Since Michigan consists of two peninsulas, you'll experience two different climates depending on where you ride. The summers are pleasant in Michigan, although you can expect hotter temperatures in the Lower Peninsula versus the Upper Peninsula. The summer passes quickly in the UP, so prepare accordingly with base layers and warm touring gear. The camping is legendary in Northern Michigan, so don't forget your camping loadout. While the summers are gorgeous in Michigan, you'll want to shut all your rides down when the winter hits. You can expect long, cold winters in much of the state, especially in the Upper Peninsula. So get to work hitting all the Michigan motorcycle rides you can handle before the season ends.
Michigan is perhaps most famous for its strong ties to the automotive industry, and you can explore the vision of the automotive assembly line pioneer at the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation. While you're in Detroit, ride over to Belle Isle for a scenic cruise along the Detroit River, or catch a Tigers game downtown at Comerica Park. Outside of Michigan's urban areas, there is stunning beauty to discover. Chill on the beach at Holland State Park, or hike 450 ft. tall sand dunes at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. For an epic ride you won't forget, head to the Upper Peninsula to experience this sleepy section of America for yourself. No visit to the UP is complete without seeing the waterfalls at Tahquamenon Falls State Park. The western section of the Upper Peninsula is quite mountainous for the region, so ride over to Porcupine Mountains Wilderness for some scenic views and winding mountain roads. You might even catch a black bear sighting along the way!
