Got eight minutes?

Sure you do. Watch this short movie on the Britten bikes returning to the Isle of Man TT. Some good moto history and culture. And the website that posted the short is cool, too: total gearhead content. Go grab a bourbon and sit back.

Unlike a Ural..... just saying.

Wausau, Wis. dude clocks a million miles on his Honda. Story here:

Million Mile Honda Motorcycle

Hope Honda steps up and gives him a new one.

If Steve Austin had a bike, it would be a One Million Mile Honda.
And is Steve running with cocaine packets taped to his jogging outfit?

We got some hillclimbing to do this weekend

Red Wing's very own Indianhead Motorcycle Club will host the 2017 AMA Hillclimb Grand Chanpionship this freaking weekend in Red Wing. This is a big deal, Roy, and don't let nobody say otherwise. Runs Saturday and Sunday in conjunction with River City Days. Drop your wife off at some girlie shop downtown, let her buy stupid stuff for the kitchen and get your ass out to the hillclimb grounds. Unless, of course, wifey-wife likes dirt clods being flung at her head, then bring her along. A swell time to be had by all, for sure. Linky gives up the details and the Indianhead Club website.

At  Jam Pot near Copper Harbor.
 Run by Monks of the Byzantine rite, under the jurisdiction of  the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of St. Nicholas.
 Duh. Everyone knows that.

Gay Bar. In Gay. MI. Derp.

Sir Robert's pre-flight ritual. Not sure what it is.

Dinner of champions. Bourbon, Cheetos and gas station burritos from 1989.
