I did a couple of days riding the Red Ghost around the Shenandoah National Forest. I also camped there. It resembles the Black Hills somewhat and is worth a look-see. Be careful if you get off of the main roads. They are tar and chip construction. When I was there the loose chipped gravel was thick and I hit one spot where it was piled about 8" deep across the whole road. Pucker time.
That is a great ride. I took it 3 years ago. Camping on the shore of Lake Superior was the highlight. A lot of the roads you will travel are rough riding but it was a great trip. If you do the tunnel of trees make sure you watch for sand in the curves. :surprise:
And read up on the Mackinac bridge if you have never ridden on it. The outer lanes are closed for construction a lot of times which means you ride 5 miles of steel grate while being buffeted by strong winds.
Well it turns out the original trip is on still, We are gonna head south to Memphis then over to Hotsprings AR, and after that we could use some suggestions thank you to everyone that has posted already
