And a buck to the first person who can properly interpret Guy Martin's manner of speaking.

Walt Ride 2013 countdown




Movie star in our midst.....

We all trucked over to Northfield last night to see the local premiere of "Girl Meets Bike" on the Carlton College campus. (http://www.girlmeetsbikemovie.com/). During the closing credits we learned that Neal had a huge and significant role in the movie: he was the flagman that started the rally from eastern Minnesota into Wisconsin. (And did you notice there was a nice, fast green ZRX in that sequence, too?) Without Neal's flag waving prowess, the ride never would have started with the same sense of urgency to ride like hell outta Dundas. After viewing the film, it's maker Eric Tretbar, answered questions on the making of "Girl Meets Bike" and hobnobbed with the likes of me. I passed along a Red Wing Ironworks Motorbike Club business card and informed him that if he ever made sequel or another motorbike movie, he could rely on us for extras. There are showings of this movie this upoming weekend at the Jagr Club for the Ton Up Motorcycle Club show on May 18 in Minneapolis, and for our lonely northern member on the outpost of Lake Superior, a showing in Duluth on June 1 at 5 p.m. at the Zinema 2 Theater.

Girl Meets Bike this Saturday, Saturday, Saturday (with echo)

The plan is for members of the Red Wing Ironworks Motorbike Club to attend one of the premieres of "Girl Meets Bike" this Saturday in Northfield. Show time is at 7 p.m. on the Carlton College campus and the cost is free. How 'bout that, Willis? However, it is a first come, first seated event. The plan is to meet up at Little Timmy's 'round 5 p.m. and make tracks from there. Some kind of socializing and mayhem to follow after the movie.

This just in from Leland, Wis...... Crud Run fotos

Brought to you by ace photo guy, Mark. He was there, live and in person. This is what he saw. And this is what the rest of us missed. (Thanks stoopid-ass snow storm that wrecked all my trees. I hate you Minnesota, I just hate you............ Now I feel better.)
