Hey Winter, screw you and the horse you rode in on

Get teased this last week with 50 damn degrees and now you're snowing? Another foot coming. Winter can bite my ass.

Rumors are afoot that

the law of Goodhue County, MN is planning a "crackdown" on motorcyclists in July. Probably just a wider dragnet of DWI enforcement, but just the same make sure you got your tabs up to date, and that insurance card handy. It's unfortunate for those of us who are not stuntas, squids, and bar posers, need to get caught up in the hasslin' from da man. The law would be better served uping enforcement during the annual Spring and Fall flood runs when the riding drunks come out in droves for that "hard core" ride around the lake. You read it here first.

Super Bowl...

Thanks Rob and Michelle for most excellent Super Duper Bowl Party, Whoop Whoop.

And don't forget, MMN next week

It will be a Sir Robert's house. It is guaranteed to be a blow out as it is also his birthday. Mayhem is certain to follow.

It was a swell day at the ol' motorcycle show....

Sir Robert, Christian and myself took it in yesterday at the Minneapolis Convention Center. Sure, there were the usual suspects present and accounted for, but alas, no Triumph or BMW, and some smaller outfits not represented (Guzzi, KTM....Stooopid economy.) Anyhow, Sir Rob and I volunteered three hours to help promote the National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa, Iowa. Our job was to hand out brochures, stickers, and talk up the museuem, steer people to the raffle for a '47 Knucklehead replica bike, and to get them through the display. We also chatted up the American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association event at Road America on June 11-12. Rob, ever the schmooozer, meet a couple of riders who have an interest in joining in on the fun with the IronWorks club this summer. Now if we could only get rid of that stupid snow. Anyhow, it was good and we had an excellent time, and we received a free museum t-shirt for our effort and I bought a really cool old racing poster for the man-cave.

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....
