    I dunno, I just looked and it looks like it'll Edith pass over tonight or generally go north. I guess if it's raining in the am I'll drive over instead of ride.

    Gah Joe, why do you have to do it Thurs? If you did it Friday I could make it as I have the day off. I've already taken the first part of the next week off for our anniversary trip to the twin cities or I'd try to take another day off for Thurs. Let me know if your plans change & you decide to go Friday instead.

    good breakfast. That scooter was sweet. I am on the prowl for one as I write this. I will try to not take it off any sweet jumps though.

    Glad everyone that could make it enjoyed it. Glad Chris suggested to start taking it to mom/pop places, their service, food & prices are usually all better than Perkins.

    I never really saw the appeal of a moped, but after just riding this thing around the yard, I gotta say it's a hoot. I was pretty surprised that this thing will get up to 35 or so on flat ground w/ my fatt azz on it. Glad Chris talked me into it. And yes, I think we should get a little 'moped army' to take the area by storm. As I think Brian said, funny to be wearing a $600 coat on a $300 ride. Pretty hard to take your self too seriously on one of these things. I love it..:rofl

    Hope everyone that was heading to the J&P open house had a good time, weather was definitely co-operating today.

    Next breakfast in 2-3 weeks? How does 7/18 sound? Same bat time, same bat place?

    The level B just east of Baldwin that heads North was not passable the last time I tried going up it a spring opened up at the top of the first hill.

    Thanks for the note Criag.
    Josh, If you'd come over to work where I do (hint) you would have Thursday AND Friday off! The plan won't change ... already got plans for Friday.
    Just drove North up C Avenue and they were scrapping a Harley up out of the ditch on the corner just before County Home Road. A lot of cop cars and investigation units, so I'm guessing the guy didn't come out of that one too good. Hope the rider was okay.

    Too hot with full leathers on so I left the house at 7 this morning and rode till just now. no pics and it was pretty boring. Anyone know of good spots to ride a motard, like that has switchbacks?

    Yep no kidding. I keep thinking that I should trade the motard dr650 in for a mx bike to ride up at solon ohv park. What do you guys think? Then just get a scooter for around here in iowa city.

    Not sure on the next breakfast date... Can we push it back one more week? I'll be just coming back from my Idaho ride...

    I went riding on the 26th...Ran up to Dyersville and back with my neighbor. He has a Ducati Monster so we stayed on the hard surface roads. It was a nice Friday afternoon ride... We rolled past someone on a newer red KLR on Highway 30 over by the Cedar River...

    Hey all, I just joined a few weeks ago and finally got around to posting a picture of my bike.

    Please ignore the flower that looks like its attached to the rear fender. It's a demonstration of my poor photograhpy skills. :lol3

    looks like I still suck at attaching pics.
