    I talked to Kevin in Spirit Lake on Friday evening. He and Patience were doing well. He had a small list of little items to address, but no major problems. His biggest irritation of the day was the hinge pin on the rear fender rattling. Rattling in such a way that it sounded like it could be engine noise.

    It was great to chat with him. I'm sure it gets tiring to deal with the crowds every evening asking silly questions, when tired from a long day of riding and knowing there's work to do....
    Kevin didn't seem phased by it at all. :-) I saw Brenda a few times but never got the chance to talk to her.

    Any updates? I haven't seen Kevin in the standings. I'm going to Spokane after work Friday to gawk at the bikes. Anyone else?

    Somewhere in this thread is a day by day route. I think they are at Lone Wolf Harley in Spokane this Friday night. Anybody know for sure? Live in Lewiston, work in Pullman, and plan to head to Spokane from work on Friday.

    Yup, we'll be there too. Trying to guess their route south from Spokane to Kennewick on Saturday ... maybe get some drive-by shots.

    His Position is 65th with 2 days left . Kevin Naser has ridden 2617 out of 300 miles . Dean Bordigioni remains atop the overall standings aboard his 1914 single-cylinder, belt-drive Harley-Davidson. Fred Wacker is on track to make history as well, having put together a perfect score on his 1913 Indian to hold down second place overall and first place in Class II (which combines multi-cylinder, single-speed bikes with single-cylinder, multi-speed bikes)
    Dave Volneck’s 1913 indiain would be in first place but they change riders when a family die end up with 100 penalty points
    Theres amazing 47 riders with a perfect score of 3,087 points . It could be the largest number of riders to make to the end of the race

    1916 Indian PowerplusKevin Nase came in 62 second place having riden 3224 out 3441 miles. First place went to 1913 Harley belt drive that road all 3441 miles . Second place overall, and first place in Class II (which combines multi-cylinder, single speed bikes with single-cylinder, multi-speed bikes) was Fred Wacker aboard a 1913 Indian. Fred’s victory also represents history, since he became the first person to earn a perfect Cannonball score aboard a so-called “Hedstrom” Indian. one of the original generation of the company’s bikes designed by founder Oscar Hedstrom.
    Andrea LaBarbara’s third place in the final standings aboard a 1913 Henderson added another bit of history, since she led a record contingent of four women Cannonball riders this year, and three of them—Andrea, Kersten Heling and Jody Perewitz—finished with perfect scores.

    After looking at the photos on this page, I went back to page one, and re-read how he acquired Patience, and what he started out with. The little wheels are turning in MY head: Could I find a suitable bike and do the Cannonball,too?
