Guess we should start with a simple check in.

"Hi, I'm Yooper_DRZ and despite the name, I now ride a '06 KTM 640 Adventure. I'm located in Marquette, and also have a cabin over by Curtis."

Hey Yoopers! Way to go. You 51st staters at least deserve your own thread. I hope the south of the bridge livers, like me, can join in your rant on occasion.

Hey Cannonshot what is this 1000 mile UP trip in june that you speak of?

I'd say 98% FIB and 2% Yooper wanabee. I know you can never be considered a Yooper unless you were born there.
If you own more land in the UP than anywhere else, I say that counts!


My name is Jim and I'm an alcoholic, I mean yooper!

Best part about riding then is there are no bugs yet!

Hmm,March does sound Rideable, thanks for the heads up!

Hosted this ride last year: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=258833

Said I would host it again this year (since all the planning is already done). I'll post something in Central the first part of March.

If any of y'all in or near the UP are looking for something to do this weekend...

The Keweenaw Winter Rally is going to be a blast. You can point and laugh after I stick my car in the ditch.

Pictures from the first round of the series:

That makes me qualified as well. I'm a troll (Grand Rapids), but have land about 15 miles SW of Munising. Skeeter, we are practically neighbors!

I love it up there but definitely don't get up there enough. I would love to join in some rides up there so will keep an eye on this thread!!

Sorry...that doesn't make you a Yooper...just a poor excuse for a Yooper "wannabe".

My family has been in 'da UP since the mid 1800's.

No delusion of being a Yooper here, but to clarify my post, hopefully I can lurk on this thread and join in an occasional ride!!
