My name real name is Joe, I live in Newton, Iowa, and yes thatís where the Iowa Speedway is. If any of you come to visit the track be sure drop me a line to let me know you'll be in town.
I started riding when I was 4 on a Honda MR50, which was almost 40 years ago now. Since then I have owned/ridden over 50 bikes and quads. I have been racing motocross and cross country on both bikes and quads for over 20 years.
I have had a handful of street legal bike in my life. One of them was a '96 KLR. I didnít ride it much because at that time I was racing 30 to 40 times a year. I have slowed down to about 8 races a year and have a lot more time to ride for the enjoyment.
Last week I picked up a used '08 with 600 miles on it. Apparently it was not the bike for him. I'm very happy with it and put over 500 miles on it in the first few days I had it. I did its first oil change and moved the rear turn signals over the weekend. I can't decide what the next mod/addition will be; I guess I'll know when it hits me!
I'm still looking for better riding gear and bags so I'll be ready for some longer hauls and adverse weather.
Thanks to Kw08klr for introducing me to this site and Thanks to everyone here for the hospitality, ideas and opinions!
