From the Dept of Misinformation

Plans are afoot for 2020 riding season, which did officially start on Dec.22, the first day of spring. First things first; any day that is sorta warm with clear roads, we're riding. Outside of that, we have a few events in the hopper.
1) Mama Tried Motorcycle Show in Milwaukee on March 13-15. Speak up if you are in and let the Ring Master of Fun-Du-Lake know soon. We need a head count. Also, the Friday indoor flat track racing is a hoot. The Devo guy and the chicken racer we're the best to watch at last year's event.

2) Single track adventure riding at Huntersville, MN is on the book for May 15-17. Yes, this is a dual sport event with dirt, mud and such. Our man Douglas is said Ring Master of that event. Ride all day, stay in his cabin at night. Drink beer, tell stories and brag about stuff that never really happens in our dull lives.

3) Walt Ride 2020 is on the calendar for June 11-14. Short one this year to accommodate all. Destination likely western Wisconsin twisties into Iowa. Iowa? Iowa? Damn straight, Sparky.

Be on standby for more to come. Otherwise......

Motorcycle Movie Night this Saturday

Oh my, the first one of the New Year at Little Timmy's. Also, it is a BYOB Event (Bring Yer Own Bourbon) Yes, bring your favorite or un-favorite bottle of bourbon (or other whiskey) for a round or two of tasting. Please note: showing up with a cheap-ass bottle of Stab-n-Kill will result in expulsion from the Red Wing Ironworks Motorbike Club and being duct taped to a tree. Mayhem starts at 7 p.m. Bring what you will, Cletus.

What People Did Today...

Some road motorcycles......

New Year's day polar bear plunged in Milwaukee.

Out for coffee. Also in Milwaukee.

Home for coffee and motorcycle magazines while Sir Robert rode in the I-Cycle Derby in Mpls.

Who Got To Ride Today?

Me? Nope. This guy? Hell yeah, and in drier weather than we had here in Fred Wing. Mark squeezed in his December ride near Fun Du Sac, 'Sconsin. Look, Ma... no snow, neither!!!! (But snow on the grass is OK, though; it covers a lot of dog pooh.) Mark has officially joined the Early Spring Rider's Faction of the Red Wing Ironworks Motorbike Club.

Zen And The Art of Smithsonian

The Zen bike from Robert Pirsig's "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" is landing at the mother ship of all things culturally significant: the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History. Story here:

Pirsig, born in Minneapolis, wrote "Zen" as both a narrative of a motorcycle trip with his son and his personal beliefs in philosophy. It is the book that needs to be in every motorcycle library.

Well, Damn...

We got some snow coming tomorrow. Beside that announcement, 146 days until the Walt Ride 2020.
