Quad cities here. I just bought a 97 ex500 last night, going to pick it up in about 8 hours . Have been checking the forums here for awhile now though.

Re: Iowa?

Riding from Quad City area to Chicago on the 500 is a fun ride but becomes kind of loud if your pushing *upper* interstate speeds

Re: Iowa?

Muscatine here, which is pretty much the QC area. Just picked up a 89 EX500 for practically free, just needs a few parts, and is my first bike so once I get her together and learn to ride it would be cool to maybe meet up with some QC guys.

Marble Rock, IA: about 30 miles south of Mason City.
Just bought a 2006 500r, my first. Can't wait for warmer weather.

Isn't New London right by Mt. Pleasant? If so, I think your about an hour from me in Muscatine.

Re: Iowa?

Sure is, depending on which route you take. Never made any trips to far north, normally always heading south to work (work alot of overtime in the summer). Theres a really nice state park a few miles south of new london I ride through all the time in the summer. It has some nice twisty bits in it. Really nice place to ride once the cars get the sand off the road from the past winter.

Re: Iowa?

I'd meet you, but I sold my beloved 650R. Will be without bike for an unknown amount of time.
