YIPPEEEEEEEEE :clap:clap:clap.

    This show gets around 20,000-30,000+people over the 3 days so it will be fun to mingle around the display and listen to what people say !!:evil

    I saw a GS hack there in the Soundrider display several years ago, all covered with mud from an Alaska run, and it was an "AHA!" moment for me. That following summer I met Mikepa at a BMW rally, and the rest is history. Took Vernon's class, bought my rig, fixed it up, and started the journey from hack n00b to hack novice.

    Maybe you'll inspire some similar future hackistas!

    I seem to remember some other show with an unfavorable reception. I Can't remember if it was your bike or not, but this pic really shows off the simple beauty of what you have built. I followed along with both builds you did, and I think you arrived at a great looking machine!
