Too hot with full leathers on so I left the house at 7 this morning and rode till just now. no pics and it was pretty boring. Anyone know of good spots to ride a motard, like that has switchbacks?

Yep no kidding. I keep thinking that I should trade the motard dr650 in for a mx bike to ride up at solon ohv park. What do you guys think? Then just get a scooter for around here in iowa city.

Not sure on the next breakfast date... Can we push it back one more week? I'll be just coming back from my Idaho ride...

I went riding on the 26th...Ran up to Dyersville and back with my neighbor. He has a Ducati Monster so we stayed on the hard surface roads. It was a nice Friday afternoon ride... We rolled past someone on a newer red KLR on Highway 30 over by the Cedar River...

Hey all, I just joined a few weeks ago and finally got around to posting a picture of my bike.

Please ignore the flower that looks like its attached to the rear fender. It's a demonstration of my poor photograhpy skills.

looks like I still suck at attaching pics.

Better way to attach pics.... look at the buttons directly above the reply screen window where you type them word thingys. fifth button from the right is the "insert image" button. select the "direct link" option from your photobucket pic in your album. after copying that then push the insert image button above the replky window. Paste the the copied "direct link" into the window that pops up and viola!
