    Just south of dsm here, and looking at a wr250 or a dzr400, but most of what I have been seeing are the 400e with title. Has anyone actually transferred and kept the title in Iowa, or would I be shooting myself in the foot

    You have to buy the DRZ street legal version to be legal in IA. The dirt only cannot be plated legally. The recent streel legal Yamaha 250F can be titled too. Unfortunately it is nothing like the dirt only WR250F.

    I don't but I'd love to help you track him down. I hate dead-beats so I'll send you my phone number and we can talk about it.

    Just started playing this adventure game. Brought the bike home from the dealership a few days ago in hail and ice... <---- Trying to jump start my street cred ;) 08 GSA, Iowa City. Just moved back to Ia this year. Back to school with nothing but free time. If anyone's looking for a ride-along let me know, the bikes stay in the front of the garage!

    Not in MT, for now.
    I had mine shoved in the corner of the barn but then took it out for the parade for the Congressional Medal of Honor Winner a couple weeks ago in CR, now it's back in the middle again waiting for some work that I'd rather avoid (not the job but the cold temps, man I miss my old garage):vardy

    Ahhhh I hope you had them out today. Gorgeous. I think one should consider putting an overhead door in the "back" of their garage.... That way it's a win win:clap

    I know I'm not from Iowa (still too close for comfort) but thought I'd say hello, most of the Iowa people are closer to me than the IL folks, I'm obviously new to the forum, and new to my BMW, but been riding since four years old :D. Just bought my '08 GS at Gina's this fall, looking forward to a full season of riding next year, and hope to get the wife on a GS before the snow melts this year! anyway... greetings to all, and hoping to find some like minded riders locally to maybe share a few miles with!

    I rode to work on Friday, too bad I had to be in lab for the nicest part of it. I think I was performing GF-related errands on Saturday, can't even remember what the weather was like...
