    Not sure if I will attend or not. I'll have just gotten my Spyder by then and it's an 8 hour drive from my house to Ozark. Not sure I'll be ready to take a long trip like that with so few miles under my belt. I'll have to think about it.

    That would be a lot of fun, but we are trailering down and can only attend for a few days. I applaud your intentions!

    Actually, probably leaving from the Bellevue area, so travel options are open. Where along the border are you?

    Hey, I grew up in Tama county many years ago about 7 miles the other side of Traer. Moved away when I went to college in the late sixties.

    About the trip, don't let short ride experience scare you out of coming to Spyderfest. My wife never rode a motorcycle before she got her RS two years ago. She did a few practice rides around the neighborhood before she rode to Gatlinburg, Tennessee two weeks later with a group of friends. Would love to see you here.

    Anyone from the Des Moines area going this year. I know there's a few Spyder Riders in the Area. Looks like the Eastern half of the state will be well represented.

    Bill,
    The wife and I will not be able to make it to spyderfest this year. She fell and broke her ankle. She will not be walking untill late April. I dont think she will be up to the trip.

    You guys have a great time.

    Default Indianapolis via Davenport?

    Not sure if this counts, but I grew up in Davenport and I'll be going to (my first) Spyderfest...but I live in Indy now.
    Still have the roots, though. :-)
