July is always a big month for local motorcycle events in the Twin Cities. You can find lots of blog posts and photos from when I've attended these events in the past on my Guide to Local Events page.
Of course, the first Thursday of every month is bike night at Dulono's Pizza and the event just keeps growing. Dulono's just announced they will have beer in the parking lot and live music inside. Next month, they're planning something big including a band outside too. While Dulono's has been hosting First Thursday for years, July marks the 3rd month of Moto Mania, hosted by the nearby Uptown VFW. It's a very short walk from Dulono's (practically across the street) so there's no reason not to check out both.
On Thursday, July 10th, you have your choice of attending the 19th Annual Ma Rad's Rumble on the Deck in Stillwater or checking out the Oil & Ink Motorbike Print Expo in Minneapolis. I wish these events were on different nights as I'm not sure whether I can hit both but I might try.
That Saturday, July 12th is the 4th Annual Full Tilt Boogie Chopper Show at Tavern on the Avenue in St. Paul. If you love the style of bikes you see in Show Class and DicE, don't miss this event. I have attended the last 3 years and it keeps getting better. Expect to have your mind blown.
Alternatively, if you would rather camp, drink, and ride (not necessarily in that order) instead of hanging out at a bike show, the SCVR's Round Barn Rally is also that day. I attended a few years back and it was fun. If you go, be sure to sign up for the ride!
The following Saturday, July 19th, is the Bearded Lady Motorcycle Freakshow at the 331 Club in northeast Minneapolis. This event is awesome - don't miss it.
