Iowa is tHe Suck.
Like worster then Illonoice????
Nothing is quite that bad.
I think a couple of us from CR are going. We went last year. Its was a fun ride. However, I need 2whlrcr to clear a couple things up (if he can get off his Iowa rant). Do we need a plate and is there some type of Illinois offroad permit required?
Old people do that sort of thing.
Yes you need a plate and lights. Nobody is checking what the plate is registered too and doubtful if anyone is checking to see if your lights work. Just don't show up with a Maglight duct taped to your front fender.
The IL offroad sticker has not been passed yet...I'm riding my bicycle, so I don't need one anyway.
Hey, new strom rider in SE Iowa here. Past harescrambler but spending more time on the tarmac now. Looking for fall riding opportunities in southern Iowa. Any trips/outings planned?

CAmp in the wild, eat on the run and ride allllllll day long
Picture from last October.
You can say that again.
Seen an ADV Rider on a blue KLR 650 in Des Moines today going down Douglas at 3:45pm. who are you?
so, what are all you guys doing now that casey's and kwik star (and I assume QT) aren't carrying 89 octane gas anymore? having their choices be 87 ethanol or 87 non-ethanol pretty much rules out buying gas from their smaller locations completely since my Civic and my Sportster need 89+ and the Buell is supposed to get 91+. Maybe this isn't an issue with the more-dirt oriented bikes, but now I basically can't ride anywhere more than half a tank of gas away from home, unless I want to only ride the major highways.
BP will always have ultimate
I'm not doing anything until I get my bike running again.

Always.. With a dash of seafoam there's nothing like it
The Chuck Norris of gasoline...when you can find it without ethanol.
Or if you can find a BP. I know for a fact that not all BPs have ultimate. The one in Mount Vernon sure doesn't. I had the same assumption about them all having it, and went to fill up the Buell before a ride with my dad, and ended up having the choice of 87/89 just like the casey's across the highway. I can only assume that they and other 2-pump BPs will only carry 87/87 in the future as well.
I think that corner stop used to have ultimate, but that screwball that took over the place got rid of it. If I remember right he wanted to add diesel, but that was a while ago and I no longer work in that field to know if he followed through. And my memory appears to be shot.
Heading to Moab yet this fall? Post up a link to the RR. Me and acouple of buddies are doing Colorado/Utah in the fall of 2015. It's a ways out - but it's never too early to start planning.
I did Eastern Iowa to Moab and back this summer. Feel free to ask any questions.
