Last night was Motorcycle First Thursday in Minneapolis. I showed up straight after work. The weather was fantastic, so lots of people showed up. I had a great time as usual. Here are some of the motorcycles I enjoyed looking at.
A nice clean Bimota.
The above and below bike was easily my favorite bike of the night. A 90s Honda turned into a trash bike. There was so much to see. I looked back at it several time. There are so many little touches. I really like the side panniers from cat litter boxes. The little stick on the windshield is nice too “The Buck Stopped Here” I am guessing he hit a deer and totaled the motorcycle.
A very clean Kawasaki. I like it.
If you have a heavy bike, this is why you use a sidestand puck. A large hole in the parking lot.
Scary hello kitty on an all pink bike. I like it.
Extra gas tank instead of a passenger seat provides this rider 350 miles of range. She said she has even ridden the 300 miles several times without stopping. Wow. Nevermind iron butt, that’s iron bladder.
Madass 125. I like it.
A really custom pit bike.
Newer EFI Royal Enfield.
Custom moped! Can pedal or use the engine to drive the rear wheel.
Hundreds and hundreds of people throughout the night.
One of the few sidecars I saw.
A GSXR rear and a ATV front-end… I wonder how it handles.
This front wheel is huge! And yes, the whole bike is about an inch off the ground.
It was a fun time. I am looking forward to next month.
