UPAT-modified
 
I can't sit still and I can't wait any longer. Myself and 3 others will start a modified version of Cannonshot's UPAT on Thursday. Instead of 1250 miles we will be doing roughly 1000.

Anyone else going to be riding the UP over Labor Day weekend?

My riding partner of 30 yrs. aka my wife and I are leaving on Thur. morning from the Lansing MI. area for a trip using as much of the big bike route and trails we can handle. Both on 1200gs bikes trying to pack as lightly as possible. I don't know if we will get up the Keewanaw or not on this trip. We have both lived in the state our entire lives and have never been to the Porcupine Mtns. We are starting out at St. Ignace.

Cool.

We will be staying in St. Ignace on Thursday Night. There will be three Yamahas and on Aprilia. There will also be 2 Gold Wings meeting us in St. Ignace and Copper Harbor (a '76 and a '08).

If you see some fat kid pedaling a mountain bike down the trail towards copper harbor with a bunch of camping shit strapped to it- that'll be me. :wave

Going to defend my Western Central Upper Peninsula Touring/Super-D/XC combined championship this weekend at Fat Tire: http://www.keweenawadventure.com/fat_tire.htm

Should be a pretty good party in CH on Sunday night.

There is a group of 9 from North Carolina that will be starting it from Gwinn next Sunday or Monday.

Hope you have a blast Curtis. Enjoy the custom route.

Not an American living abroad.
 
For anyone not in the know, Cannonshot puts together some great rides.


Hope to get a chance to ride this one with the KTM this year!

Watch out for Drunks! We always seem to import plenty of them for holiday weekends.

Well we made it to KI Sawyer today. Hoping to hit the trail by 7:30am tomorrow. :freaky

I'll be up there on my EX500 for the weekend. Friday and Saturday night I will be featured at Keewenaw Brewing Company and The Downtowner Lounge if you'll be in Houghton area

Daughter and I will be camping in the Yellow Dog Plains/ Huron Mountain area. Big Erick's if there's a spot, otherwise somewhere back in the sticks. No Queenbee unfortunately, she's in California taking care of her sick and aging mom :cry

If you ride AAA road or Northwestern road we may cross paths.

In any case, have a safe ride.

Cheers,
Dave

ANy changes in the riding up on the plains since the mine operation went in? Truck traffic on the AAA/510? I would assume no changes on the NW trail thru Dodge City due to the mine
