Here are some hand-picked local events worth checking out this month. Of course, tonight is bike night with First Thursday at Dulono's Pizza and Moto Mania at the VFW. (click for blog posts: Dulono's and VFW)
If you want to check out a hillclimb, the Valley Springs Motorcycle Club is hosting one in Bay City, WI on Sunday, 9/6. I went last year and it's pretty fun to watch (click for blog posts).
The 10th (and final) Minneapolis Messaround is also this Sunday 9/6. It's mostly cars (very cool ones) but there are usually a few bikes there too (click for blog posts)
The 25th Annual SCVR Chili Feed is Friday & Saturday nights 9/11-9/12. This is one big party. It's been a few years since I've attended but it's a good time (click for blog posts). The admission may seem a little expensive at first but you get free camping, all-you-can-drink beer & all-you-can-eat chili on Saturday, live music, and the money supports the SCVR so it's actually a really good deal.
The 6th Annual Rad's Extra Sharp Motorcycle Show is Saturday 9/12. This is usually a favorite of mine (click for blog posts) but unfortunately I won't be able to attend this year.
September 19th has a TON of good events to choose from. First up is the 50th Annual Fall Flood Run (NEW STARTING LOCATION!). I've attended many times over the years and it's incredible how many bikes it draws (click for blog posts).
9/19 is also the 5th Annual Konawerks Bike Show. It's a fun show for a good cause (click for blog posts).
As if those weren't two really good options, there is a third. The Flying Dutchman Motorcycle Club is hosting flat track racing 9/19 and 9/20 down in New Ulm, MN. I've never been to this but ever since Moto Mania, I've wanted to see real flat track in person. New Ulm is a cool little town and it's home to Schell's Brewery.
Still not enough options? How about another hillclimb? This one is organized by the Indianhead Motorcycle Club and takes place in Red Wing on both 9/19 and 9/20, right along the Flood Run. I haven't been to this particular venue before but hillclimbs are cool.
Still not enough variety for you??? The Moto Collective and CROIG is hosting a motorcycle scavenger hunt called The Great Escape!!! This sounds like it could be pretty fun if you want to try something different. Don't forget to pre-register!
What? You haven't checked out The Moto Collective yet? Well don't miss 4th Friday bike night on 9/25 (click for blog posts).
I haven't heard whether there will be a Scooter Trash 5 at the end of the month but I'll keep you posted (click for blog posts). I still need to post photos from last year! I am so behind... As I've said many times, bloggin' ain't easy.
