spring has sprung in Iowa

Alright fellas i put about 200 miles on this weekend and went nowhere, but covered the old home range hard.

Yep, the smell of great riding weather is definately in the air........I put about 100 miles on mine yesterday around the house. The temps were about 74 and sunny.

2008 DL650 VStrom Yellow and Black
Previous ride was a 2007 KLR Black/Silver, I miss it..
Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.

I'm thinking about heading out to the farm on Sunday. Its suppose to hit 60. Let me know if you're interested in going along. We could probably hit 60-70%gravel roads. I would like to go through Red Rock. There is a gravel road running north of the river between Priarie City and Hwy 92, comes out north of the mile long bridge. Cross the river south of the dam. Gravel roads from there to the farm. Heading to Colfax this afternoon, got some business there.

Just went to whotv.com. They're now calling for 46 on Sunday. Maybe next week will be better. I'm sure it would be very muddy anyway.

I'm heading to the farm. You're welcome to come along. What time do you have to be back for work? We can meet in PC, maybe at Casey's.
