Not sure if I would do this race again. I am looking into something that is a better fit for my long term goal.

Good to see you made it back safe. Memories of lower times usually stick with us better--and make for good campfire stories!

Hmmmm.....


Looking at the entry list I see nobody by the name of "Roth" or "Gibson". Are you all taking the year off to give the rest of us a chance?

Negative. Time from radiator geyser to replacement radiator sourced and installed... about 4.5 hours. Yeah, not up to rally standards, I know... but this is a daily driver and I didn't have a spare in the van.

Fortunately that happened when I had lots of time on my hands... sitting around twiddling my thumbs here.

I noticed that picture of the carb has "Not for aircraft use". I just wanted to say... have you SEEN any in-car or helmet cam from BRS? *grin*

Impressive! Have fun this weekend! Was thinking about the big jump on Jerdan falls road this morning, the one with the big rock on the right hand side of the landing..... oh and the section of road on Fullerville, where the road transitions on the Apex of that gravel corner and you blindly shoot into the woods....LOVE that corner The concrete bridge sweepers on Jayville is a little tense with the RR crossing. Don't forget Gilkey corner

My rally did not go as planned. Luckily nothing broken but I will probably be hobbling on crutches for a while. Destroyed the front wheel on the bike. Hopefully taught that tree not to jump out in front of me again!

Glad it's not too serious
