This past First Thursday at Dulono’s Pizza in Minneapolis was the first I’ve been able to attend in several months. Between teaching BRCs and other events, I was not able to make it. It was nice to see all the motorcycles and feel the buzz of the crowd.
There were several thousand people in attendance. I would have expected a bit more given the near perfect weather.
One of the strangest “bikes” I’ve seen in a while was the photo above and below. It looked like it had a sidecar chair on the front and a goldwing on the back for a total of three wheels. The front also had a shifter and a steering wheel. I couldn’t locate the owner to ask more questions, but it was a bit weird. Several of us gawking at it started to discuss whether we’d rather ride in the front or on the back. I had a hard time deciding. Where would you rather be?
A well placed helmet on this beautiful old bike.
A couple other old bikes for the gawking.
A nine inch rally light on this converted dirt bike. I bet that thing is bright! They are normally used for rallies like Dakar and Baja.
A spare spark plug on this engine. Strange. I think it’d foul sitting in there.

Like the cookie monster helmet!
Not a huge fan of the camo KLR.
Disney edition Harley? lol.
The ugliest windshield I have ever seen, and it was on a Ninja. Just a giant hunk of plastic taped to the bike.
A 1970s Rokon. Cool. I’d like to ride one of these sometime. Love the 2WD.
A close-up of the driveshaft coming out of the frame into the sprocket setup on the front wheel.
Some more old bikes.
I like the dragon paint job on this bike.
This month, there was a parking cop writing a LOT of tickets. This is the first time I’ve seen them at this event. Be careful where you park!
