Call in sick on a Friday, pack a bag, and hit the road! The east coast of Michigan is a great ride. The route is not twisty at all, rather flat, but the views are spectacular! Enjoy the smells (good and bad!) of Lake Huron as you make your way from Port Huron on M25 to Bay City then from there take the M23 through Standish, Tawas City, Alpena, and Cheboygan to Mackinaw City. There are plenty of cheap, clean places to stay the night and tons of places to fill the human fuel tank. Don't forget to sample cheeses in Pinconning, enjoy the daily catch out of Oscoda, and take in a sunrise AND a sunset in Mackinaw City.
