My Minn-Max Scooter group in Minnesota rode up through Wisconsin to
Ironwood MI in the Upper Peninsula. We anchored in Ironwood at the AmericInn
by Wydham and loop rode out for two days.

This group really travels on its stomach - we try to spend the evenings at local
restaurants recommended by the hotel. I think this group of rascals enjoy fine dinning as much as riding. We had fourteen hardy souls on this adventure that got lost even
with GPS. We were lucky, cool temperatures (UP Nord) and no rain.

Here I am on the left - Note dark sky - smoke from wild fires near Winnipeg Canada.
When the wind direction shifted it would blow off.  Smoke mostly on day one.

Looks nice! Glad Im not the only one to mess up navigation.

Wife and I LOVED going through Houghton. Cool bridge especially. Love their brewery there. Sadly their blood orange tinged beer was a one-off, but the rest is good too.

Did you ride the Keweenaw Penninsula?
Great pasties in Houghton.....

Dave,

We were loop riding out from Ironwood. Hougton was the end of the loop in order
to get back to our hotel anchor point in Ironwood. Regrettably, we did not get
farther up the Keweenaw.

See you soon in Galena.

Here with a little live video of the ride by Rick Hallanger in our group.
We split the 13 riders into two groups. Scooters in one group, CanAms
in another. The riding group is getting older - 6 have elected to move
to three wheeled CanAms.

Nice trip! I just rode through the U.P. for the Scooter Cannonball, but I didn't get to do much sight seeing.
