I just got word # 57 is through the finish, so Dough should be right around there if not, in already.

Wonder how Darrel (#52) did after his little trip down the side of the hill. Was he able to fix the bike and finish today or not?

According to his website/blog, he went to the hospital and found his foot was broken bad enough that they scheduled surgury to put some pins in it. He says he is disappointed he won't be able to ride to the finish...

Doug rides into Dudley Perkins shootin!

Oh wait, that's a camera in his right hand, not a gun.





Doug brought out the smiles.



Nice to meet ya Doug & congratulations on finishing. I'm sure the ride home will still be an adventure.

Thanks for the pics Adamco2, some good ones in there !
Congradulations to all the CannonBallers that made it across the bridge today .
Really satisfying to see Shinya Kimura make it to the finish . He and his friend have had his 1915 Indian down to the crankcases several times in the last 2 weeks and yet they have it going again. Great effort!

Kudos to everyone that even started this ride. Big Congrats to those who made it to the finish. And especially to Doug.

Doug, now all you got to do is ride it back home to Alabama.
