Wrap up of the week’s moto events

January 22, 2014

Minnesota weather got you down?  Hopefully you have been able to beat the winter blues by participating in some of the local events.

This last weekend the International Motorcycle Show wrapped up in Minneapolis.  I didn’t have a chance to go, so please sound off in the comments if you went.  What did you like?  What did you hate?

The REI store in Roseville hosted Jay and Conor Rasmusen Monday night as they presented their once in a lifetime trip from Minnesota to South America on their KLRs.  It was a packed house, but Jay and Conor did a wonderful job of cramming in a ton of great information and stories into an hour and a half.  Thank you for sharing!!!

Last week the Dakar wrapped up as well.  If you didn’t get a chance to watch it, then check out this video of Motorcycle highlights from this year’s race:


Minneapolis International Motorcycle Show this weekend

January 14, 2014

Just a reminder that the IMS is this weekend in downtown Minneapolis.  You can jump on over to the MinneADV Meetup site to let others know you are going.  The show looks to be similar to previous years, however show organizers tell me KTM will have a full booth this time.  If memory serves me correctly, they haven’t been to the Minneapolis show in the last several years. Here is the full exhibitor list.

More information and tickets.


2013 L.A. X Games start today, EnduroX Sunday

August 1, 2013

Those of us who get into Adventure & Dual Sport riding don’t have a lot of broadcast T.V. events to watch that are related to our hobby/sport.  However, if you have never seen an EnduroCross event, then it is about as close as you can get right now.  Its a combination of motocross and enduro.  Some of the obstacles these guys cross are mind boggling, and to see them do it in a timed race is quite entertaining.  This weekend you will be able to watch one on ABC sports as the 2013 Los Angeles Xgames EnduroX event is broadcast Sunday from 2-4 CST. If you don’t have cable, this may be the only one you get to see all year. Mark your calendars.

Successful Swap!

April 6, 2013

Thanks to all who attended the inaugural MinneADV swap meet today.  The weather was a bit disheartening this morning, but that didn’t stop a very good crowd from turning out.  See photos below. In fact, by 9AM the rain and wind died down right on cue.  It was great weather!

We had a good balance of buyers and sellers. We also had a good mix of different parts and gear.  I would say at the busiest hour (between 9-10AM) there were probably 50 people.  We ran out of space in the pavilion and a few people just backed their vehicles up to the side walk and sold from there.  There were a lot of new riders that I hadn’t met before and new stories to share. I think I talked with just about every seller and they were all glad they came.  Most were just happy to clean out their garages and see their stuff go to a good home.

Some suggested we do this again in the Fall.  I’ll have to think about that.  But we will definitely do it again next Spring!

Recap of Adventure Movie Night

March 18, 2013

Good turnout Saturday for the Adventure Movie Night at Leos South.  I imagine there were about 60-70 people there.  The Touratech sponsored movie was full of great scenery and humorous outakes & getoffs.  Hope more of these type of community events get setup.  See our event list for those we know about.

See worthless dark phone photo of the event below:
