Anyone have ones of these going this summer? If not, does anyone want to put some thing together? Maybe something following lake Michigan or something?

One of these fine days I'm finally getting around to doing the Lake Michigan Circle tour. 900+ miles. (I think 986). It'll be over a thousand for me going way around Chicago, and countless lil' turnoffs.

I'm up for either/both, mid Michigan or Lk superior ride
Hello Spaz,

I am in the Lansing area. Where are you at?

I am in the midst of organizing a first week of June (a 3-4 day) ride around Lake Superior. But we may shorten to it to a 2 day ride up Lake Huron and back down Lake Michigan via 'Tunnel of Trees'. There is a nice place to eat called Leggs Inn---search it out.

I will be up for trail riding this Spring/Summer.

Thanks
Simba

How about a 2 day ride---up Lake Huron, a night in Mackinaw City, cross the bridge, back down Lake Michigan via 'Tunnel of Trees'. Its a paved ride all the way. I would be up for trail rides later after June on the weekends.

I see where your talking about on this website. Cheap and I are down in South Bend Indiana basically. So it will take us at least 10 hours to get up there. Tunnel of trees looks awesome though and crossing the bridge would be awesome! Don't know how we pull this off, where would we all meet and start the ride. I think we have our first step in the right direction. I ride the red arrow, blue star route and the south bend to four winds casino route all the time. Let's use this website, or one similar, gives everyone a good idea on what we can do.

A shirt with the bridge or something on it would be awesome...

My wife said she would follow us in the van with goodies, food, pop. That might help us down here for the long ride up there... We got some riders in Fort Wayne and other spots. we need to check the user map and see who's down for a trip

Simba, I'm over in Fowlerville. I've done that tunnel of trees ride. Very cool, I'll def do it again. Any route is good. I have a camper on a small lot near Harrison that I sometimes base rides out of. Whatever/where ever/whenever, count me in.

Okay friends, we have a beginning!
Riceinjected, take over from here. I am in for most weekends, but not all.
I just came back from Western trip together with my family and in-laws who had not seen the Grand Canyon. I had trailered my KLR650 Tengai which i got to ride here and there, but got to ride from Moab to Potash to Schafer Trail----wow! Another bucket list item done. The bike did fabulously. I used Avon Gripsters which were great especially there was very little deep sand.

Any ride from June 2nd to June 6th works for me. Also. as I said earlier most weekends work. If we have a solid group of a few riders, we can have some who can't make any particular ride.

My wife would also bring our van/trailer for carrying tools, bags, etc. We are not big into tenting---in fact, I don't think my wife has ever tented! So overnight trips would have us in a hotel.

This is looking like a week of the 4th due to people having it off from work already. Spread the word, all bike welcome of course. I just started this one klr650. Net, hopefully I don't get people mixed up. I will be making a list of people and there locations, some people we might pick up, on the way since we are coming all the way from niles. Is there a way to look up riders in the area and send private invites incase they are not aware?

Columbus Ohio? Maybe the weekend before. Like, for me, I'll have to leave day one, do the ride day 2,and come home day 3.its going to take at least 6 hours to get to harbor springs or Petoskey. I'm not going to race up there, the highways sucks and I do think feel like getting ran over by a semi... That's why I I'm dedicating a whole day for the travels.

Thinking about riding up on Sunday, doing the bridge and tunnel of trees Monday and riding home Tuesday. Anyone's else?
