Default Grand River

Between Howell and Brighton, possibly the worst ride ever?

anyone know any roads that are worse?

Coming off of the discussion on 696 I was thinking the same thing.

dont get down to 696, I just have to drive that road everyday and I'm thoroughly hating the Livingston County Road Commission for not doing something about it

Grand River between Howell and Brighton is possibly the least repaired road I've travelled on lately. It's pretty bad with my jeep, I wont even dare take my motorcycle down it in the summer. Mainly it's between Latson and Brighton. Not so much the city of Howell.

try fenton road from m-59 to white lake road, it is all patches, espescially between germany and Center.

try Hartland Road from White lake to State Road School.



I don't really pay much attention anymore, I am just accustommed to michigan roads blowing ass, and I grew up on dirt roads so I am pretty used to it and can tolerate it.

One theme I am noticing as I am thinking of shitty roads is Livingston County.

Seems like the one constant. I've rode on old tank trails in Grayling better than Michigan roads.

Switch topics, anyone know any good roads for motorcycle riding? I've always loved M-36 and M-32 through Hell. They just paved the road through Hell last year and it made the ride a LOT better

You're lucky they haven't turned it back to gravel yet.
