Denny and the boys really rocked the river valley Saturday night. It was so good to see him up there in the spotlight after all the health problems he overcame this past year. So we really celebrated. I'm gonna have to go up to Red Wing and get new soles on my boots after all that dancing! Everyone in the place was smiling, tapping their feet, really LIVIN'

We hit up the Harley museum before we went over to the show. Most of us hadn't been there before.
That day, Saturday, was like holy shit motorcycle overload blow your fucking mind day.
The history, the bikes, pictures, stories, videos, Josh's exhibit! WOW!

The venue was on the 3rd floor of this old abandoned building and it couldn't have been better.
Plenty of space. The natural lighting throughout the day was constantly changing, making the paint jobs POP and the chrome glisten.
I do a cylinder head for them every year.
I hadn't seen either of these bikes before in person.
It's really great to kneel on the floor and see all the details.
PS found a big bruise on my arm when I got home and the only thing I can think of is maybe it was Noots monster grip as he threw me out of the HD cafe. Hahahahaha. We had fun!
I wonder how light it was? Aluminum frame!
Very cool. The polished fins, WOW. and the paint!
I didn't take any pictures at the Show Class party but it was pretty intense! My dad said it was just like parties used to be back in the day.
Jam Packed, So Loud and So Rowdy! My ears are still ringing.
This picture about sums it up. Most fun you could have without riding a motorcycle!

Mother Nature tried too, but she couldn't stop us from making Milwaukee. It started snowing Thursday night into Friday, leaving us with over a foot of wet heavy snow and ice. The temps dropped and the wind picked up drifting roadways entirely shut. My dad plowed snow for 10 hours to get out.
Friday nights Dice magazine party was at the Harley museum bar/cafe. I had never read their mag before, but it seems pretty good.
We got there early and I finally got to see Warrens flathead racer in person. Noot built the bottomend and I did the topend/ flowbench work. It's really a neat bike in person!
The place filled up fast and you would think Milwaukee of all places wouldn't run out of beer? We found more though.
If you ever run into Whitey and Rich, you can bet they'll want to take a picture and give you a hug.
My dad was pretty wound when I went to pick him up. He was worried my mom would get stranded in the country without power. Blizzards can turn serious real quick & I damn near had to tie him up to get him in the car. It all worked out though and we had a ball.
Rich asking this guy where he buys his suits?
It sure felt good to stretch our legs. We walked miles over the course of the weekend.
