December Ride in Iowa PLUS last minute shopping ideas!!

In our last blog, I was whining about the early end to our riding season, however, as luck would have it, we have had a mid-December warm up!


Saturday, I took the opportunity to ride down to one of our local dealers.  They were hosting an open house and I always like to stop in and see what’s new.

While I always enjoy looking at the new bikes, a couple of older bikes really caught my eye.  The first one was a 1990 Triumph Sprint.  I’m not really a sport bike fan, but the gorgeous lines of this bike were amazing.


Just before I left, I went into one more room and I found this:


It’s a 1990 BMW K1 with just a little over 45,000 miles.  This is a relatively rare bike that riders either really love, or really hate.  It is so unique and futuristic looking that it is hard to believe it was built almost 20 years ago.

While it was fun to look and dream, I still love my GS the best.  It’s the best bike I can imagine for the our favorite type of riding.  It was so great to get out and have that unexpected ride, and to support a local business.

Speaking of support for a business….nice segue, huh?…we also wanted to remind everyone that there is still time to stock up on Driftless Gear and support your favorite Free Route website.  Please visit our store for some last minute gifts.  The USPS tells us that the 20th is the last day to ship in time for Christmas.
