    Don't shut us out Doug! It gives us sofajockeys something to engage in! What kind of time is it on that spot? Is it possible to adjust to local time?

    Anyone out there got any video of Doug riding this bike? It would be great to get an idea of the size and sound of it:D

    1931 , too new for this edition of the Cannonball.

    If the next time they run it , the bikes can be from the 30's I have a friend I'll bug to use his Blue Star BSA.

    The last Cannonball was 2 years ago,and had an overnight stop in Albuquerque.A few of us went down and had a great time.A wide range of bikes in various stages of restoration(or not).If you are anywhere near the route,it is a MUST.Ride safe Doug.
