. I dont recommend parking at Walmart. They like to ticket vehicles there. You can park on Burma rd. There are parking areas to unload. As long as you have the parking permit on your dash they wont tow you.

We park on burma rd and on darkwater rd. We have only been there about 6 times so we dont have it down pat as to which area is best.

Just be careful where you park, you might not get ticketed but you will return to a burned out tow vehicle. I will look into a few spots. I don't like giving advice on parking on the forums but if you are really stuck PM me.

If there are alot of tow vehicles in one area the less likely someone will mess with you vehicle. Obviously lock your trailer and tow vehicle. Ive had no problems yet...... Yet

Yep he is right there are some parking areas where there is constant in and out traffic coupled with those who only ride around where they park. Those are the places to look for. Like I said I will get a few good spots that are proven to be safe and possibly post them on here.

I did not post that to scare anyone. RAC has alot of awsome riding. Just so you know that the possibility is out there.

so on a weekend there will be a decent amount of tow vehicles parked in certain spots along burma rd?

I would really appreciate if you could either post or PM me some locations to park and where to head out of also

I don't really want to get into that, but like I said it was just a warning not to take advice on parking spots lightly. If you read about a spot on the net and then you have to drive down a long road to a deserted area where no one can see you just think twice thats all. If it is a popular spot that is safe you will usally see others around.

I believe burma road is safe. Give me a while to look through all of my GPS tracks and then ask a few locals whats going on.

      Well I will be Off the Trails for awhile...who will be riding ??
      I said awhile ago that we would be done for awhile,and we made it back out,but now I know we are off for at least two weekends,Wife is on Call.
      and I might send mine out for some due repairs,that I do not want to do because of the timing,and that I have not done them before.
      I need new brakes,front and rear!
      and A Chain and Gears.
      Deer Season is Nov.15th thru Nov.29th so no riding during that.
      And we need to clean the Garages to get the daily drivers out of the snow,and cold weather.
      So I hope that others step up and get in some riding while we are down.

      I am struggling to find boots that will fit my large calves. I'm not a large person just muscular calves. I wear a women's size 7 but have tried on up to my boyfriend's size 10. Surely there is something out there.... I can't be the only person struggling

      I tried to go to a new spot today but RAC was working at darkwater rd. Anyone know what type of riding darkwater is? Went back to burma rd for more riding. I had the whole place to myself. I love riding during the week. Another thing contrary to what ive read on other forums and even youtube comments, ive met at least 5 employees on the three times i went to burma rd from RAC and two were formen and they had nothing but nice things to say about riders. Everyone of them shook my hand and wave when i pass. Is this a fluke because 682736634647 other riders keep saying they are harrased to see there permits or chased.

      It was nasty at RAC this Sunday with heavy rain. I had a great time. Wasnt too thrilled about the local people riding there (not the nicest ) but would like to thank the guy on the dirtbike for stopping and offering his help. The dusty trails where now covered in a slimey mess which made for great slides! Me and the quad where COVERED in slimey coal gook but alas before I loaded up the quad, I made a few full throttle blasts through some puddles. All clean. The I drove to Wallys and changed/washed up in the bathroom nice and easy. I did about 4 hours of riding but didnt venture too far into the trails as it was only me and I have no reverse. Im thinking I need a Can Am 800mr instead of a sport quad now though.
