Motorcycles and winter: the perfect combo

Why not? Don't give a damn about college football? Cabin fever? Need to escape the screaming brats who've been cooped up over the holidays and are bored with their Xmas booty already? Well, Bub, have we got a deal for you and here it is; the 2017 I-Cycle Derby in Minneapolis on on New Year's Day. This rally, only for the strong of heart, has been going on for 60 some-odd years. It's going to be a balmy 30-degrees and the sun is supposed to shine.

Merry Christmas, peeps.

Sorry, all the sappy images of fat Santa riding a Harley with a bag of toys and a Christmas tree riding bitch were all emptied out from the Department of Cliches for this holiday season.

Official Walt Ride 2017 announcement

The Exalted High Committee of the Red Wing Ironworks Motorbike Club has released Walt Ride 2017 dates: it's on the books for June 23 through June 27; destination Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Paul, Jr. is designing this year's ride. No camping; el rancho cheap-o motel is the way we're going. We're so excited, it's only six months away.

Exalted High Committee. Yes, they are twins. Really.

Not to ruminate ad nauseum about the weather

But today's snow brought an end to - what we've labeled all along - extended summer. But on the bright side the Winter Solstice is ten days away,  marking the shortest day of the year.  Seasonal affective disorder aside, there is an up to all of this. On Dec. 22 the days get longer. That's the start of spring in our book, Bub, and the beginning of the new riding season. See, winter ain't so bleak after all (lol).

And if yer still bummed out by the weather, you can attend this Saturday's Ton Up Club Winter Blot in Minneapolis. Go here for details:
