Thanks, I didn't know that policy existed. Is that a change from the previous run?

Barnone, ditto that my friend. This ain't the place to argue politicks. THIS is where we are all brothers and sisters no matter what! And before anyone says "yeah, but families fight all the time...." ..... I agree but the ride report forum is not the place to have it out!

Take the politics down to the page for rants, and air your differences there. Please. For the sake of the tribe. Thank you.

No actually I don't think so, but it might have been looked the other way then, and I think the routes wasn't planned in the same manner as this year is.

gee, you don't think the etch a sketch was for humor do you, like plans change on the moment notice. Like when your head gasket blows out or your cylinder gets knackered. Some of you need to get a life.

Hey Doug. Another great adventure. Didn't catch the report early enough. You guys took the ferry from my old hometown, Muskegon. Cool. I woulda sent my old man down there. He loves those old bikes.
Good luck. Have fun.
Catch ya somewhere in the world.

Well, when I found them broke down, there certainly were chase trucks involved.

The "broom" truck that you refer to is a BMW sidecar tow rig. Bikes that can't continue are picked up by whoever has room in their truck, trailer etc...

The trucks didn't go on the ferry crossing, they had to make the journey through Chicago.

I think one needs to distinguish between a rider's personal support crew/vehicle, and the sweep/chase/ rescue crew who are part of the cannonball official crew.

A riders support crew cannot give assistance between checkpoints. They probably don't follow the same route as the riders and the cannonball chase crew, as many are driving motor homes or trucks with trailers.

The sweep/chase/rescue vehicles I "think" can give fluids, gas and oil, to riders but not parts.

A rider is on his own between checkpoints as far as tools and parts are concerned. The rules may allow for one rider to give assistance to another, but no outside help.

If a rider cannot restart and ride a broke down vehicle, the sweep/chase/rescue driver brings them to the next checkpoint.

At the checkpoint or end of stage, the riders use all the help they can get.

I wouldn't swear to any of this.

That all sounds fair. The bike and the rider need to do the miles between checkpoint on their own. I would think that if they got "fluids" help that should deduct a certain number of points.

Hopefully soon Doug will be posting a little video of the Indian chugging away. Pa pop pa pop pa pop
