Sent in by some girl that I know in Manhattan, KS. In front of Tall Grass Brewery, no less.

A few things to note

1) There will be an official Red Wing Ironworks Motorbike Club jaunt this Sat nite to spectate the Minnesota Roller Girls at the Roy in St. Paul. All the cool kids are going, Cletus.

2) There is talk of Walt Ride 2018: bourbon country. There is some halfway decent riding down in Corntucky. And bourbon. Did I mention bourbon?

3) Triumph e-mag here: For The Ride

4)Two Dudes on a motorcycle; I rode bitch with Little Timmy once. Of course we were on our way to pick up a Kawasaki ZRX1200 in the Cities.

The ride over to Dennison didn't look too promising either as road conditions were horrible. Certainly not conducive for motorcycle riding, let alone a timed derby event. We loaded the bikes anyway and headed out at 9 a.m. At minimum we'd have a beer at the Fireside Lounge in Dennison if things didn't work out. But about five miles out the roads got better and were mostly clear of ice and snow. We arrived at 9:40 to a hand full of bikes.
