Michigan Motorcycle Roads and Trips

If you're looking for motorcycle rides featuring lake scenery, Michigan (MI) may be your best bet! The Great Lakes State is wrapped in wonderful Great Lakes scenery as it lies nestled between four of the five American great lakes. This picturesque positioning results in Michigan boasting 3,288 miles of shoreline ... more than both California and Florida and second in length only to Alaska! In between these shorelines motorcycle riders will find countless farms, mills, wineries, and other popular attractions. The topography of the state is generally level yet rises to about 1,600 ft in the lower peninsula and 1,800 ft in the upper peninsula.
