Michigan Roads

Anyone in Michigan know of some good winding roads to hit this weekend? I live in Jackson but will travel anywhere for a good ride. Also, looking for other riders in my area to bike with... I have a couple good friends I ride with but they are on ZX-6R's and gixxers. Just wondering

North territorial off of 23 out towards Pickney there are a few nice roads. I usually ride in between Frankenmuth and Vassar there is a nice loop there also. M-136 out of P. Huron toward m-19 is also a nice stretch.

Not much considering other parts of the country...

Benn Rd in Parma has a couple 90's
Seymour Rd on the north side of 94 going E from Jackson to Chelsea is fun
Huron River Drive from Dexter to Ann Arbor if you don't mind dodging bicyclists, then head up Dexter-Pickney Rd, turn left at Darwin and go through Hell, turn left at Hadley Rd and go through Pickney state rec area down into Chelsea

Try northeast of Kalamazoo County and around Gun Lake. Not too bad, there actually quite a few of those squiggly turn signs

We used to go riding out near Dexter (and Hell too)...some great roads there but you do have to watch out for the gravel in some corners....some vindictive residents have been known to throw gravel down because they don't like the sportbikes tearing it up outside their houses.

That's why I never had any interest to lead a ride when I was out in a group!!

You could also ask the question on the Redline Superbike forum...a real nice bunch of SE Michigan riders who I used to hang out/ride with when I was living there.

Contact my friend Webb (username: Fasterbusa) on there....he knows all the good MI roads to ride.

Cheers,

Sime

I live in this area and it isn't too bad. Anywhere around the lakes has decent roads but nothing like out west or down south. Looking to travel to the tail of the Dragon next year. Thanks for all the good suggestions. It will keep me busy the next couple weeks.
