Last ride we did through the area, we left the meeting point at about 12:30 and rode until around 4, with a 20-30 minute break about halfway through. We covered about 110 miles on a mix of both paved and gravel roads.
The Irish Hills area is the area around Brooklyn, Chelsea, Hell, etc.

I"ll offer to lead the group around the Irish Hills area on the 18th. I lived in the area for 25 plus years. My route would cover twistie roads both gravel and paved in 3 counties. Jackson, Hillsdale and Lenawee.
Please note that this thread is the same ride plan as currently active in the North America "Midwest" thread titled "Forming a regional "club" - MI, IN, OH, ONT" Please go to that thread for the latest updates on the July 18th Irish Hills ride.
Last time around, we did a pretty even mix of dirt roads and pavement. None of it was difficult or in poor condition. I will also add the note that it had rained earlier, which helped pack things a bit and kept the dust down.
Depends on how comfortable your buddy is on dirt, lol. My friend with Triumph T-Bird was debating it, as well, until his wife give him his chores list for the weekend.
Recently, a group of us from southern Michigan got together for a ride in the Irish Hills area of Michigan. We had a great time, and got to talking about the idea of forming a club of sorts for riders in southern Michigan, northwest Ohio, northern/northeast Indiana, and SW Ontario. Anybody else...
This spring I plan to take a long weekend ride up the east side of the Mississippi River from Dubuque, IA, all the way up to the headwaters at Itasca State Park, then back down the west side.
Does anyone have any must-ride routes or must-see attractions in the area?
