    I'm disappointed, I expected to see the Super Tenere sliding through the corners.

    I spent a hour or so riding in the timber today. Hopping logs is easy with screws in your tires.:D

    Anyone near the IA/MO border that would like to help with a dog delivery relay? It's happening this weekend. We need someone to fill a gap between the border and Des Moines.

    What a great way to build your karma in the New Year!

    I had to get my bike from my inlaws garage to my fathers shop to do some work on it over this winter. It was warm enough that I decided to ride it over instead of trailer it. It was only a 3 mile ride but it felt good to be back on 2 wheels!!!

    Where do they do this? Every weekend?
    I am new to Iowa and want to try this. I will buy some studded rubber and rip it up as often as possible.
    Where please?
    Do they also have races?
    Thanks

    This was on the Ottumwa lagoons [ Parks]
    Bikes ride there all the time when the ice is good.
    No races there.
    There is a groop of ice riders around here that are on the Ice every weekend.
    Have you ask around at the cycle shops up there?

    Thanks,
    I have some tires on order. I will be down there on the 19th or 20th.
    I did ask at a struthers here in des moines and they really had no info.
    I don't mind driving down there.

    I looked on google maps and it looks like its east of ottumwa and next to blakeburg?

    I got a serious jones on for getting slideways! Braaap!
