Thanks Doug, I won't be able to make the rally, but gonna try to make the T.W.A.T. on the 4th of July weekend. I can think of no better place than Taylor's. Glad to meet every one of you guys.

I'm in for the rally in Middle Amama. That was a blast today! There really needs to be more curvy roads in this state since I ain't got much for top end...lol

I am just 6' 4".

I will get some stuff set up for meeting places and other odds and ends the closer the TWT ride gets.

We are pretty much just going to wing it. Carry everything with us to camp and see what happens. No schedule no plans just ride!

Will have to meet up again sometime.

Ok girls, I got the info for the Tama dual sport ride. Here is what my buddy Chad just told me:

Meet at Tama OHV park [just north of Iowa River on HWY 63 ] July 23rd sign up at nine leave at 10 100ish miles[total] eat and fuel in Belle Plaine[1/2way point] at 1 ish back in Tama 4:30ish [$10.00]

Now, who's going? I am 90% that I will make it. Since this is a Tama OHV deal, I thought it might be neat to do an ADV group hug before the ride...

The group hug part scares me but thanks for the invite on FB. I might go. It just all depends on if the boss has the weekend off or not. If she does I will most likely be painting the house that day.

So, I'm driving down I35 today when some speed demon passes me on his blue KLR with a Givi top box on it, the guy had to be going 75-80 mph, I didn't think those things went that fast. (he did have a tail wind however) The bastige didn't even slow down to wave. I hope you didn't get too wet.



As for the Tama ride, it's penciled in, depends on work.

Cedar Rapids swap meet

Thought I'd pass this along. There's a motorcycle swap meet at the Flamingo Restaurant this Sunday on Ellis Blvd in Cedar Rapids 8am to 6pm. The guy was advertising it at the Anamosa Motorcycle Museum Event last weekend. He was showing a couple real nice Ossas. I don't know any of the particulars, just his number 319-533-3872. Supposedly there will be a couple vendors and it includes dirtbikes, etc. I know one ADV lurker who will be trying to sell his 70's 360 Husky.
