Many a time, I love that ride. Just got the scoot all back together so I guess you can blame me for this cold and rain lol. I am not making the flood run this year but you never know, you just may see me along the route lol. Ride safe
Warhawk, no need for an apology,
Now if I had been standing in an empty field a 1000+ miles away on the 16th of August ...well maybe...it still sounds to be a good ride.
I will check the rally out you mention. I am typically solo but never turn down advice or friendship..except under special circumstances.
Thanks for the advice on DUI. Luckily no such problems for me but do I need a windshield? I am going to have to look that one up.
any and all are invited to come to oscoda on the 16th of july to the oscoda area for our annual!! it is a good time and we have alot of places to camp!! if you are not into the rustic then the area has alot of good motels at a reasonable rate! come join the fun!!
i live in oscoda on the north-east side and it is a beautiful all the way into the upper pen. if you are around on the 16th the jokers are having their annual that weekend stop in and ask for "batman" it is a good time and we have 10 acres to camp on.join the party!!!!
Junemoon thank you for the tie breaker. Yes, I have noticed a petrified forsest park along the route.
Having seen the petrified forest in Arizona and its agates it would be neat to see one near the bed of an old glacier.
Thank you for the suggestions of places to see and telling me more about the water. Sounds like I might find a good skinny dip spot since I won't have saddlebag space for swim trunks. Any good jam or canned goods along the route for a hungry rover?
By the way, as a tie breaker....I would suggest late summer, just because the water does get warmer than 56 degrees, it gets up into the 60's, so if you're into swimming....Not only that, we have such a long spring that early summer is a little more spring-like with the rain and it can be colder...It's not as cold as everyone thinks though!
Awesome idea for a ride. In order to do the whole "circle tour" though, you shouldn't end your trip in Mackinaw! I live in the Upper Penninsula, near the tip of the Keweenaw point, so I can tell you that if you miss the Keweenaw, you haven't seen it all! It's all beautiful, and you're bound to enjoy yourself where ever you decide to go! Make sure to stop at the many beaches to pick a few agates!
Thank you Ladies for your advice.
Although now I need a tie breaker or some influence because I have an early mid and a late summer suggestion.
It looked by the map geography to be a great ride. I would be coming at it from Minnesota heading north to Thunder Bay and then over to Killaraney for some camping. I have been to Killaraney Ireland so I think it would be neat to see Canada's version and the map is indicative of some nice scenery. I would finish by back tracking to Mackinaw or possibly catching the fairy and coming over through Port Huron. (guidance?)
Thunderunderme..you are in Ohio! When you get your grip let me know and I will try to help you get out more often. : ) keep those wheels maintenanced for when the time is right you need to sit them alite and fly!
Good choice for a ride. I spent a few days last fall (late sept.) in the Upper. Munising Mich. Beautiful country and the weather was in the 50's. I'd say early to mid summer. I'm not sure of the route name but take the ride along the lake. It starts near Mackinaw City and goes along the lake to Munising. There is some great hiking too if you ok with leaving the bike unattended for a few hours. Enjoy the trip. And remember, you can actually drink the water out of Lake Superior without treating it. 56 degrees all the time and crystal clear.
