Saturday night was non-stop delay, but it was fun. I had gone to the Superbike races at Laguna Seca on Saturday, then went to Cannery Row that evening. The street is blocked off to cars...just motorcycles and pedestrians. I spent about 4 hours telling people about my hacked Wee-Strom as they asked questions.

The funny thing was, that despite the custom paint (desert khaki) and all the other stuff on the rig, two things sparked the most notice: the gearheads were intrigued by the leading legs, and nearly everyone commented on the Rotopax cans mounted on the side of the car. Lesson learned: if you want to increase your chances of conversation about your rig, add a Rotopax or two.
