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:
Ural sidecar on a cruiser:
I have a soft spot for scooter sidecars. Aren’t they cute?
Did u get a chance to talk to the cruiser/Ural rig owner about the rig's handling?ReplyDelete
Nope, owner was not near the bike and with 1000 people walking around kinda hard.Delete
The number of bikes that come to your First Thursdays never cease to amaze me.ReplyDelete
We like our bikes in Minnesota :-)Delete
Not simply the number of bikes but the variety. That custom three wheeler is pretty interesting.ReplyDelete
