1st motorcycle movie night of the season.... In pictures.

Tim selected "Litte Fauss and Big Halsy", a 1970 classic with Robert Redford. We also viewed the documentary "Brittown" about some dudes on the west coast who ride Triumphs.

Tin enjoys the night's feature film as his Uncle Blutto looks over his shoulder.

This dude won the grand prize: a dirty biker magazine that is at least 15 years old, and a bottle of beer. And his is being mocked in the background.

Chuck and Paul Jr., enjoying, what else? Chapstick

This is what happens when you nod off at motorcycle movie night.
This is what you look like when you wake up at motorcycle movie night.

Tis the season for......Motorcycle Movie Night, ya bastards

The first installment of the season will be this Saturday, Saturday, Saturday at Little Timmy's; shit starts at 7 p.m. All the stops will be pulled on this one; Tim reports a special movie on tap for the evening. There could be nudity; there could be explosions and there will be cuss words (mostly from me.) But one thing is certain, there will be a freaking motorcycle. As usual, bring what you will, Clarence.

This post is approved by these chicks, who will be there Saturday night to beat you within an inch of your life if you dare touch their cocktails. Got that?

To Dodger, one of the best dogs, ever

 Our dog of 15 years was put down today; Age finally caught up to Dodger, and it was time to see him off. He now rests in a beautiful spot on Windbeam Farms over looking a rolling field and trees beyond. He was truly one of the best dogs a family could have.

Don't forget....

Next Saturday is the 89th annual Red Wing Ironworks Motorbike Club's Octoberfest/Big Burn party.
There will be:
- a keg of Rush River Unforgiven amber ale
- food, probably
- hula girls
- entertainment (our stoopid conversations are always entertaining)
- a firework display that will rival the Fourth of July (not really)
- art work to be burned (tis true)
- 10 bands will be playing the main stage for your musical pleasure (not true).
- free autographs from George Clooney (also not true).
- wit, wisdom, great motorcycle tales, and as usual, lots of cussin' and smart talk.

The forecast for weather is sun and probably in the low 60s. What a freaking deal.

And as usual, if you don't like good beer and need to drink foo foo stuff, bring what you will, Clarence.

Mayhem starts 7 p.m. at Bill's.
This girl is so excited to be at the Octoberfest/Big Burn

The Red Wing coppers get their man

And fortunately, it was no one from the highly regarded, esteemed world-wide Red Wing Ironworks Motorbike Club. Ark ark ark.

This just in from Central Command, part 2....

Another guy in our riding band of merry brothers hit a milestone: Mark just clocked 70,000 on his BMW. For all you conspiracy theory types, here is your proof: a photo.

The keg has been ordered.....

and is on reserve for the 27th annual Red Wing Ironworks Motorbike Club's Octoberfest/Big Burn, set for Oct. 11. As an FYI, I will pick up the keg around 1 p.m. on the 11th, which coincidentally is the day of the brewery's monthly tour and beer tasting. Imagine that.

Ding-dong, the wicked witch, the wicked witch, the wicked witch is dead.

DMG finally gives up it's ruinous reign of sanctioning motorcycling road racing in the United States. Will someone turn the lights back on? Will we see a return to racing prominence stateside? Will we see talent being developed? Will we see Superbike racing being relevant again? Bet yer ass, because Wayne Rainey is involved in the new sanctioning body taking over. For details, go here:

Cycle World visits Red Wing.

The October 2014 issues of Cycle World features an article (page 18) on the new Indian Roadmaster  motorcycle. Big deal, you say; we're sport touring types around here.  Scoff all ye want, but the article makes mention of riding the bike through Red Wing and includes a picture of the bike in front of our historic clubhouse (ark ark ark ark...), the Ironworks building along the water front. Look closely and you'll see Red Wing's famous flower baskets and the St. James in the background. There is also a nice picture of the bike at one of the rest stop/overlooks down river. Though the author of the story, Mark Hoyer (also Editor In Chief of the magazine), contacted none of us for insight to local roads and scenic routes, good beer and or coffee, we'll catch him next time around.

Here is a link to the article as it appears on the Cycle World website, and with more photos: How cool is that?

7 PM on October 11. There will be fire. And everyone is required to dress like this:

Stay tuned for details.....

Rumblings are afoot about the Ironworks Motorbike Club's annual Octoberfest/Big Burn party. Though there has been some debate about when, it's probably going to be the 2nd weekend in October. There will be beer.
