    I'll go and ride it if I can find a new scoot. If not maybe I'll go to help out at a check or just to razz some of you guys.

    Basically you have between 60-90 miles of pain and suffering. If you start to embarrass yourself to bad they make you get off the course:lol3

    It doesn't matter. I'll be glad to go over the finer points with you in person over a beer or two. Its basically the same as the Turkey Run but there are some spots that they record your time. Even if you aren't in it for the series points, you can't help but feel the pressure to go fast and do well. Fun stuff.

    I just started taking my engine apart last night to fix the e-start, upgrade the oil pump gears and inspect the water pump shaft. I got the clutch and waterpump on the workbench now and I have all the parts/gaskets I need. Hopefully this isn't a major deal and I can finish up this week.

    I got the new items installed and the starter thing tightened, hopefully get it put back together tomorrow. One item is giving me an issue, so I'll re-look at it when I'm not so tired.

    They go easy on you for the Snow Run because of the possibilty of deep snow, 50-60 miles typically. Which becomes a blast if the snow depth is around 3-5 hard crusty frozen fun-ness...

    The Snow Run is the most/least fun you can have on a bike,depending on tire selection and/or conditions.

    I remember one year it was so good it was like a cruise thru the woods and one year so bad, you had to have the guy behind you help lift your bike out of the seat deep snow rut so you could let him past you.
