Just got back from a week trip with two of my buddies. We went to the Baltimore Grand Prix and stopped by DC on the way there.

You don't have to go to south Mo. for twistys. They are all over northern Mo. just ride the letter roads, as soon as you cross the boarder they get good. I ride them all the time.

Just got back from a fly fishing trip to NE Iowa. No bike since my buddy doesn't ride, but I highly recommend Yellow River State Park. Nice quiet campground. No cell service unless you get up on the hills. Good roads too!

What a cool looking place. I got my first fly rod this year. Went to the DNR fly fishing camp last year and got the bug. I'll have to check out Yellow River sometime. Hmmm. Sounds like a good road trip for the big KTM!

Was just there this afternoon.

Had to stop at the Handy lift store for parts to the foot pedal of my lift.

Having withdrawals myself, but am sooooo busy over the next couple of weeks that I doubt I'll get any satisfaction.

Oh well...got something planned for next late April. Either brave or fool hardy. Gonna meet up with some riders from another site(Bubba's Bar and Grill.com) in WI and tool around the Northern parts along with some possible UP of MI stuff as well. If I don't make it back...the Missus will have a wake for the ice cube that used to be me.
