Ride around Lake Superior summer of 2020

Post by Wirelic »



Hi to all

I’m in the process of restoring a 78 GL1000, detailed separately on this site. I plan to have it ready to ride by June of next year. I’d really like to ride around Lake Superior for its maiden voyage. I’ve lived many years near its southern shore in Michigan’s upper peninsula, but have not ridden around it. (Now live near Green Bay, WI)

So, two things: I’m looking for any advice or suggestions from those of you who may have done the ride. I plan to camp, so campground recommendations, great places to eat, points of interest and so on. Anything you deem helpful to someone who hasn’t made the trip before.

Second thing is if there may be one or two riders on here that would like to ride along? I usually ride solo, but if anyone else is thinking about making this ride, it’s possible we could ride it together. Please remember, I will be camping. Trip will probably be in August as bugs are much less of a problem then. So, let me know. Thanks!

If it makes sense in your schedule, Jay Cook state park just south of the Duluth has a nice campground. Stayed there recently on a North Shore trip.

Saganaga,

Thank you for your recommendation. I will check out that state park. I’ll be coming from east of Green Bay, so perhaps that would be a good spot for the first night out. Or last night, depending on which way I ride around the Lake.
