Today, Jonah and Ned head to scrutineering. Finishing touches and last minute work is currently being done to the bikes.







Not much for me to do today, sort the boxes for the truck with Robb and wait for another red meat fest for dinner

Starting Saturday I won't have free access to the web so the posts likely won't include photos. Suppose it won't matter as the F5 thread will be well underway by then

Phew, just finished reading the whole thread.

Ok, you're right, seriously I'm glad you're there, of course I'm much happier sitting on my ass in Fort MacMurray instead.

Be sure to say hi and give a handshake to the boys for me, Jonah might need a hug.

Oh yeah, can you ask Bill about his light/fairing setup for me? I like the look of those LED's and I need a front end for my 525.

You can also put me on page one for the first batch of books.

Doh, sorry about that last post. I was using Chris's laptop and didn't realize I was logged in as him. A fellow named Stephen ( aka Quantis ) gave me some photo lessons....in the end it was decided I should just take lots

Some quality photos today for the book, sorry but I gotta save them a bunch of others though that I'll try to get posted.

Ted's already off-course!

Pace yourself, man

and put me down for a book. I want to hear what it's like to be there, and be there, and then suddenly realize "holy shit, I'm really here"

That sorta sums up what I'm going threw





Chris has been invaluable in regards to Neds endeavor

From designing the navigational tower, creating the bikes front fairing and many, many hours of wiring on his bike down here. We spent the afternoon taking photos in the team pits.

+1 Youré are doing great, but now is the easy part.

Be careful not to let things get too quiet or the cheering F5 masses will quickly transform into a raging, hysterical mob.
