I'm in the Roland-Story area. Got a new Orange 2012 Wee-Strom in Feb, thinking this march would be great weather like last March. No such luck! Hoping April will be better.

You're probably thinking Baxter Iowa East of DSM around I-80 xit 159. Baxter Cycle is in Marne Iowa. I-80 exit 51, go south a few miles. Can't miss it, just after you come in to town. (I say town loosely, it's more of a village, or a berg)

Got out for a little ride this Saturday before the weather took a turn for the worst.


Cedar Creek looks perfect for a canoe trip but was a little too high to hit the water crossings just yet.


Really pleased to have the bike out the first weekend of Spring, even if it was short lived.

The back end of your bike fell off again! What happened? Is it protesting from being started in the bitter cold?

new tires

New tires are on the list probably Heidinau's but maybe TKC 80's. Crash bars are going on before tires though

Spring is here

Got out today for some good exploring.
Lots of mud out there.


Found this old cemetery in the woods.
I didn't ride in the cemetery, just pushed my bike up near for perspective .




Some ATV trails


I can't tell you yet where this water crossing is untill I Tenere it when it drys up some mud.


This is going to be fun!!!


It still looks like this.




I'm ready for more.
Steve

Didn't go play in the mud but did a few gravel roads for my birthday yesterday. Stopped by Maffitt Reservoir and snapped a few pics...
