Fall Ride to MO

It's another beautiful day here in SE Iowa and I'm headed out for a short trip down to visit a friend in Jefferson City, MO, about 3 hours or so. Wife can't come on this trip. I'll be taking the back roads hoping to find some solitude and some twisties and blissful riding. I'll come back tomorrow before dark. Should be good both ways. Man I am psyched. Know what I mean?

Re: Fall Ride to MO

Great ride down on Sunday and back today. Temp in 70's, sunny, beautiful weather. Took as many back roads that looked crooked on the map as I could find. Did not see one (live) deer. But occasionally came across large read smears in the road where someone hit one. A little disconcerting. But I had a blast. Nice to get one more half way decent ride in before the inevitable winter s..t hits the fan.

Re: Fall Ride to MO

Glad you had a good ride down to MO.. There are lot's of great twisty roads once you get south of Jeff City.. Hope you got a chance to ride some of them.
Took my daughter for a ride yesterday. 70 degrees (got to love global warming) the high Sat is supposed to be 45. The leaves are prime.

The deer are so bad here they have changed the deer season almost every year. Longer time frame and more deer taken. There is a State Park by my home. They now have a short season. If you want to take a buck, you have to take 2 does first.. Too many woods rats..
