Shoot me over your cell phone if you want to ride or just talk at bikrpitts@mchsi.com. I'm 51 !

Hope to see you at Bussy.
Dammit,
I was there today too.
I didn't check the site last night and headed out early this morning.
I ripped around for half the day and headed home.
Thanks for the invite. Next time.

Free tires, Pirelli MT60's, came off a 2010 Kawi Versys. 50% rear tire, 70% tread front. Pick them up this week or I'm throwing them away. PM me for location/availability.

I think I'll be trying out some scorpion trails next.

Why anyone would take a moto ride to Iowa falls is something I will never understand.

Next time you get a flat in my town, give me a buzz. I have everything to change you out.

It wasn't so much the destination, but it was the turning-around point. You've got to take what you can get in the Great Corn Desert, I guess. The route was from M-town, up through Alden and back (mostly) along the Iowa River. We were actually between Gifford and Union (so most of the way home) when the back end got loose, so I just pulled in to a roadside park and my buddy rode home and got his trailer, since the sticky rope I tried didn't hold air.

I know the route and the park where you most likely attempted to fix your tire.

They are fun roads around there. We need more level B roads in Hardin county.
