I have done Lake Michigan before, this year I'm going to try Lake Superior, it's supposed to have much better scenery.

EDIT I think this is the same route as Chey's but shorter.

LSD to route 12 which takes you up past the Indiana Dunes and into Michigan. I great ride for a starry summer night. Nothing technical, just a long cruise to enjoy the night. Pit stop at the beach and look back on the distant skyline of Chicago.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

There are some good routes out towards Indiana by the Dunes.

Southern Wisconsin is kick ass as well. Best place to ride closest to us. Anywhere in the Kettle Morane (SP?) is Great. Explore, get lost in the letter county roads. Lots of cool small towns and nice twisty roads.

i am stupid too then.

here is my thoughts, SURE i wanna ride along with new people and stuff like that.

BUT with a trip that long, i honestly would like to do them private with certain friends.

the amount of time on the road and all the possibilitys of peoples ego's to you name it could ruin my joy for the trip into trying to get some cock sucker home after he balled his shit cause he thought he was rossi trying to kep up with a goldwing or something.

i dunno but i think i get my point out there some where
