Road trip from NOVA to Milwaukee/Harley Museum


Looking for some tips/best routes from Northern VA to the Harley Museum. I am thinking on riding to Michigan and taking the ferry across the lake. Thoughts and suggestions are welcome. The more research I do the more I come to realize that I need to avoid Chicago but other than the ferry route I have no other ideas.

I took the ferry a couple of years ago, it's fast, kinda cool, but kinda pricey. If you do take the ferry, bring your own tie down straps, theirs are shit. If you have a couple of extra days, ride the West cost of Michigan. M22 and 119 "Tunnel of Trees" are great rides. Cross the Mackinac Bridge, through the UP and down through Wisconsin.

Panic, chaos, disorder, my work is done here.

Thanks for reply! I looked into your suggested ride and looks promising. The ferry round trip, bike, myself and passenger is north of $400 thus this might work quite well, time is not an issue at this point....
