I don't really know how to put this but, does it suck to be back in Iowa after riding in N.C., Tn. Ky. and Mo.?
There sure isn't anything wrong with how you did your 50th. If fact I envy that. I would like to try it someday myself.

As far as being sucky here, The states you mention have great riding but for me Iowa is home. Born and raised here. As I go on these trips I really really enjoy all the scenery and twisty roads but I get homesick. This is where my wife , family and friends are. It's also nice to get home to my own bed and toilet.

Besides, now that I have a Wee Strom all those great destinations just got closer.
