Not really. In the begining of the club we were trying to come up with catchy names. My grumpy neighbor coined us and it stuck.

Believe me, it's not. It's a corn field.
My KTM does not like to start when it's below 30. I may have to wait til spring to check that bridge out.

I do have an official county map that does list it as an actual road, so we shouldn't be shot if we ride on it.

Lemme see if I can find Orange ln.

According to my "official" Iowa map source, it is in fact a road.

It just dead ends at a cornfield!

Aluminum.
And the thing is the welds are ugly as hell. It's like they had a blind apprentice that day. But after seeing some other Maico Coffin Tanks they all look bad.
I do love the Radial Cylinder

I know someone out there is riding today, but for the rest of us depressed by the cold, here's a trail ride filmed at 2whlrcr's Area 51 earlier this year.

I rode today in Des Moines. It was 0F at race start. The sun was shining, so it wasn't that bad.
