Keweenaw Peninsula

Well it was back to the UP for me!! This time I went up to a buddies house just south of Houghton for a few days. Rode all around the Keweenaw yesterday, about 200 miles. Just over 900 miles for the entire trip.

Here are some pics.

Dave, great pictures! We went to Copper Harbor last year on the way CCR and it was wonderful. Really nice roads and scenery.

Re: Keweenaw Peninsula

Was supposed to take a ride up there this weekend. Thing have changed and will only be going as far north as Traverse City and staying at Cycle Moore for the weekend. A great place to stay for bikers. If you are in the area, check it out.

Re: Keweenaw Peninsula

Great pix, Dave. Nice reminder of riding up there. I see ya made the Gay Bar. Get gas too? 100% unleaded premium as I recall. Wish I could find that more often. I'm in Coloma this week, so it's been nice to run without ethanol.

Have fun,
Jer

Re: Keweenaw Peninsula

Hey, Dave. I just found this thread and checked out the pictures. Very nice. I also took a trip down memory lane to CCR2012 and the Ironhorse 2013. Good memories there. Thanks, Dave!

I'm glad you enjoyed them!

There is not much that I can contribute on this site, glad you enjoy the pics.

Re: Keweenaw Peninsula

Me too I did not see them before
Now that I did I am glad I did not miss it entirely. These are real great pictures . . . really enjoying life. I been playing tag with computer failure and summer time power outage so that may account for it.
ride safe
