Red 650 on I-80 in Iowa

When I was coming back from my nephew's wedding in Omaha today in the family van, I was passed by a red DL650 (probably the K6) on I-80 just about two miles west of Adair, IA around 2 PM today.

I then sped up to pass the guy so I could get a better look. Looks like he had the MP Cycle Designs windscreen with the Madstad bracket and what looked like to be either Hepco & Becker black sidecases of else they were Jesse sidecases. Solo rider was wearing some sort of 3/4 length olive green with gray jacket and a silver helmet.

I slowed down again so he could pass me as it looked like he was in a hurry. I think he pulled off at a rest stop just east of Adair. Looked like he was having no problem keeping up with the traffic!

So, who's the guilty party?

K6 DL1000 - GIVI V46, GIVI V35s and GIVI crash bars, Madstad, Murph's Brace, Pro-Taper ATV Hi bars
1981 GS650L (for sale)
1977 GS550 (first love)

I hate riding on 80 in IA. The wind sucks, its always gusting. And the trucks are all hauling butt. I'm glad to be out of that area.

BTW it was not me.
