Heading east to Decorah cruising is easy at a brisk 50 miles per but its time for some more warmth at the Kwik Trip. Where is that sweater? The roads in northeast Iowa make for some great riding and scenery, as we wind our way over to the touristy McGregor and then south to Guttenberg.
Its late morning and I make the obligatory stop a Breitbachs in Balltown for lunch. This was the oldest restraint in Iowa until it burned down a few years back, then it burned down again? There is no way to retain the real charm it had, but the food is still good.
The same can be said about the roads in this area. On the other hand the scout, clone that it is, is just like ridding a vintage Honda passport. At the most inopportune time the scout starts to sputter, running out of gas. I am on a four lane road with lots of traffic and no shoulder, just a tall curb up to a sidewalk. I manage to get stopped without getting run over and lift the bike onto the sidewalk.
I whip out my extra quart of gas and finish the trip to the fairgrounds. If you appreciate old motorcycles this is the place to be on Labor Day weekend. An entire fairgrounds full of antique and vintage only parts for sale, including lots of rare scooter stuff.
