New to Sportbike World

Hey everyone! I'm interested in learning how to ride a motorcycle. I don't have any experience besides ATV's (I know, not the same thing). I'm happy to hear any tips as well as good places to ride in Michigan

Fellow Michigander

I also ride in Michigan and would like to know of good places to ride.

Last summer i took my bike from grand rapids to munising in the U.P. Going across the bridge was cool but other than that it was pretty straight riding even though i took back roads the whole way.

A good place i know to ride is around the Gun Lake and Yankee Springs area mostly because its not to far from where i live.

Take Motorcycle Safety Foundation course for starting riders. HIGHLY recommended, plus there's usually an insurance cost reduction for having been certified.

Michigan: Two racetracks that have good traiing avilable. Grattan and Gingerman. Check out SportbikeTrackTime.
