I've ridden in the UP once a year for the last 3 years. A few things I've learned:
- Michigan's H-58 (Munising to Grand Marais) is one of my favorite roads to ride, ever. Miles and miles of moderate twists with halfway decent sight-lines and a pretty good road surface. Plus it runs right through Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.
- I love the little town of Grand Marais. There's a large campground (probably 200+ spots) right in town, and tent-only sites are inexpensive. Nice little harbor with a great view of Lake Superior.
- I enjoy riding lakeshores, and I've circled both Lakes Michigan and Superior. In the UP, the Lake Superior is far -- ahem- superior.
- When it's 6:00 a.m. on a Saturday morning and you're riding the flat, straight, open stretch of highway into Sault Ste. Marie, keep your speed in check, or you may get the opportunity to meet one of Michigan's Finest. DAMHIK.
If it's a good day to wash the bike, it's a better day to ride the bike.
