Good to see Embro come through WP2. Was wondering if he had more bike problems.

Just stay the course, good buddy, one km at a time . . . that's what will get you all the way to Lima. That, and a whole lot of other things, including not a small measure of just plain luck. But getting swallowed in the mania won't help your cause. I know you know this . . . just keep 'er steady as she goes . . . so much love to you - mom

I've ridden with Ned enough to know that he'll stick to the gameplan. He's the most cerebral rider I've ever seen; very safe and focused...

I just thought of something, Ned said he could do 120 while the 450RR's were capable of 160...

120/160= 75%

I guess Smooth IS fast!

In a very safe and focused manner, I'm sure!
