    Lake Superior Tour



    Clicky -----> http://goo.gl/maps/Dv0op

    Got in the last big trip for the season and since I KNEW for sure the north shore of Lake Superior scenery wouldnt disappoint decided to do the whole loop. Went with a biking/wheeling/diesel friend "Funinud" (member here). No bike issues and only seen 1 deer, Mama bear and cub and a whole bunch of dead skunks

    Left 7am Tuesday morning +/- 1100km to Thunder Bay and overnighted there. Next day +/- 700kms to Marquette MI and hit rain for the last 2.5hours. Then +/-700km back to Sudbury Thursday and home by 6:30pm (most of that leg in the rain.) Temps were cool and of course the rain part always sucks, but being warm/dry with proper gear makes the difference for sure.

    Great run, stopped in at T-Bay, Duluth, and Marquette Harley Dealers - all very nice and well stocked.

    Grand total on the odometer ended up at 2470km

    Originally from TBay and have done most of that drive (not so much back through WI) many times - it sure is beautiful country.
