Hope we get there earlier this year, need more time to hang out and enjoy the place.
Hell I'm 40.
6 or 7 minutes of romance and I'm good...

So there's a group staying the night up there?

We ride up and stay one night on the beach, during the middle of the week. Last year I think there were about 10 of us. We camped on the beach, which is about ten miles out on a dirt road from Copper Harbor. The actual little town is touristy and has normal lodging though.

There's a little clip of the place below. Ignore me bitching at my husband I was a little paranoid about getting another flat on my bike cuz I had just had one the day before and those rocks along the shore he was tearing around on looked pretty iffy.

The lighter you go, the more fun you'll be able to have going in and out. I broke a panier mounting bolt on the way out. Of course, OR riding skill or experience might have helped...

Update on the Keewenaw.

Some information I need to share for people that ride any of my Keewenaw tracks.

There have been some changes in the area. The local ATV club has been able to establish some new ATV trail segments on land owned by a forest products company. One of the stipulations for those segments would be that no motorcycles would be allowed.

The issue here isn't whether you like that or you don't, the issue is that riders in that area need to be aware that motorcycles are legitimately not allowed in certain places. This is all motorcycles - ORV and highway registered.

The other part of this issue is that the club has put up signs prohibiting two wheeled ORVs on some roads that are on the county highway map that are not trails on private property.

Askel should note that one of his favorite spots (Fish Cove) is also likely signed prohibiting no two wheeled ORVs even though the roads appear on the official county highway map. (James, next time you are there please let me know if and where it is signed.)

Although I have not read the county ordinance on this subject (if there is one in place) it is clear that DOT licensed motorcycles are entitled to travel roads that are on the official county highway map (even though they act as an ORV and are stickered as such on ORV trails).

So to prevent confusion when you encounter one of these signs, you must consider whether you are on a licensed motorcycle on a road that appears on the official county highway map OR if you are on a TRAIL segment that is posted closed for motorcyles.

There is no problem getting out to the tip at High Rock Bay on a DOT licensed dual sport motorcycle.

Hopefully we'll develop more facts about this before the season starts.

This sign is on Mandan Road.

As always, thanks Cannon for all the work you do, all the travel and time you put in on your own, making it possible for those of us who only get up there once a year to know where the hell we should be going.

Should we be looking for ORV stickers for our plated bikes?

The 2012 ORV permits will be for sale 1 Mar 12. They have $16.25 in the past. Best to buy them on line instead of at a local vendor - better sticker.
