It's Friday. What have we learned from the HDSALAB blog?

Did you know that there's a new blog out there dedicated to the mission of getting women interested in motorcycles by showcasing handsome dudes standing around and looking at them?  Did you know that same blog is full of tips and tricks to help handsome dudes appear more interesting and attractive to women while they stand around and look at bikes?  Did you know that same blog provides tech tips to transform Royal Enfields into Sportsters?  Well, now you do: HDSALAB

February 2015 Events

There are three big motorcycle shows to help get you through the typically frigid cold of February.

The Progressive International Motorcycle is 2/6-2/8 at the Minneapolis Convention Center.  The primary focus of the show is new models from all the big manufacturers but there are typically some custom and vintage bikes to look at too.  There's usually a stunting show too.  This will be my 9th consecutive year attending.  My prior blog posts are tagged International Motorcycle Show.

If you're willing to drive, the Mama Tried Motorcycle Show is 2/21-2/22 in Milwaukee, WI.  Last year was the first year.  I didn't attend but the photos I saw made it look amazing.  I'm hoping to check it out this year.  The focus is hand-selected, top quality custom bikes.  There's also a pre-party at the Harley-Davidson Museum on Friday (2/20) and ice riding/racing on Sunday.

At the end of the month, the 10th Annual Rochester Bike Show is 2/28 in Rochester, MN at the Mayo Civic Center.  I like this show a lot and this will be my 4th consecutive year attending.  It has a good mix of local custom motorcycles and there's a swap meet too.  My blog posts are tagged Rochester.

Donnie Smith Bike Show 2014 - Part 9

If you attended the 2014 Donnie Smith Bike Show, you should have noticed a group of bikes in the back-left of the main floor.  If you missed them, there's something seriously wrong with you.  I've posted lots of photos of these bikes at various shows over the years and have no intention of stopping.

One last post from the show featuring 3 more bikes is up next!
