My wife is taking the MSF course that weekend otherwise I would.
Instead, I am going to give her rides to class and then head off and explore the backroads around central Iowa some.

I'll be there! Probably 9am till noon or so. I'll be riding a black on black 2012 KLR.

Bring gloves, boots and a helmet or they won't let you ride the test bikes.

I don't get your emodicon. Are you celebrating having to go to work on a Saturday? The little yellow guy looks like he's dancing and glad. (it looks like you're glad to have gotten out of having to go to a motorcycle even by having to work!)

Cry

I've made it to that the past two years and that is where I got my first taste of the 800 XC
As of right now, it doesn't look like I'll make it this year.

Riding into Iowa

Hello Iowa!

I am looking for ride ideas leaving from Bellevue, NE and heading into Iowa. Looking for day trips up to 3-4 days. I ride a Yamaha Vstar 1100, so no off-roading for me. Unfortunately never had the chance to learn the 'dirty' side of riding.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Check out this site:

https://www.iowabyways.org/

If you want to ride across the state you cant go wrong riding The Great River Road on the east state line - beautiful. I live on the beginning of the Historic Hills byway in the southeast part of the state in a small town called Moravia.

If your coming thru your more than welcome to stop......we're on the tent space thread and we love to put up riders coming thru - save some money and sleep on our couch.

its not just a run-of-the-mill dealer open house. The place is FULL of vintage triumphs (for sale). Various other buildings have other treasures as well. If you have the opportunity I highly recommend you go at least once.

213 miles yesterday around central and SE Iowa with my wife.
Really digging the Sena headsets. Had Chatterbox before but having all the communication without the wires is very nice.
The Chatterbox had a better speaker set and could go louder (I wear earplugs when riding) but the feature set of the Senas more than makes up for it.

Also went dual sport shopping on Saturday. Ostensibly for the wife to try on the CBR250R and Ninja 300. But I am leaning towards a DR650, DR400Z or Husky Terra for dirt duty.
Was considering a spare set of wheels with TKC80s mounted for the Multi but I keep factoring in cost of crashing the Multi versus crashing a dirt oriented single...
