Thursday - September 9, 2004
Lori and I have been working feverishly all week to get the 8000 shots from last weekend online. I was hoping to have an update tonight but it's 2:00am and we still haven't finished sorting and pulling highlights for this week's update. Ron and Nancy are in Nevada for next weekend's Femmoto trackdays (which we will be flying out to cover next week) so we have been helping them stay on top of TOD-related news and orders, plus trying to get caught up on my own backlog of orders, so hang in there folks.
The rains moved across the area without much drama. We just came back from Maryville to pick up supplies, and the Gap was clear of obstructions. No mudslides...a few trees had fallen across the road and had been cleared, but there was still some bark and wood scattered around where they fell that should be blown off as soon as it dries up and a few cars run across it. As always, make a sighting run to check things out on your first trip across.
We're going to get some sleep and finish sorting in the morning so we hope to have an update for you tomorrow. (well, today actually)
Wednesday - September 1, 2004
I'll be around this weekend since it's a holiday thing and every hotel within a hundred mile radius is booked solid. There's another hurricane heading this way, and it looks a little more promising than last, but hopefully we won't get hammered.
Shots from last weekend are uploading now into the store. Last weekend was pretty busy, but the accident level was typical. A few minors, but nothing major and hence no major police presence. (see how that works) I did see an unusual amount of bad driving. I nearly hit 4 cruisers in my lane on the way up in the car to shoot Saturday, and that wasn't even a full run.
Folks, driving in the wrong lane is just a bad habit. It will not improve your riding/driving ability, it typically sets you up with a bad line, and it increases the odds of spooking someone else into crashing...screwing things up for all of us. It may look clear to cut across, but you may be coming up to a very fast blind curve that some may come around with surprising speed. If you find yourself crossing the yellow on left handers and can't seem to stop, you are almost definitely turning in too early...it's the most common culprit of bad lines that I see out there. Try staying to the right longer as you enter the turn, or better yet, just ride near the white line at all times.
We'll start things off by picking on some lane crossers
More scary stuff
There was some pretty skillful riding and driving going on though
This cat went down and broke his clip-on. (handlebar) His buddy made a splint from some wrenches and electrical tape that worked pretty well!
There was a handful of 2-strokes running around
Our local buddy Joe rolled through on his Harley to play with the other cruisers and pick on a few sportbikes
Sweet Cobra - Don't think the 12 o'clock wheelie bar will get much use at the Gap, but it was fun to hear the questions it would raise everytime he went by
My friends Jay and Gigi came in to stay for a week and hang with a few Canadians.
The obligatory sparky shot and pretty face
