Moto Mania update....

Slight change in schedule as posted over in Google Group but take note of it here as well:

0830 - Caribou Coffee RW
0930 - Departure for Owatonna. Tim has a route and we're following him.
1030-1100 - Arrival at the Steele Co. Fairgrounds for two-wheeled mayhem and other shenanigans.

Our Ironworks Motorbike Club scout in the field has reported that Hyvee in Owatonna has an amply supplied liquor store for our entertainment. Weather looks good; bring yer tent and what not. Tell Ma you'll see her Sunday.

A peek at some British Iron at the British Biker Cooperative rally

This past weekend at Eagle Cave Campground, Blue River, Wis. Shared a campsite with Jim and Mark, two old-school Triumph guys who provided a shit-ton of knowledge about some very cool vintage bikes. How cool was that? Very.

Stuff to do......

next weekend...

1) Lorem Ipsum Motorcycle rally, Viroqua, Wis. July 18.

2) Bearded Lady Motorcycle Freakshow; Minneapolis, MN. July 18.
Always a favorite of the Red Wing Ironworks Motorbike Club. One can also partake of the numerous tap rooms in Nordeast Minneapolis.

3)British Biker Cooperative annual motorcycle rally. Blue River, Wis. July 17-19.
Hey, look; it is right down the road from the Lorem Ipsum Rally. Someone from the club is going to do a two-fer rally weekend while the rest of you BMW rally nerds go west.

This post approved by early 80s Bill Murray who would show up to one these events if he only rode a motorcycle.

Where are they now?

No, this is not some "People" magazine child-star retrospective article about a bunch of 70s and 80s child actors who are all methed-out and living in the trailer park in Laughlin, Nevada. No sir, man, this is important stuff right here. Go to the link and see where your favorite Ironbutt Rally rider is now located.

Dirt drag racing ... Who knew?

Say it ain't so, Burt

Burt Shavitz, of Burt's Bees fame, has passed away. He was a BMW guy and if recent memory serves me right, the BMW Owner's Club of America did a recent profile of Burt in it's wonderful magazine. So long, Burt and have a nice ride.

Yo, Happy Merry July 4....

I tried to find a good image of a dude lighting a bottle rocket from his ass, but I found this instead. Far more pleasing. Now, quit looking at this stoopid stuff and go grill some hotdogs. And remember to give a nod to the bad asses that founded this country, too.
