Flags are at half-staff here at the Ironworks Motorbike Club

In honor of Moto GP racer Marco Simoncelli who lost his life earlier today in a horrific crash at the Malaysian Grand Prix. Simoncelli was just 24 years old and a rising star in the circuit. He was 6th in the standings and took two podiums this year. For more on the story, check in with Superbike Planet, another fine website based in Red Wing:

Scenes from Octoberfest/The Big Burn


Our man contemplates his fate as the evening approaches. Oh the woe and agony.


Sir Robert and Christian enjoying a samich and a cookie with beer. Yum.


This is what happens when children get ahold of an unattended camera.


Some homeless guy named Otto showed up and is now BFF with Jen. They Facebook all the time now.


The Thinker gets tossed into the pit, shortly after his head popped off and smashed all over the fire pit patio.


This is why the Ironworks Motorbike Club freaking rocks....

Because of the members, friends and family that stopped by for the annual Octoberfest Party, we raised over $350 for a member in need. Damn, I am proud of you guys, and you really kicked it in when it counted. You are truly a special group of people.

And here is something random and totally unrelated to motorcycling.

Hard to believe there was advertising like this, but we do like the tallboys; 16 ounces of Milwaukee's finest swill...

Just a few more days until the 3rd annual Ironworks Octoberfest

So, get on down to Bill's house with your favorite Octoberfest beer and we will have a hearty laugh at the foo foos who show up with their watered down to nothing girly-boy limp livered light froo froo beer. I didn't want to invite them, but the Fair Marie made me. So that only means that we will have more to drink of the stuff that will melt yer tongue and singe your eyeballs. If you're looking for a glass of waa waa, go talk to your mommy.

And on a serious note, please tell those who are coming to bring a donation to help a club member whose son was seriously injured in an accident (unreleated to motorcycling). Any contribution is greatly appreciated.

Moto-Art


Whoooa. What a weekend it was

And the nice weather will continue on for the rest of the week, which is fabulous for us as we keep that riding season extended. And don't forget, there are social functions a-plenty. A kick ass end of summer party this weekend at Christian's and a kick-ass welcome to fall Octoberfest party at Bill's on the 15th. Whoop whoop.
