Two Wheels Only

This past weekend was FULL of things to do in MN. We originally planned to head North to Brainerd for motorcycle racing but Kyle suggested we should stay home and take advantage of local entertainment and I agreed. We also agreed to go everywhere on our motorcycles. Friday night we went to dinner with some friends and then stopped at a local hotel to see some of the street rods which were in town for Back to the 50's. Then we went near the fairgrounds, I say near because the traffic was SO busy. We plopped down in the grass and watched for a while. 10,872 cars were here for the show, unbelievable!

Then Saturday morning we went to Betty's Bikes & Buns for the kickoff of the MN1000 rally. Sort of what I did last weekend but on a much grander scale. It's a 24 hour rally which consists of the 5 state area (MN, IA, WI, ND, SD) plus Canada. This photo is just a fraction of the bikes that were at Betty's. We were thinking of heading over there again Sunday morning for the return of the riders but had other things in mind.

Saturday afternoon I rode over to Hudson WI for my cousins baby shower. She LOVED the booties.

Saturday night we were invited to a friends house for a BBQ and then headed toward the fairgrounds again to get our car fix for the day. Again, super busy traffic but fun anyway. Sunday we took a father's day ride to the Blind Lizard Rally on Nicollet Island and then back to the fairgrounds to see more cars. This time we ate outside at Dino's and watched the cars drive by, most were leaving the fairgrounds to head for home. I easily logged over 200 miles on my bike and what a beautiful weekend it's still 82ยบ!
