New this spring: Ride Lake Superior available at Gooseberry Falls State Park

Gooseberry Falls State Park is one of Minnesota’s great destinations. Located on the North Shore of Lake Superior near Two Harbors, it’s a favorite stopping point for motorcyclists.  There are trails to hike, great camp sites, and, of course, the waterfalls.

This year, while you’re out riding, stop in at Gooseberry Falls. And take a stroll through the gift shop. You’ll find copies of Ride Lake Superior there.

Ride Lake Superior Heads to Michigan

Copies of Ride Lake Superior are on their way to Michigan as I write this. Specifically, they’re headed for Tahquamenon Falls Camp 33 Gift Shop.

If you have never visited Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, I urge you to go. It’s one of the most beautiful places in the United States, with lots of curvy roads explore by motorcycle.

Tahaquamenon Falls is a great destination. Located just outside Paradise, Michigan, Tahquamenon Falls State Park has an Upper and Lower set of waterfalls. The lower falls actually has five different falls, and you can rent a rowboat and visit each one of them. This is where Longfellow’s Hiawatha built his canoe.

If you’re planning on circumnavigating Lake Superior this summer, put this park on your list!

Two More Locations to Find Ride Lake Superior

It’s 29 degrees, the wind is howling. It’s supposed to be spring, right? You must not be from Minnesota! Even though there are definite signs of spring (tulips budding, green grass, the Donnie Smith Show), the riding season is off to an iffy start.

If being blown off your motorcycle doesn’t appeal to you, settle down with a book. Ride Lake Superior is now available at Zylstra Harley-Davidson in Elk River and One Sexy Biker Chick in Shakopee. Summer rides are not that far off, regardless of today’s forecast!cover shot

Spring has Sprung! Plan Your Lake Superior Trip Now

Motorcycles came out of Minneapolis garages yesterday with a roar! The rumble, buzz, and whine of motorcycles was in the air throughout the city as the temperature edged up to 60 degrees. Time to start planning your trip around the big lake!

Ride Lake Superior is gaining traction as the temperature rises, too. Zylstra Harley-Davidson in Elk River, Minnesota. recently became the latest retail outlet for the book. Zylstra has been selling its sister book, Ride Minnesota, for a couple of years now. Look for more retail outlets as the season heats up.cropped-greeting.jpg

DUI Keeping You Out of Canada?

border crossingI didn’t know this until after I published Ride Lake Superior, but Canada has very strict laws regarding drivers who have a DUI/DWI on their driving record. They’re not allowed in. Period.

It doesn’t matter if you took your last drink 14 years ago, Canadian immigration officials will track you down and send you home.

That’s bad news for a lot of bikers who’d like to traverse our neighbor to the north. Or even ride around the top side of Lake Superior.

There are immigration lawyers who can help you get across the border. Your chances are better if you’ve had only one DUI. But it’s time-consuming and expensive. You have to REALLY want to go to Canada to make it worth your while.

There’s another way you can take a Lake Superior Circle Tour, and you don’t have to mess with border crossing guards. Get a copy of Ride Lake Superior. Throw a leg over your favorite recliner and enjoy. Helmet not needed.
