URL Rewrite--redirecting to main URL when a specific folder gets entered


I'm trying to use IIS' URL Rewrite to map any entry for a domain with /menus back to the original domain.

www.example.com/menus  -->  www.example.com
www.example.com/menus/ --> www.example.com
www.example.com/menus/index.htm --> www.example.com

and the same when the www. is omitted.

I've been trying variants on:

                <rule name="Remove_Menus" stopProcessing="true">
                    <match url="^(.*)(menus)$" />
                    <action type="Redirect" url="http://example.com" />

Am getting tripped up by this though.  What I want is if anyone enters .../menu or something below menu, it will redirect to the main url.  ??

The condition worked but how I framed the result to return seemed to have issues.  
I just need to get more knowledgeable about this functionality.  Came across Scott Forsyth's Youtube videos and he seems to do a good job of explaining it.  Will view a few of those and circle back if I have questions.

Thanks much!

This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
