Anyone in Iowa need a riding buddy?

I've seen a few people on here from Iowa, but they are either inactive or don't have their bike anymore. So I'm curious as to if there is anyone in the Des Moines area/Iowa in general that could use a riding buddy/trainee? :b I'm still in the process of learning, and as of the start of riding season, I'll be riding my 2001 like crazy so it'd be great if anyone would be interested in joining me?

A good place to meet some riding buddy's is go to a local bikers meeting place and just get friendly with with some local riders and tag on with them... you will learn a lot riding behind some older bikes most of them have been there and done it including having the odd crash LoL.
