Lake Superior Circle Tour

Whenever and wherever riding enthusiasts congregate and discuss the best places to ride, the old standards like the Pacific Coast Highway, Cabot Trail and Deals Gap come up often. I recently started hearing about another one lately that had me intrigued - The Lake Superior Circle Tour.

After booking a week's vacation and a BMW K1600GTL a month in advance, I finally set off from my home in Toronto, Ontario during the first week of July to enjoy some long days on the open road and warm nights by the water.

I did the ride from west to east in July. Very little traffic, great road conditions, great folks along the way ! Rode up through Illinois and Wisconsin and down through Michigan

If you just went the U.S. area of Lake Superior you will have missed out on some of Ontario and the AWESOME scenery...
It is spectacular ...
I hitch hiked that Northern Lake Superior Route in the 1970's,to the west coast.

Then 13 of us hopped a FREIGHT TRAIN in THUNDER BAY and rode it back to Toronto...
Now that was an Adventure!!!

I did this ride last summer on my 1098S. It was a great ride!! We did it from Minneapolis, then around the lake clockwise. It was a great ride, I think we are going to do it again this year, but this time I will do it on my Husqvarna supermoto bike.
