My first ride on a motorcycle was down a gravel road in SW Minnesota. Gravel because I was a bit shy of the legal age to ride. Sugar sand covered township roads, a tank shifter and a mousetrap clutch will build character. It will also keep the other kids off your bike.

It was there I developed skills that have panned out for me where luck left off.

Anymore "New Riders of the Lutefisk Prairie" out there?

I'll be one on Memorial Day weekend.. I'm riding the Bonzia Rally out of Winona on that weekend.. It's put on by a club just on the other side of the MN/SD state line, near Watertown, but they hold the rally on the East end of the state.

I'll also be up in MN for the MN BMW Rally and the MN Guzzi Rally (both held at the same place, different times) and I also ride with a few guys that are members of TeamStrange out of Minneapolis...

So I'll be a MN rider on a pretty regular basis this summer. Does that count? :)

My kind of drugs...

Miller did not invest in Hamm’s in 2003 and according to Mr. Genatempo “you won’t see investment behind it in 2004.” On the other hand Dan stated “we’re very attached to the brand,” referring to Hamm’s, and that “it’s great to have that brand loyalty but there needs to be more of it.” The good news is Hamm’s sales are up in three states, California, Wisconsin and Minnesota. Chances are these states, for the time being, are not in the consolidation plans.
So, Mr. Mark, I'm expecting you, as a CALIFORNIA resident to do your part and drink MORE HAMM'S!!! :D

Minnesotans can usually tell people from Wisconsin.

You can't tell 'em much, but we always tried.

Which reminds me. You know why Little Baby Jesus was not born in Wisconsin?

New owner in Duluth, MN.

Been dualsport riding for about 10 years. Still poor in sand. mud, or wet grass, going over logs, deep ruts, creek or river crossings, high speeds off-road, descending hills with many loose and large rocks, and ascending hills with tree roots crossing at wierd angles. What's that leave? Putting around.

Yeah, but you're in a great area to learn the other stuff and still enjoy the ride..

I've got a hankering for Walleye Fingers at Canal Park...:)
