Great midwestern rally!  If you’re on the fence about a rally, this is the one for you.   Lovely area ( unlike most of the mid west) very friendly lots todo.

Quite a few bring thier grandparents to see the bikes.  One of the best rallies I've been to.

Interesting, I didn't think many Guzzi riders still had living grandparents! :laugh:

They've moved Elkader to Northwest Iowa, so it's away from the river.

Ha! Yeah I google-mapped it, then checked the spelling, then confirmed with the description of the highways, then zoomed-out to re-confirm that I was, indeed, looking at northEAST Iowa, then concluded that it was a misprint.

Looks fun. Actually closer to me (in La Crosse) than the Wisconsin rally. I'll try to attend if/when I get my ambassador electrical issues sorted. Are all makes acceptable? Or will I be shunned for riding in on a Ducati?

Oh, yeah.. like all Guzzi rallies, you'd definitely be shunned for riding in on a Ducati.  :evil:  :smiley: Or a BMW. Or a Harley. Or a Morini, or...

I might make a day trip to see the bikes, if I can find my tent, maybe stay for the whole rally. Pretty sure I am off that weekend.

I should be rolling in about 12-1 o’clock Friday afternoon. Looking forward to the rally. First trip on a Moto Guzzi , I hope it will be as dependable as my  bmw airheads are. I am sure it will be or I wouldn’t take it out lol. I am a lot more braver since break downs are not the end of the world if you carry a cell phone.    :grin:
