I'm about 72 miles straight south of you. You ever been to the OHV park in waterloo? Really nice area. Check out this link:

Not sure who is in charge of putting the video up - but that's me on my KTM. I guess they just found it on youtube and used it. There's a lot more than the one easy MX track that's shown in that video. It's a great way to spend a day riding.

Hey farmer. That's what's nice about dual sports and living in Iowa Falls.

We have 50 miles to Waterloo. 50 miles to Fort Dodge. 50 miles to Marshalltown. And a little further to Tama.

Real men ride down in Oskaloosa!! Now that's a blast!

Bluff Creek is less than 50 miles from me. Thats gotta be my favorite one - though waterloo is a close second.

Driving all over this dumb state as I do for work, I see the pioneer cemetery signs a lot. Anybody ever do a tour of these as an excuse to hit gravel roads?

There's a thought. Kinda like the Wisconsin Rustic Road thing? I wonder if there's a handy registry.

Hmm I have been to the Mitchell ave. sand pits about a decade ago on my atv. Never knew they changed it up. I'll have to go check it out. Most of the time I ride in the pasture(none of our toys were stickered) or the endless gravel roads from farm to farm (just not our farm).

Rode today. Got to say today was the first day this winter it wasn't too much fun. Snow is getting too deep and dense. It was WFO in second and third gear, just trying to keep forward momentum.

Pretty sure Eems scared everyone off the forum with that pic...

Finally found a set of motocross boots that fit my gigantic calves...ended up with a set of Fox Comp 5s in a size larger than I normally wear. I spent last Tuesday and Wednesday home sick watching Supercross and wearing my new boots to help break them in.

March can't come soon enough. Once bonuses arrive, I can finally pick up the Husky and go play in the dirt.

you really should! with the right (warm) gear, its a great thing! being cold doesnt usually happen, infact most of the time im riding aggressively enough that im actually sweating instead. its almost like a cross between motocross and jet skiing.

i take off again tuesday for a week again. that will make it 3 weeks of snowmobiling in a month and a half... id say my year is off to a good start!
