Wow! 62 degrees in Iowa this afternoon. I took the Silver Bullet for a 60 mile ride today. Drove to some little towns with names like West Chester, Keota,Wellman, and Kalona (Amish country). As I drove down the highway among the corn and bean fields still somewhat covered with snow I was amazed how fresh the air smelled and it made me appreciate mother nature at her best. As I arrived back in Washington tucked in behind my Givi screen with my winter coat and gloves rocking to some oldies but goldies I thought Heh, it really doesn't get any better than that and it isn't even spring yet.
