Stuff to do this weekend.....

1) Moto Mania at the Steele County Fairgrounds in Owatonna. See pic below for the details. We attended the first Moto Mania last year: it was a blast. If you're prissy and don't like getting dirty, I guess you could take yer Ma to the Guthrie Theater or somethin'.

 2) Twin Cities Adventure Riders is hosting a ride on Sunday from Hastings to Red Wing. Check the group's link to the right and head to "events" at its website.
If you decide to do nothing this weekend and get bored, that's your problem and not our fault: we gave you two great things to do.

"Ride to Work" day

Is Monday, June 20. Why, that's tomorrow and naturally you should ride your motorcycle to work. Don't take the car, take yer bike.  Duh.
