    Sounds like a good time to me. Get a time and date posted with a place to meet and greet around M'town or another central IA place. Hell, all skill levels, ages, and rides will show.(WRW you would make it I hope). I'll keep watching.

    I'd be interested, as long as nobody makes me eat loose meat. :)

    I'm going to go to Moonshine for the first time, I think it's a street bikers ride in mostly.

    I usually end up going to the J&P open house, if that counts. Also, now that I have a Ulysses, I've been going to the Buell Homecoming.

    Hi everybody. I live in Des Moines and ride a 08' Vstrom 650 in Flat Black. Been lurking here a long time and posting a lot on stromtrooper.com

    Is anyone planning on going on the Moonshine Lunch Run coming up April 13-15 in Moonshine, IL??

    Details here: http://moonshine-run.com/Moonshine/Event.asp

    A buddy from DSM and I are planning on leaving Friday morning first thing and coming home on Sunday. Anyone want to join us. (Buddy is riding a Sportster.)
