Lookin forward to getting this underway tomorrow morning. Hard to believe it's going to be in the 30's here in the morning (70's by afternoon) especially since I got sunburnt today when I laid down in the grass next to the bike and took a quick nap (chasin that damn lizard around the track all day wore me out).

Anxious to meet the members participating in our leg and hoping all riders have a safe and enjoyable ride.

Can I have a motorcycle when I get old enough?
If you take care of it.
What do you have to do?
Lot’s of things. You’ve been watching me.
Will you show me all of them?
Sure.
Is it hard?
Not if you have the right attitudes. It’s having the right attitudes that’s hard.

We have liftoff! Thanks to "lrutt" for coming up to send me off at the speedway. His long haul ride wouldn't start this morning so he could only bring his short-haul, sidecar equiped utility ride.

I like my women a little big. Natural. Now, they shave this and wax that. It's not right. I love natural women. Big women. This trend in women has to go. Bulomia, anorexia. That's just wrong. You know what will cure that? My special sticky buns. One lick of my sticky buns and your appetite will come right back. ~ RIP Mr. Borgnine  01/24/1917 - 07/08/2012  :'(

Ah, the elusive PISTON  ;) Godzilla aims to please.

Boo to Honda. The guy's name that was supposed to be the American Honda contact is John Seidel.

That's too bad. Its Jon Seidel, I knew him a little,  he used to be a Honda rep for dealers in the mid-west states and hung out at a lot of our Indiana get togethers. I think he lived in Indy for a while. Now he's the National Press guy.

I'd give him the benefit of the doubt, pretty nice guy, but too bad for us he blew it.

I spoke with Jon's boss, Bill Savino, on Thursday afternoon. Seemed very nice and genuinely interested. Said he'd contact Jon right away. Never got to talk with Jon. Perhaps Jon expected us Fri but I explained Wilbur would be there Sat am? We should have some credability after this year so maybe it will be easier next year. Good to have the contact names  :D

Hey Godzilla, where is Wilbur?
