Wow, it's neat to see a guy that can focus on the race, but still stop to update adv rider w/ his mobile! He must have Verizon! Me & Frog, we got the same style!

GO!!!

AHHHHH Brake clips

I SHOULD HAVE REPLACED THOSE SAD LITTLE THINGS....

I had an SMS exchange with the Chase crew and both clips, pins and pads came out of the front brake near SF and one of the rear clips was missing too...

Sorry Matt. Good thing you don't use the brakes very much...

RM 465. Next hook up with the pit crew will be Vizciano about RM 550. He seams to be really moving! He is through the TT trafic and that is GREAT news!! BTW, the TT race is very close and exciting with speeds around 100mph+. Leader doing 115mph a while ago.

Yikes! How the heck does that even happen? I'm glad they fixed it. It seems like weird stuff always happens to race bikes - riding at the limit I guess?

Go Frog Go!

Chase crew reported that Matt had a little one-on-one with a TT! He is ok, a bit sore, the bike isn't as shiney as it was 500 miles ago but he is on the move again.
TT #97 is in lead at RM 705!! Top 3 bikes 1x 8x 5x are right on top of each other.

Man, that goes to show how far out in LaLa land you were at the pit. The "latte moca starbucks thing" was left over coffee grounds run throgh Frogs sock. It's all we could find to warm you up. I sure hope this chase crew is meeting a Frog that is as wound up & as good to go as you were!!!

RM 550 By the way, chase truck spot is back on line.

He's been moving slow but steady for the last two hours. I'm sure he's ready for some food and a change in terrain!

I just got off the phone with the Frogger at RM 615.

He's had a rough few hours in the silt beds. Trucks going by causing him to hug the high silt bed walls or scramble out. Also his the starter fuse blew and he's been too tired to kick start it so he's using a pair of pliers to jump the bike to life. He's sounds good though and is in good spirits. They are working on the bike a bit. He's not at all injured, just sore. He needed a little sit down break anyway :)

He'll be motoring on soon.
