A few random pics from February of 2017. I went out several times to try to get some sunset pics. This one was a little before sunset: . . . Then in early March it was time to head down to Montevallo for the annual Top Gun competition at the Alabama Motorcycle Safety Center. I really wanted to do this on my Super 8. Besides the long distance it was real cold in the morning so I cheated. I got on the road at 6:25 AM after scraping enough frost off my windshield to see where I was going. I drove down to the Wally World in ALabaster where I unloaded my scooter. It was now 47 degrees, plenty warm to ride. I got to Montevallo just after 9. Their large lots weere filled with hundreds of cones. They had 4 different courses ranging from easy to really difficult. There weren't many riders there yet so I got in a lot of practice on courses 1 and 2, the easier courses. I also tried #4 but had trouble just not getting lost let alone actually making it around the cones. MaydayMike was there on his Triumph which has around a Gazilion miles on it. Nice Goat was there on his Versys 1000. Kris, a Bamarides member was there working the Dixie Abate booth and didn't bring a bike so I talked here into taking my scooter for a spin. I couldn't stand the idea of her spending the entire day here, watching others ride and not getting to ride any herself. Then she returned the favor and took a few pics of me with my camera. . These guys did the course in formation. They were pretty good. Nice Goat killing some cones. And Nice Goat got this pic of me: And here's a video of someone doing the most difficult course: https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10211067416633709 This is always an amazing event with some real riding talent on display.
