    They ride on the lagoons that are on the south side of the river kind of on the west side of Ottumwa.
    just south of where 34 and 63 meet.

    Thanks! Yeah, I just picked it up in early November - a leftover '12 that I just couldn't pass up. Actually got a few good rides in before the snow hit.

    Sold my XL. Thank god. Too much work and not enough time.

    I did ride to work yesterday. Love the heated grips on the Multi more and more each day.
    Wife said I was nuts.

    I’m impressed, I don’t see many other bikes out there when I’m riding to work.

    Does anybody know when the bike night in Coralville starts up again? I haven't gone for a year or two but would like to see what the other bikers around here are up to.

    Give that man a cigar! Yep, Kent Park. And, I thought I noticed a bit of extra drool on the seat.

    Hey, what happens in the show room, stays in the show room, except in this case it stays on the seat.

    Looks like I'll be washing the bike sooner rather than later.

    Kent park was where I taught my wife to ride. Lots of practice going around curves and stopping on hills. Eventually the ranger stopped us and kicked us out because she didn't have her license yet. :shog

    Yeah, it's a nice little place to ride at a leisurely pace. Decent roads around there as well, for Iowa.

    There's a Facebook group but it's a private group. Try calling Scott at S&S Customs in North Liberty. He usually knows what's going on with it.
