I agree by the way that there are a lot of disprestful idiots on sleds that dont care about others, and will burn out with there studded tracks. I have only been to the UP a few times in the summer, but when I was there I didnt see every hotel booked solid full with bikers, as I do almost every single weekend in the winter with snowmobilers. Im not trying to argue as I think snowmobilers can be some D bags and arent respectful of thers and the destruction of property. For bikers and snowmobilers both are good for michigan economy.
1. Biking "destinations" are not as plentiful as areas to snowmobile. You'd have to look in the right spots.
2. I lived in the UP, I did not see hotels completely filled with snowmobiles during the time that I lived up there.
3. Snowmobilers probably spend more as a group, but individually the costs are about the same.
