WL, good suggestions also. I had forgotten about that area. Strawberry Point to Elkader and on to Prairie du Chien is a great ride. Stop at Gunder and have a Gunder Burger, one pound!

I had D&D pipes on a Vulcan 1500, loud as fuck. A couple friends who owned Harley's thought they sounded great! Rode that a few times to Denver, I was happy to get there and shut it off.

I enjoy my Electra Glide, and have owned German and Japanese bikes as well. I would not mind having a Night Hawk in the current stable as well. They seem like great bikes. Ride what you like.
