Motorcycle Movie Night installment No. 3 is Jan. 9

at Paul Jr's. Rumor is that he is feverishly looking for the best motorcycle flick ever. Fun starts at 7 p.m. And since there have been many questions about dates and places, etc., for Walt Ride 2016 (it's Nebraska, remember?) the executive committee will hash out all  the gory details pertaining to the upcoming event. Tim has  been thoughtful enough to provide the following links about his ol' stomping grounds.

Riding season officially opens tomorrow...

Or, if you are like rest of  us suffering through the ill effects of el-nino (har har har), you've  probably never put your bike away. Whatev. Anyhooo, today is the shortest day of the year and that means the days start getting longer tomorrow. And that means more daylight, Bubba, Here at the Red Wing Ironworks Motorbike Club garage in sunny downtown Red Wing, we officially recognize the first day of spring as tomorrow; and hence, the commencement of the new riding season. No, there is nothing in our Kool-aid except a copious amount of vodka. If you don't like our way of thinking, then go take your snowmobile for a ride (another har har har). Others in the world agree with us.  For proof, go to link:

All the rumors are true

Motorcycle Movie Night is this Saturday at Bill's; 7 p.m. starts the social hour.  And don't forget about the while elephant gift exchange; why that's the perfect time to give away that old, worn out Dunlop that's been sitting around ye olde garage. Who wouldn't want take that home? Fair Marie is cooking up some vittles, snacks and she said something about a cake. Otherwise, bring what you will, Willis.

Mission accomplished

When I brought home the new Tiger 800 last January, my goal was to ride in every month of 2015. Nailed December this afternoon under blue skies and a temp that was a balmy 38-degrees.  A stupid thing to shoot for? Probably. But it just goes to prove that riding motorcycles can be viable even in the "chilly" months. Don't let nobody tell you otherwise, got that? Good. Previously, I have ridden every in month but not 12 months consecutively or within a single-calendar year. Celebratory libations provided by Red Hook's Long Hammer IPA. By the way, the forecast for the rest of the week will be calling for "above average" temps. Yeah buddy, that's what I'm talking 'bout.
