News flash.....

As of Nov. 2, Smokey Row Cafe will be no more. Our home for coffee, breakfast, pre-ride gatherings will shut its doors next Saturday. This has been the official coffee hang out for the Red Wing Ironworks Motorbike Club for many years. Its owners have always put up with our presence and we are sad to see this place go.

More man stuff

McQueen: bikes, chicks, smokes, booze, fast cars and yes, motorsickles....

The Man Who Would Not Stop at Nothing is gone

Famed and noted long distance rider John Ryan was killed Sunday in a motorcycle accident in northern New Jersey. Ryan was the subject of book "The Man Who Would Stop At Nothing" penned by Melissa Holbrook Pierson, chronicling the life of Ryan as a long distance rider. Ryan was also a speaker at the Very Boring Rally last August in Duluth and was noted for the "NASA" patch on a very well-worn Aereostich Roadcrafter suit that he kept on round the clock. John was a member of the Iron Butt Association as are some members of the Ironworks Motorbike Club. Godspeed, John.
