Last week, was Motorcycle First Thursday at Dulono’s Pizza in Minneapolis. It rained earlier in the day which initially put a damper on the starting attendance, but as the evening wore on the crowds started to come out. It was set to be the first well attended First Thursday of 2014. I would guess there was easily over 1,000 people there.
The crowds grew as more and more motorcycles rolled into the area. The energy was electric. I loved the sound of the inline four sportbikes bouncing off the rev limiters as cruisers rumbled slowly by with the two stroke pitbikes ring-ding-dinging in the background. A great noise. The weather was near perfect and the crowd was fun.
I enjoyed looking at the bikes and of course catching up with friends. I left the event early to watch the Isle of Man TT races with some racing friends downtown. It was a great night to be on a motorcycle.
I’ve never seen the above/below custom vehicle before. It took him a few laps to find a parking spot.
A fun color scheme on this one:

I have a soft spot for scooter sidecars. Aren’t they cute?
