In as 2016 marks the "Finale" for Li'l Sturgis, We're enlisting the services of one of Michigan's nationally acclaimed culinary professionals and 2014 World Chef Challenge Champion, (and "Peddler's Son-in-Law), Chef Steven Grostick to prepare our final meal. We're thinking Beef Brisket and Smoked Chickens with all the fixins'.

This year we will not be having the usual poker run; however, we will be offering two group motorcycle rides. Each ride will be approximately 4-1/2 hours in the saddle with a lunch stop about half way through the ride.


The routes have been selected to show off some good motorcycle roads in Michigan.

1. The "Lake Michigan Run" with a lunch stop at "Back in the Fifities" Drive-In in South Haven, MI. --- https://goo.gl/maps/2nNEjkNkpn32

2. The "Irish Hills/Hell Michigan Run" with a lunch stop at Bridgewater Bank Tavern in Bridgewater, MI --- https://goo.gl/maps/Wu4PAQ157SR2

Did I mention that your registration to "Li'l Sturgis" gets you the choice of of two great motorcycle tours with a free lunch?


1) The "Lake Michigan Ride" will leave the Holiday Inn Express Howe-Sturgis and head Northwest through the twisties in some of Michigan’s most scenic farm country. The group will stop for lunch in South Haven, Michigan at the “Back to the Fifties” drive-in. This luncheon is sponsored by Lakeside Motorsports of Mecosta, Michigan. From there you’ll head south down the coast of Lake Michigan and return to the hotel ---- http://tinyurl.com/j3mbo59


2) The "Irish Hills to Hell and Back Ride" heads East on US-12 through the Historic Irish Hills and past the famed Michigan International Speedway. A lunch stop is scheduled at a favorite hang-out of the Wolverine State Victory Riders in Bridgewater, Michigan at the Bridgewater Bank Tavern. This luncheon is sponsored by Dick Scott’s Freedom Powersports of Livonia, Michigan. After lunch the ride continues north to Hell, Michigan then returning to the hotel ---- http://tinyurl.com/zhknymo
