    Been to this event the past couple of years. Always entertaining and some cool stuff shows up, like the Norton cafe racer and the Motus I saw last year.

    Hey, Dawg. Brian and I will be there. We might even coax Ducky 950 out of his turkey coma

    You know you are riding slow when the camera battery doesn't last for the entire ride.

    Ha ha - that's Tom from Manayunk Triumph - he is SLOW!!

    He used my vintage trials bike the following year and was going so slow that he actually stalled it and then kick started it without putting a foot down -
    now that is slow......

    At about 1:48 you can see how serious they are about racing. They give you a paper plate, a ball point pen and a piece of duct tape to make a number plate and tape it on the front of your bike.

    My favorite bikes to watch are the bigger cruiser bikes or the sport bikes with slicks. There are usually some good riders but most of them drop their bikes. I get the feeling that they don't drop their bike very much.

    Here is my number plate from last year. I have to defend my 3rd or 4th finish this year. I won the super cool liscense plate frame. And I want another one.

    That is a well displayed number plate. I have one or two of those in my moto shed.

    Congratulations on your finish last year!

    I am gunning to dethrone you - ha ha.

    I am not sure if I am bringing my hunter orange knit hat or my animal skin hat foe the slow race. I think I had the orange one on last year. Maybe I will bring both just so I have a choice.
