    Excited to say we have a first ever USA Africa Twin Rally for 2017 May 25th-29th, Winterset Iowa USA! Will be at City Park in Madison County (as in The Bridges of Madison County movie ) Winterset Iowa, home of the Duke....the great John Wayne. Lots of great touring of Iowa gravel and B-roads to be had. There is a John Wayne festival with lots going on that weekend. Beautiful campground with showers and only a few blocks from downtown. I have a couple great rides roughed out and will update this more later. I'm thinking Thursday start with a Sunday or Monday departure. Depending on interest and number of riders there's a motocross and flat track nearby we can play on but we'd all have to rally together $500 for that ahead of time, I believe it would cover the whole weekend. If we end on Sunday that gives some of you more time to relax getting home assuming you're off Monday. I'll work on photos over the next few weeks. Currently we have some generous sponsorship/prizes from RuggedRoads, Klim, Clearwater Lights and Alpina Tubeless Wheels of Italy. Please visit the Facebook event page for more details as they become available. If you feel you may be coming please mark yourself as "Interested" or "Going" for update posts. Camping will be $15/night x nights you will be there. Just pay me when you arrive. Still hashing out food, working on a fend for yourselves/catering combo. Fyi, this is not a AT specific event, all makes welcome. Hope to see you there!! Tobin

    This is a cool idea and I would like to join but no sure if schedule will work out for me to make the trip. Also it wouldn't be the first AT rally as there was a few gatherings of Africa Twins for owners here in the USa the had the original RD models. Would be good to include them as well.

    I'd be all over this except I'll be in Wyoming doing this rally thing.

    Maybe I could send you some goodies to give away.:1drink
