Just when you thought it was long gone, we’ve come back with the sixth edition of the Heritage Taproom Tour – and we’re pretty excited about this rounds picks! This month we are stopping off at some new spots around town. With the weather turning around now and winter being basically over (no thanks to that awful groundhog) we decided you’ll need to know where to go. Check it out and add one of these places to your must see brewery list for the upcoming patio season!   […]

Our 2017 Automotive Resolutions

Alex: “Using my vehicles for their intended purposes” Between using my Porsche for hauling kegs and groceries and my lifted 4Runner as a commuter vehicle, I feel both vehicles are slightly under-utilized. That means I’m hoping to take the Porsche on some more spirited drives and bring it out to more track days while also spending more time taking the 4Runner on actual adventures that don’t involve ramming through snowbanks at the nearest mall. That means I need to get the ball rolling on a few projects this winter like installing a half cage and the Recaro I have sitting in my garage into the Porsche and re-engineering the storage system in the back of the 4Runner to make it usable as a bed when I go camping.

Who knew there’d be so many motorcycles at Vegas’ biggest car show?

By | 2016-11-08T12:35:29+00:00 November 4th, 2016|Two Wheeled Tuesdays, Uncategorized|0 Comments

Normally when you go to one of the biggest car shows around you spend considerable time ogling the cars on display. This is true for 99.99999999% of attendees…that is unless you’re Adam. It seemed every time I turned around he was snapping another motorcycle picture. To his credit, there were a lot of neat bikes at the show. Let’s just hope he got some good car shots when he was there as well… […]

The Big, Great, Amazing, 5-Mile Journey in the Mini Horse

By | 2016-09-14T13:57:00+00:00 September 14th, 2016|Two Wheeled Tuesdays|0 Comments

Who doesn’t love moving? All the boxes being packed, everyone stressed about having too much stuff, trying to lift with the legs and not the back…It’s a mess. That is why I wanted to lend a hand to a friend who’s family was moving out of their house after being there for 30 some years. Also he has a classic motorcycle, so by default I’m in the hopper for helping, and also having access to a sweat heart of a truck doesn’t hurt anything. I love the mini truck. I call it “Mini Horse” because when you haul two people through the mountains in the middle of December, you can form a special bond with a vehicle and at that point it deserves nickname. Well this wasn’t a journey across the country, but it was a good excuse to stretch the Mini Horses legs and help out a friend in need. […]

Two Wheeled Tuesday: XR You Ready to Trail Ride?

By | 2016-08-25T09:44:34+00:00 August 23rd, 2016|Two Wheeled Tuesdays|0 Comments

When you decide to take on a project sometimes the idea of that finished project just isn’t right. This is something I’ve noticed after what I’ve done with the last 4-6 motorcycles I’ve purchased, sold, purchased, sold, and, well..you get the idea. There is always more to be desired and really for me sometimes the chase is more exciting than the time spent sitting in the garage just looking at a bike. Wondering, “What have I done? Why did I buy this? What am I going to do with it now?” […]

Hertiage Taproom Tour: Round 4 (Summer Road Trip Edition)

By | 2016-07-11T12:48:36+00:00 July 11th, 2016|Community, Occasions, Uncategorized|0 Comments

In the fourth edition of the Taproom Tour, our search for the perfect brewery takes us to Chicago, Grand Marais, Chippewa Falls and…Northeast Minneapolis. Gabe doesn’t get out much. That being said, making a pilgrimage to one of the breweries located outside of the Twin Cities would be a fantastic opportunity to participate in the Morrie’s Road Trip contest – just sayin’! Without further ado, LET’S GET IT ON: […]

That Old stuff is great, but that new stuff ain’t bad either

By | 2016-07-11T10:04:32+00:00 July 11th, 2016|Projects, Two Wheeled Tuesdays|0 Comments

  If you’ve ever met me there is a chance that myself or someone around me has mentioned that I like motorcycles. Old ones, new ones, fast ones, really slow ones, basically all types of two wheeled people movers. The other thing that I like about motorcycles is the option for customizing them. I just can’t seem to leave them alone. Now I’ve had my cafe racer at the “Dojo” for a while and finally got some time with Josh to get that bike running properly good enough for now. It seems like for a time the cafe bike was my preferred bike because of the styling, but I can feel the tides changing. I ordered up the fender eliminator kit and some other parts from outpost cycle and had my mind blown. How can such small parts make such a big difference I thought? How. Howwwwwwww. Well this is how. This bike now looks like how I wanted it to look since day one. Mean, raw and giving off the essence of, “yes it’s loud, yes it’s British and yes Sir it is still running.” Well maybe that isn’t right, but I’m putting the Café bike on the back burner for now and focusing on the Scrambler.

THE WEATHERTECH® INTERNATIONAL CHALLENGE WITH BRIAN REDMAN PRESENTED BY HAWK

By | 2016-07-07T14:38:26+00:00 July 6th, 2016|Occasions|0 Comments

Every year in the little town of Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin a massive amount of noise is made at a little place they call Road America. Not only at the track, but the excitement continues into the streets of Elkhart Lake with concourse shows taking place Friday and Saturday night downtown Elkhart. The sheer volume of people that come out and cheer during the day only feels amplified by the amount of people Friday night at the Nationwide Concours d'Elegance race car parade. Fans can arrive as early as Thursday to the track to take in the sights and sounds of some of the best vintage racing the midwest has to offer. If you're going to buy advanced tickets today is the last day, so once you get those tickets make sure to come out for qualifying on Saturday and then stay around for race day on Sunday. "A mid-summer favorite, The WeatherTech® International Challenge with Brian Redman presented by HAWK is one of the largest vintage racing events in the United States and features over 400 cars competing in several groups." The vintage racing is just one thing you can expect to see along with the celebration of the CAN-AM series 50th anniversary. Also this year will be featuring a special UOP Shadow CAN-AM tribute and Corvair reunion. The shear volume of cars old and new is what makes this event so special and something that truly shouldn't be missed.

Craigslist Café Finds: June Edition

By | 2016-06-10T10:21:04+00:00 June 10th, 2016|Two Wheeled Tuesdays|0 Comments

June brings us to the second running of the Craigslist Café Finds. This month I’ve hand picked five motorcycles that would be great Summer cruisers or even nice bikes to take on a long road trip. I also want everyone to know that there is a huge Bike Show and Swap Meet at the State Fair Grounds this weekend. It’s said to be the largest antique motorcycle show in Minnesota and I won’t be caught within 20 miles of there. I can’t. I shouldn’t. Oh boy do I want to go… Any who here is the list for June. […]
