Scandon to the rescue - we owe him some gas/beer money
« on: April 26, 2011, 10:27:38 am »
FYI: scandon is - right now - in the middle of a 650 mile day to save the whole thing from dying in the Mojave Desert...


I'm booked in Rosamond Tuesday night and San Luis Obispo on Wednesday night. After seeing the miles I gotta put in on day 1 there is NO WAY I am going to sleep on anything but a mattress on this trip!!  :o

My last correspondence with scottly says that there is no one confirmed to grab godzilla at Joshua Tree tomorrow so I'll be leaving at 4am for a 650 mile burn to grab him and head to a shower and bed in Rosamond. Looking forward to meeting up with Mooshie on Wednesday for our lap at Willow Springs and the chance to meet Big Jay in the flesh, then off to San Luis Obispo for another nights sleep before heading towards home on Thursday. Friday I'll meet with MrBreeze and head to Nevada.

I like to pride myself in the amount of miles I have put on bikes, but this is just plain nuts. 1,666 miles of bumps before it's over, and all on a bike held together by magic spells and pixie dust. Say a prayer to the SOHC4 gods that I and the bike make it. And if I meet ya on the road, forgive me if I'm a mess :P

+1 Big Time!!!

I'm anxious to hear from Scottly.  Spoke to him this morning and they're shooting for a meetup today of either 3pm in J-Tree or 2pm in Lucerne Valley.

It's nothing but a steady stream of HERO's on this ride, starting in Daytona!!
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.

I'd settle for a quart of oil ;)

Godzilla is now in Greg's hands(ofreen), and he is riding two days solo to make the next hand off. Go Greg, go!!
Give me..a frame to build a bike on, and my imagination will build upon that frame
