After about a 3 1/2 hour drive from Springfield, I pulled into the small town of West Branch, Iowa. It sits along I-80, about 10 miles south of Iowa City, home of the Iowa Hawkeyes.

The problem with rally week is too many bikers, seriously, hundreds, and some of these tunnels are one lane on the top of the hill. So I wish that we could do this on an off week.
