Keweenaw...copper country. it was a blast, and everything worked. the bike was flawless. probably not a ride to take your wife on because many of the road shoulders were slim, but for me, it was worth it. I found that Michigan drivers do their best to give room on the road for a bike. there are some hills to deal with on this route, but the scenery and cool temperatures made me forget about them. it started out shaky because my aircraft optical tach battery died and then my left headphone stopped working... so I reached back and got a new battery and a spare headphone set and carried on. all taken care of within minutes. aircraft is a small Van's RV9A.
Tuesday - fly from Cincy to Houghton airport (4 hrs) and ride to Lake Linden campgrounds
Wednesday - ride to Copper Harbor and Wilken campgrounds, highway 41
Thursday - ride back to Lake Linden campgrounds, route 26 (north shore) and then highway 41
Friday - ride to Houghton airport and fly home to Cincy, but I took the Keweenaw air tour firstly... to see where I had ridden.
total cost for camping accommodations = $72
after a couple days I realized what was different about this place, it is sweet smelling clean air. I could feel it.
