    kind of a last minute thing. leaving the office around 2:00 pm today and flying up to the Twin Cities on business for a couple of days. Wondering if there is any must see motorcycle after marketers or dealers in the area. Thought I might stop in at Aerostitch and then remembered they are in Duluth 2 1/2 hours a way??? Love to hear some ideas.

    Thanks in Advance,

    That should work, just like Chicago, vote, and vote often!

    What are you looking for?
    There's Bobs Cycle Supply, Denis Kirk, Dr. Mudswinger, and a bunch of good motorcycle shops. Nothing really geared toward BMW other than the four dealers. ( Leos South, Moon Motors, Hopkins Hitching Post, and Judson. Near downtown there's a shop called Moto Primo which carries some good equipment (Vanson, First Gear Sidi...)
    You probably have left but if you log on remote there you go.

    Have a good trip!

    I would say that Bob's Java Hut is a must-see. Good coffee and a lot of bikes hang out there. As a bonus, if you have a picture of you and your bike (or just your bike) they'll trade a cup of java for it. And although that doesn't sound like much of a deal, who else will give you anything for a picture of your bike? Weekend mornings are the best but any day/evening, it's a cool place.
