Friday morning Dan says to me...Let's rent an Electra Glide for the weekend. We have those free rentals. Let's see if those bad boys are all that everyone says they are cracked up to be. By Noon on Friday we had a pretty 2009 HD Electra Glide sitting in our driveway.
Dan had to go to work so there was no riding on Friday. Saturday night we rode the EG around in the rain. It was cold so we took it home and got the cage to drive up to watch fireworks. Sunday we were up early and on the road with our pretty rental. I was digging what I will call the Princess seat and I was digging the passenger boards even more. I've used pegs for the past 5 yrs so I felt like I was in heaven.
We rode to the Largest Lake in Iowa, Lake Red Rock. We went to the Cordova Park Observation Tower. Holy Crap it's a haul to the top but I made it! The Tower is made out of the base of an old water tower. Usually you have to pay a quarter to go to the top but we lucked out and the gate was open and free to the public that day. Like a 50 cents would have broke us but sometimes it's nice to get something free.
We took some great pictures while we were at the top of the tower. Corn, Corn, Corn, Corn, what's that??? A HUGE LAKE!!!!
Dan was taking the beautiful view in while I was taking a picture of two baggers and a sporty.(oh and a guy in an orange t-shirt)
We got back on the road and stopped in Pella where they have this huge Tulip Festival every spring. People come from all over the world to attend this festival.
On the way back to Johnston we stopped in Pleasant Hill to get gas and there was this cool Hot Rod in the lot. I'm guessing they had been at the Good Guys Car Show that was happening that weekend.
We had a great weekend! Glad we rented the Electra Glide and tested it out. Dan missed his Street Glide and so did I. I love the Zippy Pickle...she's a sweet ride and she's even sweeter now because momma got some passenger boards! FINALLY!
Happy Riding! IHG
