I had to look it up, since I had blocked it from memory. Hammerheart.
WCCO did a ride report on my trail! I saw them film it last week in the flesh.
Oh, yeah. Well there are worse beers, but it’s not a tap room I’m in a hurry to get back to.
We have vastly different taste in beers, hammerheart is one of my favorite breweries in the TC and bang being one of my least favorite.
As a matter of fact I will be at hammerheart tomorrow. Used to live a few miles away but now I need to make a special trip to get there.
Try Uncommon Loon. I really like their beer.
Anyone go downtown this weekend?
Nope. Took my sidecar rig out for a couple of rides though - pretty good fun. With the freshly rebuilt brakes it actually stops when I want it to as well.
Prop what are you running for a rig these days?
Now that our move is finalized and home projects are slowing down, I am having renewed interest in a sidecar.
It is a 1979 Suzuki GS850G, with an American Spirit Eagle sidecar. Older bike, sure, but runs great, and is a very good sidecar tug. I bought the bike off dtysdalx2 in about 2012, and the sidecar from some guy in Toledo in 2011 or thereabouts. I promptly let them both sit for several years, unconnected, and then sold the pair to LSGiant when I had to downsize. He had the two connected by a sidecar enthusiast, and once he was done with them I bought the combo back.
Anyway, point was to use this as a learning experience, because sidecars are a strange and unique type of vehicle, but I'm really enjoying it now I've had a bit of practice. Next week I'm pulling the trigger on a brand new sidecar (A Watsonian) for my Triumph Bonneville. I will sell this outfit in October this year or wait until spring next year.
I hope to get Metallic Waste running over winter (A Honda CB750 with Velorex sidecar) and that will also go up for sale next year.
Basically I'm reducing my bike stable way down. I already sold off or gave away several bikes. Planning on taking it down to ST1300, Tiger and Bonneville / Sidecar.
If Prop would agree to store that rig for me I might buy it back :) It is a real crowd pleaser.
Heh. Only trouble is I’m trying to make space.
Pretty sure I took a look at that rig when you had it for sale previously.
I would also be interested when you put it up for sale again.
Seems like we might have talked about it when you came over that time, my memory is hazy. I'll let you know when it's up for grabs. Planning some rides on it the next few months, but then I'll put it up for sale.
Nice Prop! I miss having a rig.
Yes, that’s the one.
On that bike the brakes are very useful if you would like to turn left with any sort of conviction. :)
I was downtown, but didn't go to the x-games, but did wait at the train station at the arena.
Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I feel we made the most of our limited time in Minnesota. We did head to Stillwater the last afternoon, and ended up staying in River Falls. We took WI 35 South to Prairie du Chein, before heading across Iowa and back to KC. That added several hours to the trip home, but it was much better than blasting down I-35. I thought my wife wasn't going to like it, but she really liked the history and scenery. She did comment as we crossed into Iowa that we'd been driving all day and still has nearly 6 hours to go. It was a good trip, and would like to come back again, and maybe bring the bicycles. Minneapolis has done a very good job of making a bicycle and public transportation friendly city.
Bicycles! Bicycles! Motorcycles are more better.
Glad you had a good time. I'm leaving tomorrow and heading that way.
Enjoy the fresh blacktop south of River Falls. There was a stretch before that was pretty rough, and a little construction farther south, but nothing too bad.
Of course, you probably have an alternate non paved route in mind. I did see several dirt roads that disappeared into the hills along the river.
Motorcycles are better, but they probably don't like it when you ride on the bike paths and park on the sidewalk.
