Day 10: Cedar Rapids, IA to Clayton, IA

Day 10
August 14, 2010
Cedar Rapids, IA to Clayton, IA: 96 Miles

Well, perhaps too good a time: got off to a super slow start. It was a good thing I was only going to Clayton. On my way up 151, I ran across the National Motorcycle Museum.

I could have stayed there all day, but only got to spend an hour there since Dave was expecting me at his cabin on the Mississippi for dinner. Here are a few shots of the museum:

1908 Indian Racer

Mach-Ness: Built on a helicopter jet engine

57 Chevy theme bike by Arlen Ness

1936 Norton Manx Racer

A replica of Dennis Hopper’s ride in Easy Rider

The original Captain America from Easy Rider (It was fully restored after the crash in the movie.)

Turned out to be a beautiful day as this shot of the river from just south of Clayton shows:

Had a great time catching up with Dave (thanks for the steak dinner Dave!) and then went north 10 miles to Pikes Peak State Park to turn in early.
