Just spoke to Accolay. He's got leaking carbs and can't fix in time. Sooooooo, it looks like this trip is off. Someone want to tell me where to ship?

Godzilla made it to the BackfireMoto event 34 in Seattle and visited many other of Seattle famous places. GODZILLA destroys Seattle and then visits some famous places and visits the friendly bikers at the BackfireMoto 34 event. The highlight of the tour was meeting Bonnie Vile one of Seattle's Roller Derby Stars from the Tilted Thunder Rail Birds. His last stop he wanted to visit the STARBUCKS mermaids on the clock tower, they were scared and he spared them from destruction.  GODZILLA is heading to Montana the Big Sky Country. Duanob keeps him calm with a beer during the BackfireMoto event 34 after his tour in Seattle. I think the beer helped him get ready for his Montana experience.

Yes, it is with most sincere regret that I cannot ride this thing out. I was really looking forward to this marathon trip too. Carbs are still off the bike at this point, trying to figure out if it's the valve, orings or jet needle not seating.

talked to Grasscutter on the team northern thread. he and i live near Omaha NE and he's planning on going to Rockerbox so he can take GZ. I hope to ride part of the way with him if things workout. tlbranth, you should be getting a PM from Grasscutter with his mailing address for shipment of lefty. backup plan is to ship GZ straight to Rockerbox.

That's great news guys; the less miles Lefty spends in a box, the better! ;D
Maybe it's time to start a thread on the main forum, in case there is someone along the route who hasn't been following the relay threads? ::)

Thanks for posting that Brian. The very next day I was off to vacation to I didn't have time to post some pics. I will edit this post when I get the chance.

We had a great time with GZ. I love riding around Seattle to all the cool little tourist things and neighborhood events. It's a great city, when the sun is out, and it came out for Godzilla, or else.....

It's alway nice meeting members face to face. Brian and I are in the same neighborhood and have taken a coule rides together. It was nice meeting Flybox and tlbranth for the pick up and drop off. I hope to get to ride with you all soon.

Hey guys,

I just moved to Vancouver, from Victoria this week!

I'm picking up a bike Tuesday morning, but my apartment has no place to store the bike. If anyone can help me out, that would be amazing. I'm not looking to work on it and won't need access to it. I just need a place to put it while I work on school and can find the time to get it to my garage on the island.

Thanks so much!
