My wife and I just returned from two weeks in the western U.P. We have gone there every year for the past 15+ years. We NEVER went in June, black flies!!
Over the years we've progressively moved our vacation there later in the year. We think the best time is mid-September through mid-October. Love the colors and beginning in early October, light, overnight snow is not out of the question. Trails are being developed but I ridden the roads around Bergland and Lake Gogebic for those 15 years or so. Of note to tourers there are only two main, east-west roads on the U.P., M-28 and US-2. Both have wide shoulders but you may have share them with tandem log hauling trucks.
Side note, September 6 is considered a holiday in the U.P. 9/6, or 906 is the area code for the entire Upper Peninsula.
