I had my wife pillion and she doesn't like the loose feeling on gravel so we avoid it when she is passenger.
But I do want to do River Rd on the south side of the DSM River heading SE out of Ottumwa. All gravel and follows the curves of the river.
Make sure you stop at Garrison Rock and hike the .5 back to Horse Thief Cave.
