This past Thursday was Motorcycle First Thursday at Dulono’s Pizza in Minneapolis. I missed January due to my Malaysia trip, so I was looking forward to seeing some friends. I had also heard that there were no motorcycles in January.
When I arrived on my Ural, the parking lot was covered in ice and snow. It was full of cars, but I managed to squeeze between a car and a truck. One of them was taking up a space and a half. Fortunately, the Ural only needs half a space.
I went inside and had a nice time chatting with friends. Later my friend Jeff appeared on his DRZ400 shown below. He was quite brave to ride so far given the road conditions. The cold is the easy part, but the ice and snow are a bit unforgiving.
Jeff found out the hard way on the way home why I like a sidecar for winter. He crashed on some ice. Both he and the bike were fortunately ok.
