    Awesome. So sorry to miss this. I think I mentioned that The Orca went to the shop to get ready for the Summer Classic.

    I'll have to look into that area next time I'm back there. Looks like it's about two hours west of my brother's place.
    There is talk of RAGBRAI 2020. I might have my 990 ready by then. :imaposer

    Great pics @Orangecicle ! We've passed through the Loess Hills region several times in the past but always on the way to another destination. We discovered several scenic routes a couple of trips ago and started to detour to ride those paved roads. We've made several stops in Pisgah to eat at the "Filler Up & Keep On Truckin' Cafe". One would assume there would be some dual-sport worthy roads there but we never took the time. Thanks for sharing. The area is definitely worthy of a stand alone trip.
