So, not exactly how I wanted this to end, 100 miles of sand, rocks, ruts, and whoops on a KLR(my fastest lap was 38 minutes),...although it ended a bit better than Chucks.
Chuck will, from now on be known as "One more Lap" Venable....at about 9:45 am., 15 minutes before the end of the race, Chuck says "I feel good, I'm gonna do one-more-lap". Well, 10.5 miles into that last 11 mile lap...smash, and a broken collar-bone was the result. I hope your doing better now Chuck.
Chuck got Mark by, I bleieve 1 lap, Chuck ran 12, Mark 11, and I had only 9. But I was on a KLR.
Anyhow, I went out and took the checkerd flag. Then down to remove the transponder.
Friend ElectroJoe came around the morning just before the race ended with my favorite,,,KrispyKreme
I wheeled my bike down to Branham's pit to swap wheels and sprockets.
We load up everything back in Branhams truck, and I'm off for the ride home.
I take it easy, checking my footpeg a couple of times on the way. Just a nice easy ride home.
Now the next morning was another story....I could barely walk, the stairs at work nearlly killed me.
I believe, if I do this again, I'll try to spend a little more time preparing my body. This year i done no training at all, that may explain the soreness
So,....just some random shots of the bike after the race, See ya'll next year.
