    Yes and no.

    A 950 Adventure can get up to 140 in no time while passing. What Kevin looked for were speed infractions and the duration of those infractions. Once dumped to a spreadsheet, your track log shows all this info at a glance. For example, Finndian's track log showed that his bike hit a top speed of 336 km/h...........for a distance of 20 meters. :lol3 Of course this is basically a signal loss anomaly and everybody's track logs are full of them. If it showed you were running 125 km/h for say 1000 meters then you would have some explaining to do.

    Then Kevin superimposed your track log over the actual route on a map. If your track log varied too much in too many places then that would warrant a DQ. Many sections of the route ran along paved roads or highways, all very tempting if you want to make up time but easily detected when the track log is analyzed.

    Just got an email my my doctor, after reviewing my xray taken on Tuesday.... Guess I should not have continued to ride for another 17hrs after it happened...

    "You do have a shoulder separation. You need to get a sling and wear it. I have referred you to orthopedic surgeon Dr Henning. He is in Owen Sound but also comes to Hanover. You can get a sling from one of the nurses anywhere on site or at a local pharmacy"

    I would do it all again though!

    I read that already on the site...I asked to spectate because I had just heard of it lately. I can't even find anyone in my area to go for short rides no less a event that would cost $200

    Well there's not really much to spectate. Your best bet is to show up early for the start and follow some support trucks to the various pit stops. That would be your best chance of seeing most of the riders.

    So I was wondering if anyone has any videos of the race from their bike. For some reason my video camera didn't work, maybe it was in cahoots with my GPS. If so can you send me something or a link to it thanks. Just kinda want to show my kids how much fun you can have on a bike for 18 hours straight :clap.
    Thanks
