It won’t be long now. Even though the current temperature is -3 degrees, the motorcycle show season is starting to heat up. The International Motorcycle Show will be held February 3, 4, 5 at the Minneapolis Convention Center. It will be fun to sniff out the new motorcycles and gear, especially if the weather is this cold! I won’t exhibit, but I will hand out business cards for Ride the Black Hills.
I’ve just sent in my registration for the Rosemount Writers Festival and Book Fair on March 18. Although it’s not a motorcycle show, I’ll be selling copies of Ride the Black Hills, Ride Minnesota and Ride Lake Superior. It’s the first time the Rosemount has held a “celebration of the literary arts”, so I hope it’s successful.
I’ve also registered for the 30th annual Donnie Smith Bike and Car Show at St. Paul RiverCentre. The big custom bike show will be held March 25-26. I’ll be sharing booth space with Pat Shanahan, who runs Iron Horse Outfitters and Inn in Lanesboro, Minnesota. Pat’s a great guy, the Iron Horse was designed with bikers in mind, and Lanesboro is a great destination for motorcycle enthusiasts, with lots of hilly, twisty roads in the area.
I do love getting out and talking with bikers. It’s going to be fun!
