    Meet and ride the tip of the mitten of Michigan

    I know its the middle of the never ending winter here in northern Michigan but its never too early to talk about meeting eating and riding. I'm in East Jordan and just wondering if there might be any more hardy north country folks that may want to get together every now and then to talk about and ride motorcycles. I would be ok for Touring, sport, and or adventure style no matter as long as there are motorcycles involved.

    Sounds fun. I am not real familiar with the 'back roads' of Top of the Mitten, but pass through often enroute to Traverse City via Gaylord/Alba/Kalkaska or Petoskey/Elk Rapids. I do ride Eastern UP often, too, as that is closer to home. Keep me in the loop.

    OK.
    Let me know next time your down this way.We should hook up and do Tunnel of trees and Wilderness state park. I can meet you at the Big Mac. That is if the snow ever stops.
    P.S.

    Greetings -
    Yea, this winter has dropped pretty heavy on us, but it won't be too long . . . .
    I live in Cadillac & get up your way on occasion - My ride is an R1150RT - Finished a Four Corners USA trip last fall and am looking for a ride or two this summer -
    We'll have to link up once the weather breaks.

    Take care
    Jake

    Hi Jake, I'm planning a 4 corners ride this May, with my brother who rides a Yamaha cruise ship, so I'm looking for pavement back-roads with views and scenes to see. We plan on camping, so other than the fact that he has an old Yamaha Ventura MC which is not suited to even gravel roads based on his riding experience, (last on a MC back in his teens and now in his middle fifty's) any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I think winter is finally over. Any plans for a get-together?
