A few from the Black Magnolia bike rally

Today at Bauhaus Brew Labs in Mpls. Right smack-dab in the middle of Nordeast in a cool, old industrial building where they used to make large stuff. Now, they make beer. And host bike shows. It will sponsor another vintage bike night Sept.14.

From the Dept. of Damn, It's Only Tuesday

Stuff to be done - motorsickle wise - this weekend beside a ride:

1) Black Magnolia Motorcycle Rally at Bau Haus Brew Labs in NE Mpls. Yep, I am doing that. And this time around, I am coming home with a bad ass Bau Haus snapback trucker hat.

2) We are total and utter whores for motorcycle t-shirts at the RW Ironworks HQ in lovely downtown metropolitan Red Wing. That being said, Blue Cat Motors in St. Paul is hosting the Ignition Motorcycle T-shirt show on Saturday eve.


3) Team Lyle 8-hour rally.

Remember, if you get bored this weekend, it's your own damn fault.

75,000 miles and.....

Paul's Honda 1998 VFR 800 hit 75,000 miles at this exact spot on Highway 61 south of Winona. "Barely broken in," is what he muttered. Met up with Brett and Jen, who anchor the northern end of the Red Wing Ironworks Motorbike Club "up dare in Dooloot, yes sireee." Twas a swell day of riding. Tim's bike in second place with 60,000 miles. And it's for sale. Inquire within.

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?
