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.

Yep, it's way up there in the Arrowhead. For those of you who don't know what that is; it's the pointy area of northern Minnesota along Lake Superior.

A good time was had by all.

More dispatches from Brazil

After a thousand miles of driving an under-powered Renault SUV and two flights, I'm back in Rio de Janeiro.
We stopped to get gas in the middle of nowhere earlier today and this guy, rolls up in black leathers on big ass Yamaha cruiser. Through our translator I learn this Brazilian rider started his journey in the US and rode down from California (he also mentioned something about going to Key West). Anyhow, we kinda chatted for a while, hugged and then went our separate ways.
He belongs to a club called Aubutres Brasil (Brazilian Vultures). He had all sorts of stickers on his bike, of course in Portuguese. The photo of his gas tank translates to, "The strong got it, the weak gave up, the cowards did not even try." He was bad ass.
Note the photo of him proudly holding a Red Wing IronWorks Motorbike Club card.
The roads outside Rio de Janeiro are good motorcycling roads, if you have a bike with enough power to pass going up a hill. Nearly all the cars here have small engi…
