Geez, there is nothing going on..

If you're bored on Wednesday night and have nowhere to go for Thanksgiving, then why join all your motorcycling buddies for a bevie and a toast to the holidays. 7 p.m at the Barrell House. Good day.

It's official; Walt Ride 2011 is on the books.

Boy, are we freaking organized or what? No, not really. It was more of a drunken discussion over cocktails at one of our favorite watering holes in Red Wing, which by the way, is going through a name change. Makes no difference as this establishment has a bomb-ass happy hour and we're fine with that. Anyway, the executive committee has decided that Walt Ride 2011 - as usual - will take place over the 3rd weekend of June. Looking at a 3 or 4 day ride using Richland Center, Wis., as the hub of all the activity. This will be a camping event; no ditty bopping around from hotel to hotel. Also up for consideration is a foray into Iowa to the National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa. Stay tuned for details.

It's November 6 and...

damn near 60 degrees. Went out today with Sir Robert to slay some 'sconie back roads. Had a hoot for what may be the last time out for any serious riding. We shall see. Pulled into Pepin for the usual cup or three of afternoon Joe and a lot of guys came rolling in: Beemers; Guzzis and Triumphs; all trying to make the most of a great afternoon. Too bad about the daylight's saving deal, because it's dark at 5 p.m. I suppose that is a sign that we need to batten things down for the winter. Don't forget about Motorbike Movie Night on Nov. 13 at Bill's Whoop, whoop, whoop.

Motorbike Movie Night resumes for Winter

Back by popular demand, Motorbike Movie night will take up official residence this winter on the second Saturday of the month; 7 p.m. start time. We here at the IronWorks will watch any movie, just as long as there is a motorcycle involved. Documentary? for sure; action/adventure? No doubt about it. Comedy? Hear us laughing in the back? Romance? Well, we were forced once to suffer through "Girl On A Motorcycle" but the flick was redeemed during a cheesy crash scene when a mock-up of the lovely protagonist was flung through a truck window at speed. Nothing adds realism than a stiff mannequin going through a windshield. Bill has dibs on Nov. 13; and Scot has dibs on Dec. 11. Be there, aloha.

From The Dept. of Stuff To Do

This afternoon at 5 p.m. be at the Red Wing ELC (Environmental Learning Center) to hear about Doug’s motorcycle trip to Vietnam last summer....
