Off-roading in Michigan is one of the state's great pastimes. Michigan's natural beauty often makes it particularly amenable to such activities, offering trails, sand, hills, rocky terrain, and a host of other topographical features. Heading off road starts with the right gear, however, and thankfully, Michigan's got that covered too. So, check out these seven great Michigan motorsport retailers to get yourself ready for a big day of outdoor fun!
A comparatively new addition to the Kalamazoo landscape, Zeigler Motorsports offers a panoply of off-road options.

The sheer variety of options is one thing, but when you're overwhelmed and need a break to consider just which to go with, the attached Tap House restaurant will provide just the break.

Where do you go if you're just looking to augment what you've already got in off-roading? A good place to start is Fraser, home of Mumbly's Off Road.
