Around The Lakes May 23rd-27th Lake Superior and Lake Michigan

If anyone is interested. No traffic in Canada and the U.P. that time of year. And no bugs!

Not the whole enchalada but do have an around Georgian Bay trip in the works for the same time with a few like minded friends. Plan to make it a 3-4 day ride from WNY with a couple of overnites and some meandering and rose sniffing. A definite Geezer ride.

[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]K7 Wee, rebuilt like new and then some after collision with deer and mildly farkled.

You know the least part of the ride I like is from Ironwood WI to Grand Marais MN. It's just not as exciting as the North Shore of Lake Superior. It always seems colder on 61 no matter what year I go. Maybe thats why.

I have discussed a Lake Superior trip several times with my wife. Unfortunately, I don't think May will work for me at least. I'd love to hear/be made aware of your plans if it would actually work on my side.

I know I'm riding to Indy, NC and taking the family camping in May, so it may not be feasible, but I'd love to for sure!

Hey! Fester you may want to post your planned route and others may be able to direct you to some of the more scenic spots without accually adding more time or distance to said ride example; you were talking about Georgian Bay so I am assuming your going to travel out hwy17 toward Sudbury and then south on Hwy 69 however you could turnoff at Espanola just before Sudbury and go onto Manitolin island and take a short Ferry ride over to tobermory, a much better area then heading down just another patch of 4lane ...

Sometimes making a wrong turn just makes the ride that much better ,,, go an extra mile it`s not so crowded there!
