Yee-Haww !!!
Way to geterdone.
Smooth sailing into the land of fruits and nuts,


If anyone following this ride wants to find out how hard it's been on the old machines, just go to the Cannonball web-site and read the Riders Blogs. Some of the blogs aren't being updated , others are.
Steve Rinkers and Shinya Kimura's blogs are up to date as well as some of the others. It's pretty much a constant flog for everyone , even if their bikes don't break.

Finish line meetup....

I was counting on you, Doug, as I've got a kitchen pass to ride up and see you at the finishing line in San Fransisco. I hope you have the time and energy left to say hi. I'm a big fan of yours.

From July 26, 2012

Doug in Wyoming

When we arrived in Gillette this is where we found CannonBall #88.






This was the condition of #88






Here is Doug finishing up in the parking lot at the Holiday Inn under the only light in the parking lot that kept flickering on and off.



At about 10PM Doug was motoring around the parking lot with a big smile on his face!

When we left he was looking forward to a good nights sleep and the ride on Sunday once he got hauled to the top of the Big Horn Mountains.

Great meeting you, Doug, and have a safe, exciting ride to San Fran!

Sorry about the small photos. I could not figure out how to make them larger and figured smaller was better than none at all. Help?!
