Michigan motorcycle rides offer some of the most beautiful scenery to be enjoyed anywhere in the entire country. Thanks to the largest State Park system in the United States, Michigan has preserved much of its natural beauty for you to enjoy as you and your friends explore the state on your bikes. The topography in Michigan is gently rolling with lush green trees covering much of the landscape.
There are two peninsulas that make up the state of Michigan. The Lower Peninsula is the bulk of the state, starting from Detroit in the south and heading north between Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. The Lower Peninsula has most of the population of the state, yet still provides some great Michigan motorcycle routes. The Upper Peninsula is actually connected by land to Wisconsin, and is separated from the rest of Michigan by the Straits of Mackinac. The Mackinac Bridge connects the two peninsulas, making it possible for your Michigan motorcycle tours to hit both great locations. Less populated than the Lower Peninsula, this part of the state offers some extremely scenic motorcycle roads to try out.
Because of its northern location, Michigan is great for summer motorcycle rides. The summer temperatures are very comfortable, often in the high 70’s and low 80’s. The winter might be a little cold for all but the toughest of riders, with daytime highs often not passing the freezing mark. The reputation that Michigan has earned for being a tremendous outdoor haven is well earned. Plan a trip and have the adventure of a lifetime on the roads of Michigan!
