Glad you made it and that you're still in it.

There's just something morbidly fascinating about this event - especially this year's course.

I've never followed along with this kind of event before... but, having a couple of the scoot forum folks in on this makes it more personal. Thanks for the updates!

Today was the most challenging with 30 odd miles of dirt roads followed by 3 hours in rain, sleet and snow. I was not prepared for snow since when I checked the weather forecast this morning it was supposed to be 40-60f along today's route. My times after the first checkpoint will suck since I had to stop for coffee to thaw out my hands. My so called waterproof winter riding gloves were anything but. Enjoying a fire in my own house instead of staying at the hotel with the rest tonight.

The best answer I have found for cold wet hands are Reima Baltic snowmobile mitts. I never leave home without mine when travelling.

Got enough snow last night that rooftops, trees and other surfaces are white. Fortunately the road was warm enough it is dry. 28f when I woke up but the sun is out and once it clears the peaks it will warm up nicely. Handlebar muffs are now on my scoot.

I'm waiting for the sun to hit the roads before leaving but I see a few are already on the road http://followride.com

Yes, congratulations to everyone !

I'd been following DaBinChe's seesaw battle for first place since Day One. Those Vespa GT200s have been very competitive.
