Aguirre, the Wrath of God was made in 1972 by Warner Herzog staring Klaus Kinski. I watched tonight and my mind is blown. I have been seeking best movies of all time

National Motorcycle Museum, Anamosa Iowa

My biggest regret is that this is the first time I went there

I like the 1900 to 1920 bikes the best, like overbuilt bicycles with engines.  Hill-climbers above middle.  Track bikes on the wooden track.  The top bike was amazing in person (but I like the look of a well ridden bike best, on the top bike the saddle is old but the rest looks new) and in fact was estimated to sell for the most of all the bikes with a top of 250k.  And it's a replica

I visited there yesterday.  I was overwhelmed.  Incredible. 100-something amazing bikes in a relatively small space plus walls and cabinets of memorabilia, toys and awards and a display of 50 vintage engines... 600 miles from MPLS in two consecutive 8 hour days at 65 on the DR650 dual sport. Multiple detours.  Great river road most of the way.  They close forever after Labor Day.  Auctions take over next week. I wish I had gone sooner, to be returning this time.  I love motorcycles turns out.

Yamaha WR250F!  Suzuki DR650 Go!

Jared and I rode Boulder Junction WI trails, Cannonshot GPS tracks, yesterday and the day before.  Northern Highlands NAHL specifically. 200 miles mostly off road trail riding.  Jared rode great never dropping his bike in two days and so beating my record, also learned to use tracks on his GPS unit. My little WR makes soft trails and gravel roads great fun but top speed suffers on highway.  I think the valves need a touch, served me pretty well this week
