I know he could leave me in the dust with his 1520cc 6 cyl monster, but the VULCAN held her own through the back roads of Iowa. Cannot wait for summer! I took his 72 Honda 350 for a quick ride too.

I love that little 350! I hope to find one at a decent price one of these days.

Glad you were able to get a nice ride in with your Pops!

The Honda 350 in orange and black was my dream bike as a little kid back in the 70's. The closest I got to my dream was a '74 CB 550 in orange and black.

Love your Custom; would love that engine black out in my Classic (I dislike cleaning chrome all the time!!!!).

My son ('82 CM450C) and I are going to do a few rides together this year; can't wait for that. Never was able to do them with my Dad; treasure every chance you get with yours.

Ride safe, my friends.

Cool! Most people have never heard of Miles much less been thru here. 64 is a great road to ride & it's only 4 blocks from my house! Ya gotta love all these 2-lane highways around here. I feel blessed to be w/o city traffic, just LOTS of quiet highways.:)

You guys in IA might want to check out the Vulcan Riders Association if you have not already. They are having their National Rally in McGregor IA this year. http://www.vulcanriders.us/

I do some in town riding but our real rides cover alot of E Iowa county roads and 2 lane hwys , that's one thing about Ia lots of open roads to ride.

You Da Man!! Yeah the middle of the week thing causes some problems but they do it that way so those coming along way can get there. I know there are guys & gals leaving on Saturday morning from Florida and heading up to the Nashville area then making a run Sunday to the Peoria IL area, then finishing the trip up there on Monday. I think right now with several months left to register and plan about 70 bikes plus passengers are registered I would expect there will be over a 100 by the time for the rally comes. I never been to a VRA rally before but should be fun. Will be the only rally I have ever been too where my bike is not the minority make!
