so, I made it up to Gonzo Matts place around 530 and we immediately set to the task of cleaning up my exhaust valves. Took some finagling, but we were able to get the valves out and then cleaned up the carbon buildup which was all that was necessary. Even more finagling was required to get the valves back in the head, but eventually ingenuity and persistence got the job done.

about this time the lovely Mrs. Gonzo and the baby Gonzo made an appearance to announce that Matt's dinner was ready...so after a couple minutes of making the baby laugh, I took my happy ass home. Matt gave me excellent directions to get back to I-71, which made better sense than what Garmin was giving me.

I had some trouble in downtown Columbus though, as it is currently a clusterfuck of massive, epic proportions. Word of warning, you cannot access I 70 East from I 71 South...and its a major pain in the ass if you dont get off 71 soon enough, coz then you'll end up on 70 WEST...gaaaaaaaahhhhhhh!!!

I could happily have shot the moron who's responsible for that bullshit...but fortunately, he or she was not present and I didnt have a firearm anyway...

made it home by 930 and intend to put the bike together tomorrow...assuming all goes well, I'll probably go to Crow on Sunday (or maybe even tomorrow night)

anyone still planning to go despite the weather?

The woman went to the cruiser when she saw it catch fire, but the officers were semi- conscious and unresponsive, and both front doors were jammed shut. She was trying to pull the door open, and another driver stopped and climbed through the window of the cruiser and mule-kicked the door open. The woman and the other driver got both officers out on the roadside, and a squad member enroute to his squad stopped at the scene to do first aid. The first squad on scene called for air care, but the chopper couldn't fly for high winds and low cloud cover. Both officers had bloody head wounds, one had a broken jaw, the other had two broken legs and possible internal injury. The driver of the pickup was assisted by other passers-by. He had airbag and seatbelt injuries.

Were the officers wearing seat belts?

I don't know, but I would guess negative. Of course, I am not a crash expert. I've been slapped on the wrist at court before for guessing .

I sure that if this crash had happened in early morning hours, when traffic in that area is very light, those officers would have been in that car when it burned.

FYI - to the dedicated riders out there -

The Road Enduro riding out of Flint Ridge Park, Sunday, in Licking County

Has been postponed. Weather.

Due to poor weather conditions predicted for tomorrow, Oct, 28, we are rescheduling the Adventure Enduro for either next Saturday or Sunday, depending on the forecast. If you are planning on attending call me at 740 281-6761 on Thursday of this week to confirm the day. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.
