First off , Go , Doug , go !
On a different note, I just read in one of the BMW riders blog about a fellow BMW team that needed and didn't have a tool to remove a special 8-sided nut holding a wheel bearing on their rear wheel. One of the team went to OCC and showed them what they needed and the guys at OCC water-jetted the piece out and welded it to a 3/8 drive socket for them.
Pretty cool and shows that even though the TV image is , uh , there are decent folks in the building, motorcycle folks.
I wish I could get up to the route to see the rolling party !
Again , Go Doug !
